Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Math games strengthen a child's natural, intuitive understanding of numbers. And games build problem-solving skills.

Someday, addition may help our kids set up and keep a budget. Who cares? But when addition answers the important question of "Who has more?" -- ah, that matters.

Eventually, multiplication may allow no-longer-young people to calculate their home mortgage interest or fill out an income tax form. Big whoop. But if multiplication answers the question "Did I win?" -- now that's relevant.

Of course, understanding negative numbers will help students pass their algebra class and prepare for high school math. Boring. But what if negative numbers let them trounce their parents in a math game? That has intrinsic value.

Powered by the joy of play, math games push children to struggle with difficult concepts and figure them out. The ideas become their own.

A veteran homeschooling mother of five, Denise Gaskins has taught or tutored mathematics at every level from preschool to undergraduate physics. Now she writes the popular blog "Let's Play Math" to share math tips, insights, activities, and games.

"I encourage parents to look beyond the textbook -- a useful tool, but such a limited one," Denise says. "We want to explore the adventure of learning real mathematics, math as mental play, the essence of creative problem solving. This is what we need to teach our children: Mathematics is not just rules and rote memory. Math is a game, playing with ideas."
