You know how standardized tests project that there is only one answer on a multiple choice question even if than one of the choices seem plausible Yeah, well this book spits in the face of that and I love it.

Math should be playful Divergent thinking is a skill that crosses disciplines, and this book is a great introduction There are four shapes that share both commonalities and differences, and readers are encouraged to explain their thinking, regardless of the one they select Bravo, Christopher Disclaimer The author is one of my mathematical heroes.

Bookaday 19 Love the open endedness of this book, asking the reader to pick the one that doesn t belong, and then to justify the answer The author note at the end honors all sorts of math vocabulary including smooshed, dented, curvy, and cupcake Can t wait to use this with PreK and their shapes unit, or even older students talking sides, angles, and other properties.

I thought I would never have a favorite children s nonfiction book I lied I don t even like math but iIreally love this book It encourages kids to expand on the notions of what adults might think to be obvious and shows the reader how all ideas are important and valued It also just lets kids get really creative and helps them verbalize their reasoning.

This is a perfect book for kids learning geometry Each page presents 4 shapes and asks which one doesn t belong The best part is you can make a case for any of the shapes based on different features sides, edges, size, etc This lets kids really think about and play with mathematical ideas I would definitely use this with my 3rd graders.

Do NOT read this book if you are a Type A, perfectionist, who needs to have a clear cut, precise, CORRECT, answer to every problem in life, and you need to SOLVE things This will drive you NUTS.Math Schmath I m just saying.

Asks readers to support their answers for which shape doesn t belong.

A great way to get people thinking about similarities and differences.

Fantastic book to prompt discussion on the ideas of different and same.

Interesting concept I can see this working well with 1st or 2nd graders I m not sure my preschooler would get ithe still likes one clear cut answer.
