The World Almanac® for Kids: More Comprehensive Math Content

The World Almanac for Kids’ math coverage has been expanded, with more comprehensive, age-appropriate content than ever. To reflect the newly added material and worksheets, the database’s Math Corner has been reorganized into five separate topic areas:

  • Expressions & Equations: Covering expressions, equations, exponents, and inequalities (greater than, less than, etc.).
  • The Four Operations: Covering number systems and addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, with a section on graphing coordinates.
  • Geometry: Covering shapes, area, and volume, with a section to practice graphing shapes.
  • Ratios & Proportions: Covering ratios and proportional relationships, with practice sheets covering fractions, decimals, and more.
  • Statistics & Probability: Covering mean, median, and mode, with sections to practice word problems with statistics, correlation coefficients, and more.

Each new math Topic features newly created worksheets for student practice; Fun Facts articles; specially selected videos, games, and puzzles to provide additional practice opportunities; and bullet biographies of key people in math and the sciences, including Pythagoras, Nicolaus Copernicus, Albert Einstein, Grace Hopper, Katherine Johnson, Fan R. K. Chung, Johannes Kepler, Ada Lovelace, Alan Turing, and more.

Educators can find answer keys for the new math Topics in the Teacher Resources section, as well as curriculum standards.
