books about: measuring
Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Perfect for teaching measuring!
I used this book with my kindergarteners and they adored it! They already knew Penny from the book about maps so they were excited to listen to a Penny book in math. We used it as our starting point to get an overview on measurement and then went back to specific sections of the book to learn about each type of measurement. When Lisa used herself as a measuring tool, the students used their ...

Modern corporations collect vast amounts of data. Unfortunately, they too often mistake having massive amounts of data for having useful and actionable information. They are not the same thing.

Measuring Up: What Educational Testing Really Tells Us

By now this book is a classic. I consider it one of the most important books on the environment. Lomborg is an environmentalist who wants to do the maximum amount of good for the world. The "skeptical" part is really nothing more than the simple common sense notion that given the many potential different ways to do good, that we should look to get the most bang for the buck on our investment. ...
