Math Alive: Nature Math

Dowdy, Penny. Math Alive: Nature Math. Marshall Cavendish: 2009. ISBN: 9780761432142.

This nonfiction book was all about math. The author used animals and plants from nature to help explain mathematical terms. The author also used photographs, diagrams, picture captions, and clipart. This book was very informational. It explained what Fibonacci's sequence is and showed pictures and diagrams to help people understand it. It also explains tessellations and uses a beehive to help explain what it is. Then, it tells the reader about weather and how to make predictions. I would recommend this book to elementary school children who enjoy learning about math.
