Excerp of review by Carolyn Phelan


This is a book for nonbelievers of all ages. It was written especially for kids who have been convinced that mathematics is (1) impossible, (2) for those smart kids who can't play baseball, and (3) no fun anyhow. This book will also do wonders for TEACHERS, parents, or any adult who hates math. Here you will find several hundred mathematical events, gags, magic tricks and experiments. Don't miss this one!

The Math Teacher's BOOK OF LISTS A fantastic info. source for math teachers in any grade. Reviewer: A reader from Columbia, SC


Without a doubt, this is the best elementary book on math that we have ever seen! It changed the entire way we looked at the subject of math. It should be required reading for all teachers and parents who care about inspiring a love for learning math. Get it. You'll be glad you did. 

Scott Flansburg's heartfelt belief is that there are no "mathematical illiterates," just people who have not learned how to make math work for them. But millions of otherwise successful adults are afraid to balance their checkbooks and don't know how to figure interest on savings or credit. Millions of students dread their math classes and live in fear of the math section of the SAT. But, as Scott Flansburg demonstrates, anyone can put these phobias to rest and deal with essential everyday mathematical calculations with confidence. 

Packed with hundreds of games, exercises, and tricks, this innovative book by the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Math Magic" is the perfect device for parents who want to transform their mathphobic children into math wizards. Line art throughout. 

Wow do we ever love this one. It is simply jammed packed with easy, and some sophisticated, tricks for doing math quickly. The thing we really like is that each lesson gives you practice problems that you can do and time yourself. The answers are all in the back. There is something here for everyone. 

Triad Optical Illusions and How to Design Them A triad is something that can be drawn on a 2 dimensional surface but can not be constructed in the third dimension. It's a sort of visual paradox, and as such, will intrigue the analytical mathematician in you with the beauty of illusion. This book explains how to construct them and offers 32 reproducable plates.
