"Math lessons in school have a reputation of being rote and forgettable, but the content has a way of sneaking into everyday life, and by capitalizing on these real-world applications, Tymony helps conquer much of the fear and dread associated with traditional math lessons.” (Booklist)

Well Cy Tymony's creative brain has designed a book that might just turn all that math-chaos-in-your-brain totally around. The primer is practical, full of fun activities, and begs you to get involved. The hands-on approach will win you over and even help you remember how math works while truly enjoying the experience! It is a modern day math miracle that your kid's need to discover.
These easy to make projects help you understand math concepts with ease and with understanding. You can file them away and call them forth for future use when needed.
Remember these concepts from school? I bet you don't... not all of them anyway:
*Division and multiplication with mixed fractions
*Square roots and exponents
*Algebra variables and functions
*Practical formulas used in every day life
*Geometry and trigonometry techniques
*What calculus is and how it is used
*Unusual math symbols and their usage
*Getting started with scientific calculators
*Using spreadsheets for math operations
*Creating Sneaky Math designs and challenges
OK I'll admit it...even reading the above list gives me hives and a pain in my tummy. But one thing I do know, this book will ease that pain considerably. As I re-visit these math concepts and implement the knowledge in this book, I will see them in a brand new light and in a fun manner. Think how your kids will feel when the lightbulb turns on and they actually "get it." Whether you are a "newbie" at this math stuff or need a re-fresher's course this book is for you. I am positive you will love what Cy has to offer you. Problem solved!
Self Disclosure: I received this book free to review but was not asked to do an Amazon review. Since I honestly am quite pleased with the book I wanted to review on Amazon as well.
