About the Author:

LYNETTE LONG has an M.S. in mathematics and a Ph.D. in psychology. She has taught math and was a professor of education, specializing in mathematics education. She is the author of several children's math books, including Dazzling Division and Marvelous Multiplication, both published by Wiley.

From Booklist:

Reviewed with Long's Fabulous Fractions.

Gr. 2-6. What do a deck of cards, dominoes, a gift catalog, and a peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich have to do with math? They're part of ingenious games that teach children how to add and subtract fractions. In Fabulous Fractions the chapter "Dancing Decimals" demonstrates how to convert a decimal to a fraction; "Splitting the Deck" shows how to multiply a fraction by a whole number. In Measurement Mania , children use the five forms of measurement in games such as "Guess and Weigh," and "Spoons Abound." In "Body Parts" kids measure their smiles and big toes and find the circumference of their heads and necks. In "Ten Times" players use a stopwatch to determine how fast they can perform certain tasks. Both wonderful books include clear instructions, lists of necessary materials, and assorted tips. There are also special challenges for whiz kids. No math anxiety here--just lots of laughs and fun. Shelley Townsend Hudson
