From download speeds to the amount of memory left on your hard drive, math is a big part of using computers. Understanding the math that is so important to computers can help you in the classroom and in future jobs. When you're playing computer games, understanding math can even help you have more fun. In Computer Math, you'll learn about how math powers the computers you use every day.
Cooking is a kind of science - you have to get the measurements right to make everything work. It takes math. In Culinary Math, you'll discover how numbers, ratios, and other math help make tasty foods you can cook yourself.
Science never stops-even when the experiment is complete. Now is the time to make sense of your data. This title teaches young scientists how to analyze, interpret, and communicate the results of their data.
Sharpen your pencils and put on your goggles! It's time to see science in action! This book helps readers hone their observation and recording skills during an experiment. Students will learn how to effectively collect and record data in a journal, as well as organizing data using graphs, charts, and diagrams.
Sometimes a hunch isn't enough. Learn how scientists make educated guesses called hypotheses to test their theories. A hypothesis is the foundation of the scientific method. Readers will learn how to construct a measurable and focused hypothesis to test in an experiment.
It is essential that scientists design a plan to ensure their experiments are conducted accurately and safely. Readers will learn how to gather materials, and create a step-by-step procedure to test their hypothesis. Readers will become familiar with controls and variables in a scientific setting.
Science engages a curious mind. Questions can come from practically anywhere. Readers will learn why scientists ask questions and how to develop meaningful questions to help guide their scientific experiments.
Science was meant to be shared with others. Scientists must now determine whether or not the data supports their hypothesis. This book illustrates fun and interesting ways in which to report your results, from a science fair demonstration to a written report. Readers are also encouraged to use their results as a springboard for further experimentation.
