A writing assignment courtesy of Clifford Pickover

I’m on the road for work today and wasn’t able to do a face to face project with the boys before I left.  Instead, their assignment was to pick a page out of the one of two books we have from Clifford Pickover and write a short pieces about the page. The two books can be found here:

The Math Book

The Physics Book

My 6th grade son picked a page from the Math Book about ants:


and wrote this summary:

My 4th grader picked a page from the Physics Book about the greenhouse effect:



and wrote this summary:

We actually used to do something similar every day back when we were home schooling. I need to do more project like this 🙂
