    I love the line on the front cover: “Math is often taught as all scales and no music. This book contains the music!” Our math study is indeed lacking if we don’t see how it can be used to do wonderful things. The book’s first premise is that we learn through being challenged. Students, secondly, should be presented with these challenges in ways that intriguingly connect math and the real world. Each chapter introduces concepts and discusses the real world situation using a charming animal companion and an Einstein-like character drawn in black and white cartoons. The formula and key processes they discuss are highlighted on a drawn chalkboard. The 21 chapters each pull from a wide variety of topics: astronomy, problem solving, algebra, probability, ratios, perimeter and circumference, area, volume, analogies, speed, bases and more. First in each chapter come problem sets. You can easily select the difficulty of problems to specifically challenge your student. All material covers four different levels of difficulty: easy, somewhat challenging, challenging and very challenging. Each problem set has “warm up” exercises with one problem for each of the four different levels. After a few pages of problem sets come extended sets of questions at each level--a good handful (5 or so) of questions per level. Answers are provided in full and comprise 125 pages of the book. Pages are reproducible for classroom use. 398 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Most kids love playing card games. It seemed like Stephen used to invent new ways to play "War" just about every other week. This teaching resource from Scholastic capitalizes on that interest and uses it to help sharpen math skills. It contains rules and reproducibles for 25 games kids can play using a standard deck of cards. These games, designed for two or more players, practice basic operations, math facts, fractions, decimals, order of operations, and more. Examples of games include "Card Countdown," where players start at 100 and race to 0 by subtracting the value of drawn cards, and "Operation Rules," where players earn points by using drawn cards to make equations. ~ Anh

    Whether you are a math enthusiastic or math-phobic, this book is sure to engage your brain! Students will read about men and women with great math brains who changed our world, have the big ideas of math explained with clarity, and be given the opportunity to grow their math brain through the diverse activities found within the pages of the book. Each two-page layout is brightly colored and packed with informational tidbits, illustrations, and scattered activities covering topics such as number systems, sequences, calculation tips, 2-D and 3-D dimensions, shapes, magic squares, optical illusions, logic, infinity, and much more. An example from the Seeing Sequence page explains that "Math is the search for patterns - patterns of numbers, of shapes, of anything. Wherever there's any kind of pattern, there is usually something interesting going on, such as a meaning or a structure. A number sequence obeys a rule or pattern - the fun is in figuring out the pattern." Sample sequences are then given, and the activity provides step-by-step instructions for mathematical art, using sequences of squares to create a golden rectangle and spiral. Some additional math tools are required for the activities including a ruler, compass and tape measure. A glossary, index and answers are located in the back of the book. HC. 128 pgs. ~Deanne

    This book is designed to teach students tricks and tips on how to produce a better score on the math section of the SAT test. The content of the book is laid out so that concepts are explained in short, easily digestible bits immediately followed by several examples with detailed solutions. Topics covered include but are not limited to fractions, comparisons, roots, averages, number theory, percents, substitution, exponents, factoring, quadrics, perimeter, area, volume, and surface area. The book ends with 3 sets of practice tests that simulate the types of problems you are likely to see the day of the real test. Although the author's claim that the contents of this book will improve your score by 100 points or more may or not be accurate, I do believe mastery of the material presented in this book will certainly work to improve your overall math score. -Enh

    This book isn't what I expected. I thought I would be spending time looking through a book that offered help in everyday math concepts. A journal of ideas proven to be effective. Not so! This is a spiral bound book of 60 double-sided pieces of graph paper. The graph paper has ¼" squares and is perfect for doing math problems. Number alignment can be a real issue in math, and it's so important for accuracy. Have your student do math problems on the pages in this book and you will have a record of past work and concepts they have covered. This allows you and your student to use the book as a reference. Voila! You have created your own Math Journal! I know this is recommended for grades K-6, but it would be helpful at any age. Use it for working on fractions, place value, graphing, and so much more. ~ Donna

    I'm always shocked when someone tells me they dislike history and find it boring. I've always loved history because it's the magnificent story of our past – triumphs, tragedies, endurance, courage, heartbreak, justice, injustice, adventure, freedom, change – how could that be boring? This treasury of stories shows readers that American history isn't just about dates and facts, it's about the amazing events that have brought our country to where it is today. Starting with the establishment of the first city in 1564 and ending with the election of 2000, it includes 100 stories that show America's character and its history. All kinds of stories are included; well-known and obscure, funny and sad, admirable and disgraceful. The stories are easy-to-read narratives of true events or descriptions remarkable accomplishments. Each story is about 3-4 pages long and pages feature full-color illustrations. Stories are presented chronologically but there are notes following some of them that identify other stories that link together as well as suggestions for further reading. Help students see that history is full of captivating, motivating, heartbreaking, and interesting stories with this great treasury. By Jennifer Armstrong, 358 pgs, hc. ~ Rachel
