You can help prevent math anxiety by giving your children the mental tools they need to conquer math problems.
Young children expect to look at a word problem and instantly see the answer. But as they get older, their textbook math problems also grow in difficulty, so this solution-by-intuitive-leap becomes impossible. Too often the frustrated child concludes, “I’m just not good at math.”
With practice, however, any student can learn to master word problems.
Word Problems from Literature features math puzzles for elementary and middle school students inspired by classic books such as Mr. Popper’s Penguins and The Hobbit. Denise Gaskins demonstrates step by step how to solve these problems — and how to build a strong foundation of problem-solving skills that can handle any situation.
And when you finish the puzzles in this book, Denise shows you how to create your own word problems from literature, using your child’s favorite story worlds.
You’ll love this book, because it prepares your children for mathematical success. Order your copy of Word Problems from Literature today.
