Reviews - What do our customers think?
Math challenge  Nov 3, 2006
I sent this book to my daughter, a 7th grade math teacher, and she was thrilled as were her collegues.
Finally! Real math from real people in the real world.  Nov 19, 2004
Everywhere I go, teachers are using this book in their classrooms, and looking for more by the same author. The math problems are easy to comprehend, the words are true, and 4th-12th grade students who use the book quickly get an understanding of just how useful math is going to be. There's a truck driver, an archeologist, a lawyer, a farmer, a nurse, a veterinarian, a pizza cook, and an arson detective, to name a few.
