Editorial Reviews

Review

"It revolutionized our homeschool this year."
--Caitlin Fitzpatrick Curley, My-Little-Poppies.com
 
Combined with all the linked resources, this book is going to transform how I teach my kids maths. No more dabbling in "real maths" but then running back to the workbooks when anxiety strikes -- with this approach I can teach my kids to think like mathematicians without worrying about leaving gaps. ... I knew the well-travelled road (maths curricula) wasn't for us, but I lacked confidence in my ability to guide my children through uncharted territory. Let's Play Math is the map and the guidebook I've been looking for. With it in my hand I can't wait to take my children by the hand and head off to explore the wonderful world of maths.
-- Lucinda Leo, NavigatingByJoy.com

A beautiful book that explains the "why" and "how" of teaching math ... well researched, well annotated, and includes loads of activities that you can try with kids K-12 at home. ... I have to say that there were so many parts of this book that I highlighted that I really gave my Kindle a workout! ... I'm going to print up all of the talking points and post them in our kitchen so that my husband and I will have a list of questions to prompt our son's thinking.
-- Jennifer Bardsley, TeachingMyBabyToRead.com

Let's Play Math could be the very introduction a young family needs as they contemplate the first few years of homeschooling. ... It could be a fantastic book for a family with a child that's struggling (in homeschool or otherwise) with math. ... This book would be perfect for a parent who has always struggled with inadequacies in math or for someone like me, who always did just fine in math but never understood the claims of math's beauty or fascination. I find myself excited to explore some of the resources the author has gathered together for my own growth and new challenges.
-- Kansas Mom, OurHomeOnTheRange.blogspot.com

Denise Gaskins provides a way of seeing maths that opens out a whole new world, both for those like me who enjoyed a more traditional approach and those like my daughter who hated it. ... I love the ideas for verbal games and chats you can have any time, like guess the number -- "Add half of me to myself and you get six -- what am I?" We play these in the car, or at the table -- and the most important rule is always let your kids ask the questions too!
--Miranda Jubb, Amazon UK reader

From the Author

As a young parent and newbie homeschooler, I tried to fit my children's education into the only model of school I knew. Textbooks, daily schedules, and slogging through one tedious workbook after another made education seem boring, when it ought to be a lifelong adventure. As my children grew, I noticed how much learning happened outside of "school" time, through library books or life experiences. We moved to a more relaxed, eclectic mentoring style. We discovered that even a math textbook can be fun when used as a source of puzzles.
 
On a daily basis, homeschoolers, tutors, and parents simply trying to help with homework experience the truth of the adage "The teacher learns more than the students." I've been learning more than my children for three decades now, and helping other parents learn more than their children for almost that long. I hope my books help to make math your children's favorite subject.
--Denise
