Why Do Students Often Have Trouble Counting Beyond 100? And what we can do to help them with this hurdle. Certainly, when you think about mathematics, you think about numbers. When you think about learning mathematics, you might have great thoughts of the quest to tackle problems that unlock applicable solutions. Ask any lower elementary student to count aloud for you and chances are they will stop counting at 100. It doesn't matter if you ask them to count by 1s or to skip-count by 5s or 10s, 100 forms a natural stopping point. The problem arises when you ask young students to go further. "What comes next?" I ask my young math students. Many students are unsure about counting beyond 100, especially if I ask them to write the numbers on paper.100-a number not too small, not too large, but just right to challenge students without intimidating them. It's used in myriad ways within the problems: as an exponent, product, area, or perimeter; a constant in an equation; the number of items in a series or sequence; or as a physical value, such as a stack of 100 coins, a deck with 100 cards, or a jug that holds 100 ounces. There is something magical about the number 100, and these problems aim to capture some of that magic. But no matter how 100 is used, each problem is meant to spark curiosity and motivate students (and their teachers) to want to solve it.

If you are ready to challenge your mind and prove to everyone that you are the king of tigers knowledge, then pick up this book and prepare for the ultimate trivia experience. Test your fact knowledge as you look at some of the most captivating facts about tigers. Do you know that? Tigers are the biggest cats in the world. Tigers are an endangered species; only about 5,000 to 7,400 tigers are left in the wild. There are a greater number of tigers in captivity in the US alone than there are wild tigers left on earth. Tigers prefer to hunt large prey by ambush. If you look at a tiger, it is less likely to attack, as it has lost the element of surprise. In some locations in India, people traditionally wear a mask on the back of their head while walking through forests to prevent tigers from pouncing from behind. Tigers are very adaptable in their hunting techniques. Although they prefer to kill by attacking the neck, they do not do so when they recognize it is inappropriate. A large crocodile might bite down on a swimming tiger, which will immediately blind the reptile by striking it in the eyes. A crocodile’s neck is covered with thick amored skin, so the tiger will instead flip the animal over and eviscerate its soft belly. Siberian tigers are the heaviest subspecies at 500 or more pounds (225 kg), with males heavier than females. The lightest subspecies is the Sumatran; males weigh about 250 pounds (110 kg) and females around 200 pounds (90 kg). Tiger stripes are like human fingerprints; no two tigers have the same pattern of stripes. Tiger cubs are born blind and weigh only about 2 to 3 pounds (1 kg), depending on the subspecies. They live on milk for 6-8 weeks before the female begins taking them to kills to feed. Tigers have fully developed canines by 16 months of age, but they do not begin making their own kills until about 18 months of age. To show happiness, tigers squint or close their eyes. This is because losing vision lowers defense, so tigers (and many other cats) only purposefully do so when they feel comfortable and safe. Tigers can sprint at over 60km/h for short distances. As you read this book over and over to your child it won't be long before they are the ones pointing to the picture and telling you what it is. The author Katy Gleit wrote this book for her own two grandchildren Dani and Deia: In "Tigers: 100 Illustrated Fun Facts " your children are given a well-selected knowledge along with entertaining information about these amazing creatures.

This picture book is a great teaching tool for your little one and for you. It is like illustrated encyclopedia of volcanoes for every kid. The pictures are clear and the colors are nice. If you are ready to challenge your mind and prove to everyone that you are the king of volcanoes knowledge, then pick up this book and prepare for the ultimate trivia experience. Test your fact knowledge as you look at some of the most captivating facts about volcanoes. Do you know that? Japan has 10% of the world’s active volcanoes. Iceland is made up almost entirely of volcanic rocks like those found on the ocean floor. It gradually built up above sea level through intense and prolonged eruptions. In August 1986, a cloud mixture of carbon dioxide and water rose from Lake Nyos, a crater lake in Cameroon (western Africa). The heavy gas cloud flowed downhill and gathered in the valleys, asphyxiating 1,700 people and 3,500 livestock living in the villages below. An acid lake in the crater of Kawah-Idjen in Indonesia absorbs gases rising from the volcano, creating a lake so toxic it can burn through human flesh in minutes Magma is Latin for “dregs of ointment,” which derives from the Proto Indo-European mag meaning “kneading.” The term “magma” in its geological sense as molten rock was first used in 1865. The earliest known picture of a volcano is the nearly 8,000-year-old wall painting of an eruption of Hasan Dag volcano in Turkey. The houses of a town, Çatalhöyük, can be seen at the mountain’s base. In Japan, “baths” in warm volcanic sand are believed to cure many illnesses. The largest volcano found in the solar system is Olympus Mons on Mars, though it is now extinct. Venus may have at one time produced more volcanoes than any other planet in our solar system, though they are all now extinct. While no other planet besides Earth shows active volcanoes, Io, one of Jupiter’s moons, shows volcanoes that are erupting. The most lava ever recorded from a single eruption was the 1783 Laki eruption in Iceland. Though there was no single big explosion, this eruption killed one fourth of Iceland’s population by producing poisonous gases and clouds of ash that resulted in widespread crop failure and starvation.

