Item description for Probably Pistachio (MathStart 2) by Stuart J. Murphy & Marsha Winborn...

Readers are introduced to the concept of probability in a story about a boy who has a day in which nothing goes right.

Publishers Description

Nothing goes right for Jack all day long. He can't find his favorite sneakers, he spills milk on his math homework, and worst of all, he gets tuna fish for lunch. Will things ever get better?

Readers will learn how to tell when something is certain, more likely, less likely, or impossible as Jack keeps hoping his streak of bad luck will break. Maybe, just maybe, pistachio ice cream for dessert will do the trick. But will it happen? Considering how Jack's day has been going, PROBABLY NOT

Reviews - What do customers think about Probably Pistachio (MathStart 2)?

probably probability  Mar 8, 2006
Stuart Murphy makes math fun. Probability is a hard concept for children even though they hear the word quite often. Math needs to be fun and relate to everyday life.
Probably Pistachio  Sep 9, 2005
A delightful book for introducing the concept of probability. It also provides jumping off places for many other classroom discussions.
Elementary probability  Oct 9, 2001
This is a great book to teach 2nd/3rd grade basic probability. Kids love the pictures and the story line is too cute! A great book to integrate language arts and math.
