We'll look at the street for things like why the road is black, why do we need the signal light, why we are driving on the right ... etc.<br /><br />I usually teach my kids a totally new math concept (other than what they learn from school) about every 3 months. I also teach them on an as-needed basis when their school teacher doesn't explain the concepts well enough.<br /><br />I also get them appreciate the power of Math as well as abstract thinking. Math model can help them to see through things and recognize that many different things (like species classification, company structure, family history, government structure ... etc) are all based on a "tree" concept. Once they understand the properties of a trees, everything looks familiar.<br /><br />I mean just the knowledge is not that important. The important skills is to be able to notice differences and similarities among different things and be able to build a few models around them.<br /><br />I haven't used any specific book but I also have another blog that talks about some good sites.<br /><br />http://horicky.blogspot.com/2009/01/kids-learning-resources.htmlRicky Hohttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03793674536997651667noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7994087232040033267.post-71413655165166585322009-10-05T12:40:02.113-07:002009-10-05T12:40:02.113-07:00This is quite a list.

Any books recommend?<br /><br />PS I found your blog via your "CouchDB Implementation" post. It is a great read. Clear and concise. The charts and graphs really help.Danielhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03401488018953572215noreply@blogger.com
