This math resource is a true find. It is loaded with excellent ideas about teaching math to your children (K-8). Activities and games are fun and interesting and are set forth in a logical manner, grouped by concept. At 300+ pages of math games and activities, it is an invaluable resource. I've already ordered my own copy. Also look at Peggy Kaye's Games for Math, another excellent resource for fun math games.
Have you taught your children about Palendromes. Somehow we have been doing math for years and haven't hit these yet among lots of other cool inspiring math things. This is a great book that was referred to me by a math mentor to inspire my children to think more mathematically, not just learn how to do equations. So far, we are having a blast!

I purchased it and have been happy with the suggested games. E keeps saying, "let's play another math game!" I'm sure more math-oriented parents are already intuitively doing these things with their kids, but this gives me the extra prod to wake up my math imagination.
Great resource book for family fun and learning. This is resource book I will keep on our shelves and use from time to time throughout the next 15+ years! It has a good, easy to use set up. My kids have enjoyed the activities we have done from it so far. I look forward to doing more!
Loaded with lots of great math activities and ways to understand math concepts more easily.
this book is a great idea . . . I just never seem to find the time to actually do it!
