Format: Paperback
This is a delightful engaging introduction to the world of mathematics, giving children and adults alike a glimpse of the wonderful adventures that lie beyond simple (and boring) drills. My 9 year old son, who doesn't like to read aloud, loves to say these poems with me. I would also recommend Math Talk to anyone looking for creative ways to expose math-phobes to the intriguing possibilities.
Poems for two voices are designed to be read aloud by two readers. Each reader reads from one of the two columns and lines written on the same line are said simultaneously.

This book is ok but not great. It's more of an idea starter, 'get you thinking', type of book. I agree with the other reviewers that, as a teacher, you can read a poem or two in class to get kids started on their own two voice math poems but don't rely on it for correct math or to be a resource for class. There is not enough varied content for that. It's more like a lesson plan that the author has expanded into a short book.

This book is wonderful for integrating math curriculum with reading fluency. Children don't even realize their learning because they are having so much fun sharing their poems with their classmates.

After completing some other Poetry in two-voice and four-voice formats, this book offers an opportunity to reach your math oriented students, and touch the cross-curricular boundary. I used this book and the poems within its pages as a surprise for my math team partner. We practiced on some days that my partner was out on taking some professional development, and performed the poems for him upon his return. This is one more way to hook students on poetry.

Format: Paperback
This book is a neat way to bring poetry into the math classroom. The math teacher on my team looked at it and chose some to use with our middle school students. (Unfortunately, she felt that some of the math was not correct.) If you're looking for great use of poetic language, this really isn't the book you want. It provides the basic definitions about different mathematic ideas in the form of two voice poems.
