Weird--definitely didn't mesh with my learning/thinking style, and I think that's a problem with me. I'm hoping it will help my son to think "out of the box" a bit. Encourages children to recognize patterns, problem-solve, see things differently, which eventually leads to a lesson on measurement, counting, graphic arts, perspective, etc. but in a very obscure and indirect way... Very unusual, but I think it could really work.

This is more for like 1st or 2nd grade because I skipped a chapter on counting, which I already knew. It was like learning and you didn't really know it, and going over stuff I already learned but in a better way. The best chapter was when they had a machine that could change things to different things.
