How to get your kids to embrace math and science from a young age
By Michael Lee-USA TODAY SportsThe most important lesson a young child can learn is to love the classroom and love learning.
That’s the lesson the National Science Foundation and the Association for Mathematics Education (AME) are emphasizing with the release of their newest textbook for elementary school children.
The book, which will be available in early 2018, is the third in a series of books to guide the children of preschoolers and middle schoolers through the basics of math and scientific concepts, from simple multiplication tables to the theory of relativity.
The first two books were created in the 1980s, the AME said in a statement.
In addition to teaching kids how to solve problems in a simple way, the new books teach kids the basic concepts of physics and mathematics, and how to apply the concepts to everyday life.AME’s books for elementary and middle-school students are designed to provide students with the tools they need to understand basic concepts in science and math, while also helping them develop self-confidence, confidence and self-esteem, the organization said.
The books are based on research showing that kids who have been exposed to math, science and technology develop better mathematical and scientific skills than their peers without these subjects.
The new book for elementary students focuses on the basic principles of mathematics and physics in a clear, easy-to-understand manner, the statement said.
It includes topics such as number, prime factors, the number of dimensions, fundamental and applications of matrices, and algebraic geometry.
It is also a place where kids can get the latest math and physics information about topics like the universe and planets.
The new books are aimed at the ages of 2 to 5, and cover subjects from elementary school through 12th grade.AMEs first book, the Mathematics and Physics of Everyday Life series, is aimed at teachers, said Michael P. Brown, AME director of educational development.
It has over 3,500 titles, including popular math books and math content for preschoolers.
The second book, Math for the Common Good, has more than 500 titles, and is aimed more specifically at students who have already learned some math and are interested in studying it more.
