An Exhibit Introducing Young Children to Simple Math through Familiar Books
Through children's literature, the traveling exhibition Go Figure! brings the exciting world of math and its everyday uses to children two to seven years old and their parents. The exhibition includes representations from many children's books, including Arthur's Pet Business by Marc Brown, The Doorbell Rang by Pat Hutchins, The Quilt by Ann Jonas, Frog and Toad are Friends: A Lost Button by Arnold Lobel, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears illustrated by James Marshall. Exhibit text is in both English and Spanish.
Go Figure! visited children's museums and libraries across the country from September 2000 to January 2003.
The exhibit was produced by the Minnesota Children's Museum (MCM), the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, and the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of ALA. Major funding for the exhibition is provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF) with additional support from Cargill and 3M.
