Hey I made a math book!

I used iBooks Author to create an iBook.  It is designed to help children understand what length is, and to help them to build a collection of useful referents for centimetres - but it will work best if there is an adult beside the child encouraging, questioning and supporting  them through the exploration.

You may download it to your iPad (that is the only place you can use it right now) by clicking on the link below.  It is about 14 MB in size, so it may take a couple of minutes.  When it is finished downloading - open it in iBooks.

Share it with a child and share it with your friends!

  3. This trick is great and I have seen it done multiple ways, the way I enjoy doing it is with 4 rows of 4 and then using a magicians force at the end to complicate things.How apple pay works with passbook? It makes it much more interesting for the spectator plus it is much harder to work out.

  4. That's funny because when I first used soap nuts for my laundry I found it weird that the clothes didn't smell of anything! I started adding lavender oil, because it just didn't seem right without some smell (and lavender is supposed to deter moths etc, so that should be a good smell on clothes in storage). I haven't used a drier for 2 years though, being very lucky with a washing line on our verandah, we just haven't needed to plug in the drier since we moved to this house. drugstore.com coupon
