One of the math tricks could turn out to be very profitable. It is called Doing Dishes. To do this trick you need one adult and a never-ending flow of dirty dishes. Ask the adult to pay you one penny the first day you wash the dishes and double it each day. By the end of the month you'll be rich!
My favorite chapter is the one on Street Math. This chapter told me about math games that I can do when I'm outside in my neighborhood. Some involve the sidewalk, people's hats and even shoelaces! You would be surprised how math relates to so many things.
I think that The I Hate Mathematics! Book is informative and fun to read. I recommend it to people who don't have a great interest in math, people who want to know more about math and, of course, to people who already love math!
I was diagnosed with dyscalcula in the fourth grade and had a paralyzing fear of math so my mom (also my homeschool teacher) got this book to help me see that I am good in math I just didn't know it. Seeing how I used math for everything from lacing my shoes, drawing out a hopscotch, even collecting Easter eggs helped me to look at math in a whole new way.
While this book is geared for kids parental/educator involvement is required for most of it but that is part of the fun.
