The Math Book for Girls and Other Beings Who CountBook - 2000
This entertaining title in the Books for Girls series shows girls -- and boys, too -- that math is part of everyday life. They can try the math puzzles and activities to see for themselves how useful -- and how much fun -- math can be. They will also meet real women who use math in their jobs every day. Kids can learn why fractions are important when they bake a cake, develop spatial visualization skills by building a geodesic dome big enough to play in, use geometry to design unique wrapping paper, discover how grids simplify drawing pictures, and much more.
