Product Description:

Library Media Connexion
"Wondering how to make math fun or how to encourage students to see math as an interesting subject. This book shows readers how math concepts can be learned using readily available items. Sections cover number patterns, lines, curves, and shapes. Introducing the concepts through hands-on activities conveys how mathematics is not as scary as many think. Chapters provide directions for the activities, along with other facts, and “words 2 know." Students will appreciate the fun, creative activities. Younger readers may have difficulty with some of the vocabulary. Bibliography. Glossary. Index.[Editor's Note: An additional activity and facts are available at the publisher's website.] Recommended."

CLEAR Review
"This book is full of hands-on math projects that are easy and fun. From interesting applications of numbers and counting, to geometric shapes and even experiments with bubbles, this book is sure to make math fun! It carefully explains each mathematical concept and includes vocabulary that reinforces the narrative. Then the concept is applied to a project or game, including fun facts. This book will get lots of attention and use for sure."

Magnus Wenninger Fr.
“ The book begins with the simplest notions of arithmetic and proceeds on to geometry and all kinds of higher math, with plenty of hands-on constructions and do-it-yourself suggestions.

David Bressoud, the DeWitt Wallace Professor of Mathematics, Macalester College; President, Mathematical Association of America
“…Very hands-on and easy to get into and draws students into an active engagement with mathematical ideas. Well done!"
