Product Description:

Edward Zaccaro takes a different approach to what is needed to be successful in the fields of math and science. He looks at catastrophes and disasters of the past and how they are linked to thinking errors. He sites the Challenger explosion as being avoidable had management listened to the mathematical data of the engineers. The ten things he refers to in this book are things we don't generally teach, but they are very important. They are: Math and Science Will Tell You the Truth, Your Mind Can be Fooled (Counterintuitive Thinking), Occam's Razor (the most basic or simple reason), Mistakes and Frustration are a Part of Learning and a Part of Life, It is Important to Keep an Open Mind, It is Important to Maintain a Healthy Skepticism, Don't Be Fooled by Statistics, You Must Know the Difference between Cause and Correlation, Ethical Decision Making and Bias is Everywhere. These aren't typical topics we think of as being associated to math and science! Zaccaro uses a comic strip to present the idea for each chapter. He then uses cartoon characters throughout the chapter as he makes his point. Each chapter ends with 3 discussion questions. Over 50 stories are included to show children the strong connections between mathematics and science and the real world. 242 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

Our oldest grandson scores very well in mathematics and this book should give him reasoning insight to embellish his natural gift.
