Description

King Arthur was a good ruler, but in this math adventure he needs a good ruler. Geometry is explained with humor in SIR CUMFERENCE AND THE FIRST ROUND TABLE, making it fun and accessible for beginners. What would you do if the neighboring kingdom were threatening war? Naturally, you'd call your strongest and bravest knights together to come up with a solution. But when your conference table causes more problems than the threat of your enemy, you need expert help. Enter Sir Cumference, his wife Lady Di of Ameter, and their son Radius. With the help of the carpenter, Geo of Metry, this sharp-minded team designs the perfect table conducive to discussing the perfect peace plan. Thanks to Sir Cumference, even the most hesitant will be romancing math.

Customer reviews

King Arthur and his knights can't fit at their table properly so Sir Cumference goes about trying various table shapes to solve the porblem. Miss 10 groaned at the thought of reading a math adventure but was soon by m side whilst I read it to Miss 8. Since then both girls have read this a couple of times both independantly and enjoyed it. It was a cute story wiht great illustrations and best of all both my children now recall what a radius, circumference and diameter is. Subliminal learning at it's best. Will be purchasing the remainder of this series. For the ages 6 and up.show more
