How Much is a Million? by David M Schwartz is one of many picture books I have on my bookshelf. It’s a great book to help students visualize what a million, billion, and trillion look like. A Million Dots by Andrew Clements is another one of my favorites. In the book, you will actually see ONE MILLION dots! Don’t believe me? You can count them yourself! Check to see if you have it in your school library!
I really thought I knew everything there was to know about a million, billion and trillion until I came across this Numberphile video. If you’re up for a challenge and making your brain stretch a little, then this Math Minute is for YOU!
