Ever wondered how to make the subject of number sets more engaging for students? Wonder no more. In Journey through the World of Numbers, Singing Turtle Press presents a whimsical adventure tale that teaches the subject for you.
In this exciting new ebook, teacher/author Jeremiah Dyke takes students on an odyssey in which the number "1" journeys from his home to and through the various sets of numbers. With a full-size illustration adorning every page, this ebook shows students how Natural Numbers differ from Whole Numbers; how those sets differ from the Integers, and so on. By reading this story, students not only learn critical Common Core info on number sets, they also explore philosophical questions about numbers. And at the end of the ebook, supplemental questions cement key ideas and stimulate classroom discussion.
Richly illustrated by U.K. artist Paul Wrangles, the 47-page ebook engages students' curiosity as to whether this number world is real, imaginary, or something completely different. While Journey through the World of Numbers is aimed primarily at children in Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1, the book engages children as young as 5 years old since the story is an adventure tale. This makes it perfect for homeschoolers and math-hungry kiddos. The fixed-layout format makes the ebook fun to read, while the drawings bring the story and math concepts to life.
