Very informative!

In this book, Adler tells the readers all about the mathematical properties of a circle and the difference between a circle and a sphere. Students learn how to determine the radius, diameter, pi, and other formulas that go with a circle in terms that a young reader can understand. I rated this book 5 stars for its amazing content! Readers are given wonderful pictures of things that are circles and also how to measure circles. Each time the author tells how to measure pi, the radius, the diameter [...]

This book is all about circles, both two-dimensional and three-dimensional. It starts off simpler, discussing the radius and the diameter of a circle, and progressively talks about harder material such as tangent, circumference, and the formula for pi and for area. I enjoyed this book because it was very informative, but the colors in the book really created a more fun atmosphere for the reader, so the reader was not super overwhelmed with too many words and information.This book could be used i [...]

"Circles" by David A. Adler teaches young children all about the circles attributes. It talk about diameter, radius, circumference, and much more. It also teaches the children how to find these attributes and measure them. This is a great book for children learning about shapes and their attributes. It would be great to read this to the class, and measure the attributes all together.

Excellent book to practically understand all things circle : diameter, radius, circumference, chords, segments, sectors, arcs and pi. Short practice exercises included to solidify the learning. Very good for honing in on just circles.

Brilliant! Radius, diameter, pi, circumferenceeverything you every needed to know about how to measure a circle. Explained in terms that even an adult can understand!

This book is part of a series that teaches kids all sorts of complicated subjects in a way that is easy to understand. There is simpler language that is accompanied by illustrations that allow kids to have fun while they learn. Kids are taught the fundamental properties of circles and couples fun activities that facilitates active learning. Terms are clearly explained through thoughtful and clear definitions and pictures, which will allow a deepen of learning and will engage all sorts of learner [...]

I really like Math. This book takes a geometrical look at circles. The author does a great job explaining all the geometry terms, such as the differences in spheres, cones, and cylinders. This would be a great teaching tool for all grades.

Geometry Picture Book – This book provides many classroom applications for grades 3-12. Adler and Miller do an excellent job of explaining circles and the specific vocabulary that gives the reader an understanding of the shape. The information begins with an overview of circular three dimensional figures: sphere (ball & earth), a cylinder, a cone; in addition to ovals and spirals. The author explores concepts of a circle: width, length, center, point, symmetry, diameter, radius, minor sect [...]

How I wish I had been able to use this book when I was completely baffled by geometry back in high school! In its pages, David Adler demystifies geometric concepts such as area, radius, and diameter in simple terms and with activities that demonstrate the concepts he has introduced. This hands-on approach is quite effective, especially since he incorporates real world examples of circles, spheres, cones, and cylinders, among others. The last pages list many useful objects that are circles. As he [...]

David Adler has the happy ability to clearly explain math topics. In this book he explores the concept of circles. He defines circles, and shows things that are circular, but are not actually circles--cones, cylinders, spheres. Then he dives deeply into circles themselves and defines all of the elements any geometry teacher would want--radius, circumference, diameter, sectors, chords, segments, arvcs, and tangents. This is all accompanied by hands-on activities that clearly illustrate each point [...]

A bit more advanced than the cover would have you believe - but very, very informative. The book covers the definition of a circle (and compares/contrasts with spheres, cones, ovals, and more) as well as all the major geometric components. It explains radius and diameter, but also chords and arcs in simple terms and gives lots of examples and even some exercises. It also covers circumference and area and gives a quick crash course on pi.An excellent book for an early grade school student.

This is great! It's pretty advanced math for a picture book, but I don't think there's a single wasted word. Adler gets right to the point and very effectively illustrates those points. I learned about chords, which I don't remember ever learning about!

Great text for all math classrooms that cover shapes and geometry.

Belongs in nonfiction collections.

An engaging and informative introduction.

I love geometry and this book is a great first start for the young mathematician.

This book about circles begins by explaining things that are round - like spheres, cylinders, cones and spirals - before defining and explaining circles.
