Each of the five colorful larger-than-life books in the exhibit includes a math-related activity such as measuring, weighing, or sorting, along with labels to guide parents.

Featured books are Arthur’s Pet Business, The Doorbell Rang, The Quilt, Frog and Toad are Friends: A Lost Button, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

“Using familiar children’s books, the exhibit offers our community delightful experiences with simple math and demonstrates that math is learned naturally by the inventive, curious mind. Children ages two to seven years old and their parents or caregivers will enjoy the lively graphics of the exhibit and the related programs and activities,” said Terri Jordan, Curator of Exhibits.

Come and experience how parents’ involvement in learning can help foster a child’s natural curiosity and intuitive sense of math, and make a difference in school and later life. Go Figure! will be on exhibit through June 14th. Developed by Minnesota Children’s Museum in partnership with the American Library Association and supported by the National Science Foundation.
