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 School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-Comprehensive hands-on introductions to their subjects. Each book consists of 40 activities, all of which include lists of the required materials, clear and complete procedures, and a black-and-white illustration. As the chapters progress, the activities and concepts become more complex and each one concludes with brain stretchers (related ideas to explore). In Fractions, the activities range from coloring pizzas on paper plates and cutting them out to cutting a sandwich into four equal parts six different ways. In Measurement, the activities range from using hands and feet to measure distance to making a sundial. Some of the projects are time consuming or require a solid background in mathematics. For example, in Measurement, readers are instructed to make a 12-inch by 12-inch grid with markers to create 144 boxes. Then they are directed to cut pieces of different colored paper into 144 1-inch squares. Students continue to create a mosaic and then determine the fractions/percentages of each color. While this is a useful project, many readers may be overwhelmed by all of the work. Nevertheless, these books provide valuable activities and games to help children learn about the concepts.
