From the Inside Flap
At a time when the poor math performance of American school children has labeled us a "nation of underachievers," what can parents--often themselves daunted by the mysteries of mathematics--do to help their children? In "Games for Math, Peggy Kaye--teacher extraordinaire and author of the highly praised "Games for Reading--gives parents more than fifty marvelous and effective ways to help their children learn math by doing just what kids love best: playing games.
From the Back Cover
"Peggy Kaye's Games for Math is a lovely way to introduce your child to the magic of mathematics."
--Herbert Kohl, author of Thirty-Six Children and A Book of Puzzlements
"Games for Math is timely and much needed. Here are delightful and accessible games parents can actually use with their children."
--Marilyn Burns, author of Math for Smartypants and The I Hate Mathematics! Book
"This wise book can do much to help create a more math-literate generation. Games for Math is peppered with the wisdom of common sense, and is an invitation to get parents (and teachers) involved with children and math. A gem of a book."
--Allan Shedlin, Jr.,
