Go Figure!

GoFigureLogoGo Figure! transforms charming children’s books into a kids-sized world where children and adults delight in exploring math and books. The exhibit offers hands-on, play-filled experiences with simple math concepts, and areas for children and adults to read together. Each environment offers a unique setting in which the vital link between parent and child is supported without being prescriptive.

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. 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.

GoFigure1Come 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.

Developed by Minnesota Children’s Museum in partnership with the American Library Association and supported by the National Science Foundation.
