Review:

Looking for a way to turn your students into more active learners of math? Look no further! With this collection of fun reproducibles, written by a retired teacher (kindergarten through high school), math becomes meaningful--and manageable. Now, teachers who are plagued by the frequently asked question--"When will we ever use this in real life?"--can flip open the book to page 6, "Number User," and ask students to draw straight lines from the people and places in column A (electrician, parking lot, baseball player, bakery) to the numbers they use in column B (1-1/2 dozen, .294 average, 75 watts, 350 car spaces, etc.). The "Truth Sleuth" asks for help identifying multiplication "sentences" in a grid game. A "Worthy Earthling" helps kids figure out how much they would weigh on different planets by multiplying fractions. Educators can systematically make their way through the book, or simply turn to the table of contents to find the topic they wish to teach or reinforce. Topics include "Number Sense"; "Patterns and Relationships"; "Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division"; "Fractions, Decimals, and Percents"; "Geometry and Measurement"; "Probability"; "Charts and Graphs"; "Money"; and "Problem Solving." An answer key is provided.

Sure, you knew math could be this much fun, but your students will be very pleasantly surprised. Don't miss the many other creative, engaging math books from Scholastic, including Real-Life Math Problem Solving, Sports Math, and Fast & Fun Mental Math. --Emilie Coulter
