Cut Down to Size at High Noon:
A Math Adventure

By Scott Sundby & Wayne Geehan

Set in the Old West in the fiction town of Cowlick, this fun book by Scott Sundby and Wayne Geehan tells the story of a big scale drawing showdown (with scissors instead of guns!) between tough- talking newcomer Buzzsaw Bart and the town's much loved barber. The goal of the showdown? To create the most magnificent hairdo.

While this may seem like a silly premise, it definitely works! Your students will be eager to see each newly scaled creation. Read this title at the start of a hands-on activity on scaling, and you will have a class of motivated workers!
