|Lessons, news, articles, answers from experts, a glossary, and other science resources for young people. See especially Math in Child Care, which organizes suggestions for developing children's mathematical foundations into topics such as one-to-one correspondence and counting; creating patterns and arranging objects in order; subtraction and addition; shapes and spatial relations; and matching, classifying and measuring. With particular emphasis in the agricultural sciences, eXtension also offers resources on topics ranging from disaster preparedness to farms, from diversity across higher education to wood energy, from pest management to personal finance, and from food safety to gardens, lawns, and landscapes. The result of a partnership of more than 70 land-grant universities found in every state and territory throughout the United States, eXtension "provides objective and research-based information and learning opportunities that help people improve their lives."|
