Nonfiction Monday

Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by A Mom's Spare Time.

My selection is "How Astronauts Use Math"  by Mary Hense.

As students in grades 4-8 return to their math lessons, they will once again be asking that familiar question: "Why do I have to learn this?"

This title and the others in the "Math in the Real World" series help answer that question by providing examples of how math is utilized in a variety of careers from fighter pilots to fashion designers, and baseball managers to chefs. 

Each book explores a variety of math concepts and includes typical problems and their solutions.   A glossary, maps, photographs, and diagrams engage young readers while supporting their math curriculum.
