Classifying objects according to attributes is a skill used throughout mathematics and science. Budding geologists Josh and Amy are crazy about collecting rocks. And with the help of local expert Dave, they learn how to sort rocks by different attributes: size, color, hardness and type. "We're kind of like rock detectives," says Amy. The story is filled with lots of rock facts.

Classifying objects according to attributes is a skill used throughout mathematics and science.
