Graphing Math Problems in Menlo Park

The Great Graph Contest will leave your Menlo Park child with a burning desire to start asking questions, gathering data, and making graphs. Loreen Leedy’s, The Great Graph Contest is a cute and creative way to make graphing enjoyable for your kid. Have your children compete to make the best graphs that meet the three criteria (they must be mathematically accurate, neat, and creative). Obviously, it will end in a tie! Have them mix up the types of graphs they make just like they do in the story- pie charts, bar graphs, venn diagrams, etc.- there are many possibilities. The Great Graph Contest is better suited for younger children who are beginning to learn about graphs. This book is an ideal way to get your child to start practicing the graphing they are learning in school. I would recommend this book to all young kids in the Palo Alto and Menlo Park areas. Grab your kid a copy of The Great Graph Contest and watch with wonder as they begin to be more inquisitive and gather data to graph. Watch the work of a little mathematician in the making!
