MATH CURSE cover image
Liked it. "The pictures are fun." One five-year-old talked about how it was silly. "I liked all the information about baseball players when it shows how many homeruns they made and how much money they were paid." "I do think about math sometimes when we have to share with someone else." Another boy said, "Yeah, I think about it when you have to bring cupcakes to school and don't want to have halves or fourths."
This book-based title offers a fun way to talk to kids about math. Fast paced, and clever, it has great visuals which make it look like an animated story problem. It talks about quarts, gallons, kilometers, buttons, shoelaces, cupcakes - all things that kids can relate to. It shows how you can sort desks in a classroom into rows of 6, 4, or 2. It isn't really trying to teach you "how to do" math as much as it is showing "how math is relevant in our life." The gold colors and constant movement hold your interest. You have to pay attention to keep up.
