Rated 0

Maths in Nature, For National Curriculum Key Stage 1, Interest age: from c 5 years, Prose: non-fiction, Wildlife (Children's / Teenage), Educational: Mathematics & numeracy

Journey into the natural world and discover that numbers, patterns, shapes can be found by observing everyday plants and animals

What if animals and plants knew maths, just like us? Would flowers bloom in patterns? Would raindrops fall in rhythm? Would birds balance evenly on branches? In Sorting through Spring, nature comes to life to help children grasp concepts of patterning, sorting, data management, and probability.

Maths in Nature is a lovely four book series, which explores seasonal and natural beauty through maths concepts, which are made engaging with energetic and colourful paper collage illustrations, poetic language and thoughtful questions. Each book also includes nature notes at the end, which give more information about the animals and plants featured in the seasonal scenes. Colourful, cut- paper collage art uniquely evokes the natural world, while two levels of text - one a lyrical story, the other asking children to problem-solve - bring the reader to a full understanding of the maths concept being covered. The engaging "What if?" format of these informational picture books is sure to delight five- to seven-year-olds.