Birds descended from a type of dinosaurs known as theropods. Tyrannosaurus lived throughout what is now western North America 67 to 65.5 million years ago. Tyrannosaurus was a carnivore with a massive skull balanced by a long, heavy tail. Although other theropods rivaled or exceeded Tyrannosaurus rex in size, it was the largest known tyrannosaurid and one of the largest known land predators, the most complete specimen measuring up to 12.3 m (40 ft) in length, up to 4 meters (13 ft) tall at the hips, and up to 6.8 metric tons in weight.

This picture book is a great teaching tool for your little one and for you. It is like illustrated encyclopedia of planets for every kid. The pictures are clear and the colors are nice. If you are ready to challenge your mind and prove to everyone that you are the king of planets knowledge, then pick up this book and prepare for the ultimate trivia experience. Test your fact knowledge as you look at some of the most captivating facts about planets of our Sun's System. Do you know that? The nine planets are the most important members of the Sun's System. In order of distance from the Sun, they are: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Plato. Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, are small rocky bodies. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are giants, made up mainly of gas. Pluto is tiny ball of rock and ice. The Sun is nearly ten times bigger across than Jupiter, and it could swallow more than a million Earths. Earth is bigger than four of the planets - nearby Venus, Mars and Mercury, and tiny distant Pluto. Jupiter is by far the largest of the planets and has more mass than all the other planets put together. Jupiter measure nearly 143 000 kilometers across, which is 11 times bigger than Earth. Even though Jupiter is so big, it takes less than 10 hours for it to spin round once: this means that its surface is spinning round at s speed of 45 000 km an hour. This is 30 times faster than Earth spins. Once it was thought that Saturn was the only planet that had rings around it because they were the only ones that can be seen through a telescope. Close-up photographs taken by the Voyager space probes have shown that the other three gas giants - Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune - have rings too, but their rings are much thinner, narrower and darker than Saturn's. Ancient astronomers could only see five planets in the night sky until 1781. In this year was built a telescope powerful enough to spot Uranus. Uranus was the first of three "new" planets to be discovered after 1781. Neptune was discovered in 1846. Pluto was discovered in 1930. Saturn is surrounded by a set of bright, shining rings and when you look at the planet though a telescope it is very beautiful. Saturn is the lightest (last dense) of the planets. It is lighter even than water - if you could place it in a huge bowl of water, it would float. Pluto travels more than 7000 million kilometers away from the Sun. It takes nearly 248 Earth years to circle the Sun once. Mercury is the planet closest to the Sun. Mercury is the fastest-moving planet, whizzing round the Sun in just 88 days. Being close to the Sun, Mercury gets extremely hot. As you read this book over and over to your child it won't be long before they are the ones pointing to the picture and telling you what it is.

The skull of a Tyrannosaurus Rex alone measured up to 1.5m (5ft) long. They weighed 8 tons (more than a garbage truck). Tyrannosaurus was cannibalistic. The calculations suggested that adult T. Rex could have generated from 35000 to 57000 newtons of force in the back teeth, or the equivalent of three times the force estimated for a great white shark, 15 times the force of an African lion, 3 1/2 times the force of an Australian saltwater crocodile and around 7 times the estimated force for Allosaurus. The average Tyrannosaurus Rex lived about 30 years. The first, fragmentary fossils of Tyrannosaurus Rex were discovered by the famous paleontologist Edward Drinker Cope in South Dakota in 1892.

Rex, it was larger than most other dinosaurs. T. rex's brain was larger than the human brain, but the cerebrum (the part of the brain that we use to think) was tiny. T. Rex went extinct during the K-T mass extinction, about 65 million years ago.
