Using a blend of fun poetry, clearly written helping text, and riddles, this book takes the mystery out of math and makes solving word problems fun. After all, what is a word problem but a cleverly concealed riddle?
The book focuses on fractions, starting with basic fractions and then moving on to more advanced concepts such as equivalent fractions, reduced fractions, and addition with fractions.
Readers learn to interpret pie-graph representations of fractions and also learn about negative numbers, number sentences, quantity comparisons, and the concept of infinity.
A glossary of math terms and a brief review appear at the end of the book.
