About the Author:

Amy Bernstein studied gifted education at the University of Virginia, receiving her master's degree in education in 1989. Since that time, she has run gifted programs in Waltham and Pepperell, MA, and has taught and tutored gifted students. Ms. Bernstein was the first teacher in the state of Massachusetts to be certified in academically advanced education. She lives in Framingham, MA, with her husband and two daughters, her dog, her two cats, her lizard, and her turtle.

Review:

For teachers, this book offers ready-made, thoughtfully crafted, coherent learning plans for young students who are underchallenged by grade-level and uninspiring approaches to math. For parents, the book provides a meaningful solution to the comment, "I don't have anything good to do today." For eager young thinkers, the book creates a world in which likeable characters, imagination, words, and numbers combine to create a mental playground where learning happens just for the fun of it. --Carol Ann Tomlinson, Ed.D., Curry School of Education, University of Virginia

Time-Travel Math: An Advanced Geometry Adventure for Grades 4–5 offers a fine set of insights on geometry concepts and teaches how to use geometry to tackle fun math mysteries. From using math to draw human figures with the right proportions and creating works of art to learning about perimeter from ancient Egypt, this ties in history and math for teachers interested in creating unusual, involving learning plans for kids under-challenged by the usual math approaches. --Midwest Book Review - December 17, 2010
