Starting Off with Measuring by Peter Patilla
A new title in the "Starting Off With" series, which is aimed at giving children aged 4 upwards a head start in maths, this title uses descriptive artwork to introduce length, height and width, distances, weight, and capacity and the ways we measure them. A wide variety of activities gives opportunities for lots of practice in new skills. The books tie in closely with the Numeracy Strategy in the UK. It also includes an historical look at the ways measurements were taken. Each title contains a word bank of key mathematical terms.
