As young readers journey into the natural world, they discover that numbers, patterns, shapes — and much more! — can be found in everyday plants and animals. What if animals and plants knew math, just like us? Would spiders draw pictures in their webs? Would narwhals sort blocks of ice by shape? Would insects know what’s above and what’s below? In Shaping Up Summer, the final title in the Math in Nature series, nature comes to life to help children grasp concepts of geometry, symmetry, and spatial sense. This interactive, poetic, and artful picture book series is an enticing way to introduce math to young readers — they will laugh, use their imaginations, and learn through activities inspired by the books. Each book in the series covers a basic primary math curriculum strand — number sense and numeration; patterning, data management, and probability; measurement; geometry and spatial sense — to provide a fully rounded approach to primary math. Online teacher guides are also available for each book.
