You can probably guess that the normal elementary school math curriculum did not thrill him. Fortunately, early on, his kindergarten teacher lent me her copy of this book, and suggested that it might help him get started on understanding some higher math concepts, while still being age appropriate. The words "higher math" were not exactly music to the ears of a math phobe like me. But within a couple of weeks, after trying out a few games, I was hooked, and bought my own copy.
During the time he was in elementary school, I think we did at least 3/4 of the activities in the book, not because I thought he should, but because he wanted to. And, to my enormous surprise, so did I. The games and activities in this book are so intriguing that even I began to develop a sense of what it must feel like to really love math. (And, amazingly enough, I even got a little better at basic arithmetic.) Several of the games were so much fun, they became obsessions. We played them day after day.
My younger child, who recently finished kindergarten, doesn't remotely share her brother's love of numbers, but this year I dug out my old copy of the book to see if it might get her more interested. Sure enough, it worked. The games of logic and the games designed to develop rapid mental arithmetic skills that so fascinated her brother don't really interest her.Read more ›
The book is organized into different math topics (like Logical Reasoning, Numbers and Operations, Probability and Statistics) and each activity clearly states the age level that it is for and its purpose.
FAMILY MATH ends with instructions for setting up a Family Math class to teach parents and teachers how to use the material.
You must get this book!
A great buy! There are a few other books in the series, one for younger kids and one for older kids. I would definitely recommend this!
I bought mine used from a dealer on amazon, and received it quickly and in great shape for a great price. I'd check here first... although I check here first for most things.
Just FYI, I also love the Sir Cumference books by Cindy Neuschwander (available on amazon) for read aloud, fun, real world applications of math. The Life of Fred series is excellent too (also available on amazon).
I am not being paid or forced to promote amazon, but I do love the ease of purchasing online from a vendor I trust.
