Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This may be the best value maths book ever written. It is excellently produced, with high quality cartoons and writing which is funny and lively without trying too hard to be cool. The book is packed full of strategy games, riddles, "mathemagic" tricks and number investigations. I've used over 20 of the items in my KS3 / KS4 maths lessons, including the round table investigation which is one of the best puzzles I've ever come across for this age group. The book would also make a good gift for an 11-12 year old who is keen on maths and prepared to self-study. The best book of its kind I've ever found.

Change the life of a "Smarty Pants" you know 11 Nov. 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I received this book as a gift when I was in Grade Three, and fairly bored with school. Just like any child, I was put off by the suggestion I should be reading a 'math book'.
The cartoons got me. Plenty of illustrations and a fun topic kept me through Chapter One. From that time onwards, I have been a Math Smarty Pants. In fact, I wound up a student of a mathematical science at the university level. In large part, I blame this book.
The best reason to buy this book for a child you know: whether they are ahead of the pack, or struggling to stay afloat in mathematics, this book will stimulate interest in mathematics, leading to better grades. It can't help but do so.

wonderful! 23 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was given this book when I was young, after having read "The I Hate Mathematics Book." I loved them both. Like the previous reviewer, I'm pursuing math at the collegiate level and I have no doubt that this book played a large part. It is filled with examples of math made fun, but don't get the idea that the topics are trivial - the book introduces some very deep concepts in an entertaining and thought-provoking way. I look through the book even today and marvel at the great variety of topics that aroused my interest so many years ago. Buy it for a kid you know, before they get bored with repetitive arithmetic exercises and other pitfalls of elementary school math!

Great Resource 15 April 2002
By Math Lover - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book has gotten more kids fired up about math than anything I've seen. The engaging format shows kids that math is more than arithmetic - it's fun, it's cool, it's a blast! Even kids who are afraid of math will be hooked! I use it with 3rd and 4th graders who regularly ask their parents to buy it for them. They actually ask for a math book - go figure!

This book ROCKS! 18 Aug. 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
I don't care what anyone else says. This book is great. I'm 10 and I didn't think it was too hard or anything. I think younger kids might be confused, but I LOVE it!

Great Content BUT 24 May 2006
By Grandma - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book contains a number of engaging math and logic problems, something that we do a lot of. Unfortunately, the print is small, the pages are quite crowded and answers are often extremely hard to find, all of which really limits the book's usefulness both in our math program and as a "just for fun" book.
