    One thought on “Sir Cumference and the Sword in the Cone”

    1. The character names alone- "sir cumference" "lady di ameter" and their son "radius" are HILARIOUS! This truly is an adventure in math and other elementary school children will love this! It makes math fun to read a story to figure out something like this, with three dimensional shapes and formulas. I also like that the author explains the real life connection to math (the history/explanation of the formula of this story) on the last page. The story is kind of hard to follow along with unless you [...]

    3. Another marvelous math adventure with castles and swords, oh my! This time, covering cones, diatmeter, Euler's law of the 'two's test', vertices and more. We can't get enough of these fun, memorable and educational adventures.

    4. Not much math in this one. It's a bit bland, funny mostly because of math puns rather than anything 'right' with the plot, setting or characters.

    5. This was a great Goodwill find! Will share with my math specialist, but will also share with my students! It is pretty wordy, and a long story for a math lesson my (elementary) students probably won't need to apply, but definitely could figure out! Would be a fun activity building up to certain points of the story, then let them play around a bit. (Can give them shapes and let them count faces, edges, etc. and do the math. Let them discover Euler's Law! Can also let them play around with heights [...]

    6. We discovered these books about Sir Cumference on the "Tumblebooks" online audiobook site (tumblebooks), which is available for free as one of the online resources from our local library. Our girls really enjoyed watching them read aloud. Although I think the math concepts regarding geometry are a little more difficult to understand for children in grades K-2, I think it was a valuable way to introduce the concepts. Because the story itself is fun, it makes the educational focus of the book less [...]

    7. Vertex and Radius use the clues to find a hidden sword. There is word play and adventure, as well as geometry on the way.Readers are introduced to Euler's Law, or the two's test for geometrical solids. Anytime the number of faces on a geometric sold is added to the number of its points (vertices) and then subtracted from the number of edges, the answer will always be two. (note that this works for any polyhedron, straight-sided, solid shape).I think this book would be most meaningful for readers [...]

    8. Best for kids ages 6 and up.Early Literacy Skills: Vocabulary, Narrative SkillsFrom cover:Sir Cumference is back and he's not alone, helping Sir Vertex seek the sword in the cone.King Artur has hidden his sword, Edgecalibur. The knight who finds it will be the next king. Can Sir Cumference and Lady Di point Vertex in the right direction? Will Vertex's sharp thinking give him the edge?Another math adventure with Sir Cumference and his family with this nicely illustrated story about shapes.

    9. Once again, this series is amazing to introduce mathematical terms to elementary students. As I read this book it helped to jog my memory about several math concepts I'd honestly forgot! This could be a great activating strategy in discussing shapes (cones in this case) and understanding the characteristics of 3-D shapes. Students could build their own cities using 3-D shapes the class is learning about (i.e. cubes, cones, spheres, etc). Fun book!!

    10. A fun picture book that takes an informational topic and turns it into an adventure. In this book, Sir Cumference must use his knowledge of geometric shapes to find King Arthur's sword, Edgecalibur. This book presents information about the "two's test" for geometric solids using the number of faces, edges, and vertices. This book presents mathematical information in a nonthreatening way. It also has beautiful illustrations.

    11. I love love love this book! It incorporates mathematics into a fairy tale. The names of characters are names that represent academic language used in mathematics and the entire story refers to shapes and how they are used around us. Great for getting students to think about mathematics all around them.

    12. Maybe starting off reading the 6th math adventure in the Sir Cumference series wasn't the best place begin. I appreciated the use of math terms such as: face, points, edges, cylinder and more; but found the math solving pace to be faster than most readers would be able to follow. This would be fun book to create a lesson around for any geometry class though.

    13. This whole book is just full of wonderful math puns. I love King Arthur stories, anything with knights really, and the story was fun to read and watch the events unfold. It also nicely incorporated math and made math interesting and engaging. I know lots of kids have a hard time keeping focus when it comes to math, so this story is a great way for kids to enjoy math.

    14. I love these funny and creative books about math! This one specifically talks about volume of prisms. I would definitely use this book while teaching about these concepts. I could also talk about crafting techniques in writing because these Sir Cumference books use a lot of fun word play. The author does a great job of also relating math to real life.

    15. Weird paving aside (you'll see), this is a fun little story to illustrate Euler's Law, which states that if you add the number of faces on a geometric solid to the number of its points (vertices) and then subtract the number of its edges, the answer will always be two. This book shows that this law works for any STRAIGHT-Sided solid shape. It does not apply to cones and cylinders.

    16. This book is a clever, engaging way to introduce (or remind) students about shapes and geometry. I would definitely use this as a mini-lesson to start off a rotation of centers. One of the centers could use 3D shapes to build a city. Having the students record what shapes they used is a great way to assess their knowledge and understanding.

    17. This book is about Radius and Vertex. In the story Sir Cumference and Lady Di point Vertex send out a presidental message. The first knoght that finds the sword will be the next king. The two knights go on a jounry to find the sword. The story shows them how they used measurements and shapes to find the swords. This book would be used for an older group of children.

    18. Same clever humor, but this one didn't seem to teach anything useful for practical application. It showed us that "if you add the number of faces on a geometric solid to the number of its points (vertices) and then subtract the number of its edges, the answer will always be two. It works for any polyhedron" Yeah, but who cares?

    19. Another adventure of Sir Cumference, this book gives an introduction to three-dimensional solids from nets to the connections between bases and heights of cones. In this one, Vertex the cousin of Radius mimics the King Arthur story by finding the sword Edgecalibur hidden not in a stone, but a cone. Fun!

    20. Story goes over solid figures and the nets that make them. The number of faces, edges, and points are described. Fun way to teach Euler's Law. Takes place during medieval times.6th Grade Common Core Standards:Geometry6.G.4*Available at Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Libraries*

    21. A delightful book to help introduce geometry to students. This book retells the story "The Sword in the Stone". In the story the students will follow Sir Cumference and Lady Di of Ameter as their son Radius and his friend Vertex set out to find Edgecalibur.

    22. Sir Cumference goes on adventure to find the sword Edgecalibur. After being read Sir Cumference and the First round I thought that these books are a really good way for students to remember definitions in math. The series is really cute.

    23. If you're math allergic like me, then this is the only way to learn math, read a cool story and have fun! These stories are very clever and they teach while entertaining kids. I and my children haven't read all of Neuschwander's books , but we will.

    24. fun and clever! The stories in this series put kids in the middle of a math adventure and introduce concepts that help them to figure out the solution to the scenario in the story. My boys love knights so this was extra fun for them.

    25. Sir Cumference books are GREAT books to read aloud to introduce any math lesson. They make real-life connections to math concepts and portray math in a positive light.

    26. Names are clever. Notes at the end are useful. Concept is best understood by students who already 'get it.' Too absurd for my liking.

    27. This is a really cute way to introduce geometric solids. My kids were entranced by the story and learned some math terms along the way. :)
