When young Per visits her uncle Sir Cumference and his family, she learns how to play the game, "Inners and Edges." After she finds a clue linking the game to the mysterious castle on the island of Immeter, she must figure out how to find the perimeter and area of a circle to unlock the island's secret.

Math skills taught include finding the area and perimeter of a rectangle and a circle. Introduces an underlying concept of calculus -- using straight lines to measure curves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever books 25 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We have almost the whole series of these books and the kids love them. They have learned all the mathematical concepts in a fun and memorable way and want to read them again again. I found the books a little too expensive but do not regret getting them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Medieval Math Adventure 16 Sep 2007
By Chatelaine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Back in the days of Camelot, people knew geometry, but they learned it in adventures instead of textbooks. Per of Ameter played a game created by the Countess Areana in which they figured the outside edges and inner pieces of shapes made with the same size squares. Their skill at this game allowed them to solve several mysteries on the Isle of Immeter through a few escapes, as the island was protected by a sea dragon. Finally Per solved all the puzzles, and the sea dragon delivered a locked from the Countess Areana giving Per ownership of the island. When the two children returned from their adventure, Sir Cumference named the measurement of the outside edge of any flat, straight sided shape perimeter, after Per, who now was the Lady of Immeter. The inside of the shapes was called Area, after the Countess Areana who designed all the puzzles they solved. And so, as you will know if you have read this book, this is a cute, abbreviated account of the true way geometry really evolved.

A handy chart on the last page explains in mathematical terms the formulas described in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and educational 17 Jan 2007
By Baker Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My nine-year-old loved the earlier books in the Sir Cumference series, and was excited to hear that a new one was available. He enjoyed it thoroughly, for both the story and the math content. This series of books ranks near the top of his favorites list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even in Middle School they still like to be read to 16 Oct 2007
By M. A. Jameson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This whole series of books is wonderful. The story line for a middle school level is somewhat elementary, but the students still LOVE them. They remember the terms and even bring them up during lessons. I think even at the middle school levels, the kids really like being read to and these books ,as silly as they seem when read at that level, help solidify these key geometry concepts in a fun kind of way. They take about 10-15 minutes to read out loud. Highly recommend!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not appropriate for third graders 2 Jan 2013
By Kate Boynton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book starts out appropriate for younger kids then gets way too complicated. That part about perimeter and area is great then when it gets to circumference and radius it's much too complex. It would probably be great for middle schoolers. I would never read it to my third grade class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cir Cumference Series Awesome find Great Fun Math resource 28 Dec 2008
By Papercraft Vixxen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The entire Sir Cumference Series are a wonderful way to entertain children while teaching math concepts. They don't even realize they are learning, they enjoy the stories. Each story connects math applications in ways children understand and can apply. What a wonderful gift. :)
