Each of the book's activities can help you teach students in grades 6 through 12 how to think with numbers, recognize relationships, and make connections between mathematical concepts. You pick the activity appropriate for their needs … encourage the use of a calculator … or provide further challenges with activities that have multiple answers.

Designed to be user friendly, all of the ready-to-use activities are organized into seven convenient sections and printed in a lay-flat format for ease of photocopying as many times as needed. Following is just a sample of the activities you???ll find in each section:

  • WHOLE NUMBERS: Includes 23 activities focusing on Operations, Place Value, Factors, Primes and Composites, Attributes of Numbers, Exponents, Types of Numbers, Patterns, and more.
  • FRACTIONS, DECIMALS, AND PERCENTS: Offers 30 activities that explore topics such as Greatest Common Factor and Lowest Common Denominator, Mixed and Complex Fractions, Rounding Decimals, Money and Change, Scientific Notation, Ratios, Proportions, Operations with Percents, and more.
  • GEOMETRY: Includes 26 games and activities that teach lessons about Parallel and Perpendicular Lines, Angles, Types of Quadrilaterals, Congruent and Similar Figures, Circles, Pythagorean Theorem, Line and Rotational Symmetry, Euler's Formula, and more.
  • MEASUREMENT: Presents 30 math activities that highlight Customary and Metric Measures, Computation with Time, Equivalent Measures, Fahrenheit and Celsius Scales, Perimeter and Circumference, Areas of Polygons and Circles, Volume and Surface Area, and more.
  • ALGEBRA: Includes 35 activities focusing on all operations with Integers, Functions, Equations, Radicals, Quadratic Functions and Equations, Linear Inequalities, and more.

I like this book and highly recommend anything by the Muschla's. But this is a book of worksheets, not games. It does contain entertaining and challenging worksheets that are useful in the classroom. I more often will use their Algebra Teacher's Activity Kit or the Geometry Teacher's Activity Kit.

These are not "games" like you might imagine. They are simply interesting math problems. It's a great resource!

While the title is misleading, I found this book a good way to get additional practice in my middle school math classes. The worksheets offer some "puzzle" type problems and "real world" word problems. Students like the worksheets and the format of them doesn't make it feel like everything is on top of each other like worksheets often do.

A good supplement to any classroom

I purchased for my girlfriend during her student teaching. She was able to use alot of the information in this book to bring the fun back to math. It helped her motivate the students.

I certainly read enough reviews to know I was not ordering a book of math games, but I thought it would be a book of interesting, motivating puzzles and challenges. There are a few of those in that book, but for the most part it is simply a book of practice worksheets on a variety of topics. Some of the worksheets have interesting twists, and a few more have an answer bank that will reveal an acrostic such as "All your answers are correct," but too often a worksheet is simply a list of problems to solve.

I would call none of these worksheets games, and less than a third of them puzzles.

As previous reviewers have noted, this is a book of worksheets, not games. Those hoping for math games should look elsewhere, such as Family Math : The Middle School Years, Algebraic Reasoning and Number Sense. That being said, this is a good book to use for extra practice and/or review of skills. It is well organized, so it is easy to find a worksheet on, for instance, the order of operations. I use it frequently in my tutoring of jr. high and high school students, a group for which it is often difficult to find materials.
