Will definitely use this in the classroom for math challenges. It uses real-life scenarios to teach math in both English and Spanish a real plus in my school district. Each answer is explained in easy-to-read language. For students who don't understand "why" they have to learn math, this book is an excellent example of why math is SO important.
Presenting the problems as "mysteries" is an added draw. Jan 02, nx74defiant rated it liked it.
Received free from Early Reviewers Bit of a stretch to call the short situations "mysteries". But fun ways to show applications of math in real life. After each you get the answer and good explanations of how it worked. Found some flaws in the Spanish translation. Mar 25, Janice rated it liked it Shelves: Similar to One-minute mysteries, but these are solved with math.
Some are good, but this volume is very hit or miss. The volume about science is much better. I use this as a good way to keep my students entertained when I need something for a short time.
