Computer Fun Math
By Lisa Trumbauer

Grade 3-5-These interactive activity books have brightly colored pages and lively text and illustrations that will appeal to youngsters. Math includes activities to create simple graphs and charts, make and use measuring tools, understand fractions, and design games. Science teaches students to collect and record data, track the weather, identify parts of an insect, and set up simple experiments. Each book starts with computer basics such as becoming familiar with the keyboard, monitor, and mouse but there are no diagrams or pictures of computer screens illustrating the functions described. Pages have numbered, step-by-step directions

enclosed in colored boxes that are sometimes difficult to read. The books are written in an informal style, with chatty remarks such as "duh-you knew that!" or "...old news, right?" While the subject matter is very elementary, the "how to" directions for following the computer activities require a more sophisticated

reading level. Most children won't have the skill or patience to read all of the directions on their own.
