Book Review:    Challenge Math For the Elementary and Middle School Student

 
 

This book is appropriate for homeschooling and for kids in need of more challenging work with math. Challenge Math is also appropriate for teachers who are looking for more ideas that will stimulate their math students. Filled with enrichment exercises that truly exercise the brain in stimulating ways, this book offers fresh and original math problems spanning subjects from algebra and decimals to astronomy and physics. 

Cartoon-like drawings and numerous illustrations help to keep a child's interest and explain methods that might otherwise be considered tedious if simply laid out in only text-form. Chapters are simply entitled such things as Astronomy, Trigonometry, Probability, and so forth, and each contains questions at three different challenge levels: level one (even this lowest difficulty level is termed "challenging"!), level two, very challenging, and Einstein level. 

The book is laid out in such a way that encourages self-learning (where a student is self-motivated) and is equally accessible to homeschool teachers.
