Experiments, Puzzles, and Games Exploring MeasurementBook - 1995
How big would a bed have to be to accommodate the NBA's tallest player, Manute Bol? How does cold weather affect a baseball's performance? Questions like these make math fun, as Sandra Markle demonstrates in this collection of hands-on brainteasers and activities that involve measuring distances, size, weight, quantities and temperature. Measuring Up! is proof that knowing how to figure measurements is useful in everything we do. Full-color photos.
