Playing with Shapes
Talking math with your child is simple and even entertaining with this better approach to shapes!
Written by a celebrated math educator, this innovative inquiry encourages critical thinking and sparks memorable mathematical conversations. Children and their parents answer the same question about each set of four shapes: "Which one doesn't belong?" There is no one right answer--the important thing is to have a reason why. Kids might describe the shapes as squished smooshed, dented, or even goofy. But when they justify their thinking, they're talking math!
