Geometry is as Easy as Pie

This colourful book looks like a picture book but is much more than that. It’s an introduction to geometry using pie as an example. The book opens with an explanation of what geometry is and how pie can help.

The first main section is about symmetry. After explaining it and showing the different types and how it relates to pie, you’ll find an actual pie recipe you can make with your children to keep the learning going in a fun way. There are recipes throughout the book.

Tessellations are explained and then a Samosa Hand Pie recipe is given. What a fun way to learn math. Other topics covered include: polygons, three dimensional shapes, perimeter, circumference, diameter, radius, pi, area, volume, parallel and perpendicular lines and angles. There is a nice glossary in the back too.

I love that the pages are glossy and the book is big enough to read to a group of children whether your own or a classroom.
