Great homeschool book for roughly 4-5-6 grades, my 10 yr old son is bored with workbook pages of problems, but he''s enjoying reading about "real life" uses and applications of math concepts. Each subject is usually a 2-page spread with illustrations and short paragraphs, and he can usually absorb 2-3 concepts at a time before we move on to something else. I can pick a section to help illustrate a concept we''re working on in a math workbook, or let him browse and pick a section to read that catches his interest. It''s been a worthwhile book for us.

Too dark to read

The publisher thought it would be a brilliant idea to print a children''s book with dar, depressing colors, and even darker ink. This book may have good content but is unreadable! Anyone in the publishing business knows that children''s books should be on light-colored paper... See more

i enjoyed this even more than my grandchild, 8, did...and found out why the ancients used a base 12, 24 and 60, which has bothered me for 75 years...i wholeheartedly support those enlightened revolutionaries who wanted us to have 100 minutes, 10 hours, 20 hours, 10 months, etc, instead of using base 60, and fractions thereof...but at least i have now learned a rational reason why, so thanks... recommended!
