I cannot say enough good things about this fine book. Its math problems are versatile and well designed. They strike a good balance between fun and serious math. Many questions are tricky and thought-provoking. My child is inspired by its interesting math problems and often wants more. I found similar content in Beestar (an excellent web site with free math practice at [...] What a blessing that your child is eager to learn and have fun! This book is priceless to me in this regard. I highly recommend it.

Teachers love this nice "sponge" activity which requires application of several skills or processes at once. No more having to think up a good math activity! Students enjoy working together to discover answers.

I use this book every day in my classroom. We use Saxon math and this complements the Problem of the Day very well. I have students complete one problem a day and it is great.

My 8th and 9th grade special education students loved these problems. Since I have to do a lot of reviewing with them, they enjoyed the challenge and different format of the problems. I would like more of the same for other topics.

An absolutely great book -- I use for my kids and they love it. I just wish it could be more complete so that it can be used for every pre-college student. I just found a free online resource (K12 Math Problem of the Day) It seemes to target every K12 student.

This book is a great warm-up or starter for your math class. They are really good higher order thinking questions that provide a great way to begin your class!

Format: Paperback
I bought this book to keep my son, who just finished fourth grade, interested in math and to allow him to maintain progress starting from what he had learned over the previous year. The book promised fun problems that would not take long to complete.

The problems in the book were essentially the same type of exercises as my son had been assigned in school over the prior two years, by which he had been bored. They were neither particularly interesting nor conceptually challenging. My son read a few and had no interest in doing them. I looked through the book to find two somewhat conceptually interesting exercises (which I still did not find all that interesting) and told my son he should do those. He did them within 30 seconds. That the was the last time he looked at the book.

In short the book did not help maintain my son's interest in math over the summer.

I bought this book for my 8 year old, who loves math problems. This book is great for taking along on short trips. The math problems range from simple to tricky and keep him occupied in a fun way. They really just take a few minutes to solve, so the kids don't get tired of it easily; yet make you think about numbers seriously. I have enjoyed doing some of the problems as well, so it is really fun for both kids and adults.
