New book: Problems of the Week

I have a new book available for online orders (and you can always view details on all my books along with previews at First Hand Press).

My latest book, Problems of the Week: Developing Mathematic Thinking for Middle School Students, is a collection of thought-provoking math problems for middle schoolers. Each question is a creative problem that gives students a chance to use their math skills in new ways.
  • Estimate the area of the parking lots at Mall of the Americas
  • Use a cricket to calculate temperature
  • Measure how many miles Barry Bonds ran in a season of home runs
Each problem set is photocopy ready with attractive clipart. Teach students that math is more than 30-second arithmetic!

Print edition: $11.99
E-Book: $4.99
