Description


There is no place on Earth like the Galápagos Islands. Made of about twenty main islands, they are like a living museum. Unusual animals and diverse plants make this archipelago their home. Currents from three oceans converge there. Scientists say this helps to create the variety of sea life that lives on the islands. Learn about these fascinating islands as you practice working with decimals! This nonfiction reader seamlessly integrates the teaching of math and reading, and uses real-world examples to teach math concepts. Text features include images, a glossary, an index, captions, and a table of contents to build students' vocabulary and reading comprehension skills as they interact with the text. The rigorous practice problems, math charts and diagrams, and sidebars extend learning and provide multiple opportunities for students to practice what they have learned. Math Talk provides an in-depth problem-solving experience.

About the Author


Dona does not know which is more fun-learning about the world through science, or writing books for children that tell all about it. She is glad she does not have to decide and can do both!
