Item Description...
Imagine your students tackling math word problems drawn from the extreme sports of polar ice swimming, scuba diving, and adventure racing. World champion athletes (like Erik Weihenmeyer, the first blind man to climb Mount Everest) present real math problems they face while scaling peaks, hang gliding off cliffs, kayaking over waterfalls, riding raging bulls, and plunging down steep cliffs on mountain bikes. Taught by the athletes, using basic multiplication, division, fractions, and percentages, your students will figure out that math is essential even in the world of extreme sports . . . and it can be fun Like the authors' previous book, the best-selling "Real Life Math Mysteries," the word problems in this book are real, alive, and clearly focused. Each problem is provided on a blackline master and includes problem-solving suggestions with a comprehensive answer key. Many of the athletes share their thoughts and encouragement to study hard in school. All activities are tied to the standards established by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Isn't math extreme enough already?  Nov 30, 2005
The problem with this book is that it assumes kids are involved in or at least interested in so-called "extreme" sports. Guess what? They aren't. I know very few 6th graders who are into mountain climbing or base jumping. The whole "Extreme" fad has gotten way out of hand. It's not even that bad of an idea for a math book to pick problems that relate more to kids, it's just the extremeness (extremity?) of the book that fails. Maybe try it with sports that people actually play, like baseball or basketball.
This book has what it takes to interest kids in math.  Nov 19, 2004
This book follows real adventure athletes: world class kayakers, rodeo cowboys, hang gliders, etc., and even the blind climber who recently scaled Everest, Erik Weihenmeyer. In their own words, the athletes share real math that they face on their adventures. Very helpful answer key. Great photos. Reproducible.
Made math fun.  Jul 5, 2004
As someone who grew up disinterested in math because it seemed to have no practical application, this book makes it fun. The problems are tied to extreme sports. Interesting problems. Great pictures.
