Math Dictionary Giveaway Ends 10/5


I don't know about you but Math has never been my strong subject. I was a straight "A" student in English and everything else but I always struggled with Math. So wouldn't you know that my 4th grader loves Math and is even in the Advanced Math class at school. This means when he needs help with homework, we are in BIG trouble because I have been out of school for a looooooooong time and I remember very little of the stuff I did learn. Ask me to calculate a percentage for a discount while shopping and I can do it in seconds...anything else, forget it! So naturally I was pretty excited to get a copy of the Math Dictionary for kids!!  I now call it my "Math Bible" and since it's recommended for grades 4-9, it's perfect for us right now and going forward!!!




Equipped with this handy reference of more than 400 full-color, illustrated definitions, children will be able to quickly find the definitions and illustrated examples that will enable them to solve many of the math challenges they face. Covering everything from "addend" to "zero," the updated edition of the best-selling Math Dictionary for Kids gives students in grades 4–9 definitions, illustrations, and examples that can help them solve math problems. This handbook includes illustrated, concise explanations of the most common terms used in general math classes, categorized by subjects that include measurement, algebra, geometry, fractions and decimals, statistics and probability, and problem solving. This newly updated edition also discusses how students can use manipulatives and basic math tools to improve their understanding and includes handy measurement conversion tables. Each term has a concise definition and an example or illustration. This is a guide that needs to be in every child's desk.....and I am going to add to that! This is a book that needs to be on every parents bookshelf!! Recommended price is $12.95 but I have found online for as low as $7....definitely money well spent!!!
