Fun and just challanging enough 2 Nov. 2012
By Huron Ohio reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Kindle format is perfect for this product. There are problems presented with multiple choice answers. By clicking on "answer" and "return" you can check yourself as you progress. Some of the problems are not particularly difficult but they do make you think! I enjoyed this short book very much.
Keep Up with the Kids 25 Sept. 2013
By Myst5d - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I always loved math in school and was shocked to discovered all I had forgotten after 30 years, but with Reasoning with Numbers, not only was I able to refresh my skills for percentages, fractions, decimals, ratios, and proportions quite easily, I learned a thing or two about how numbers behave. Great book for current students as well as those of us who aim to keep up with our kids in high school.
