œAs a homeschooling mom of three boys, I found this book to be an enjoyable family-fun game and an excellent teaching tool! The questions are challenging and great homeschool problems. We loved the fact that the problems are easy enough to do in the car”no need to break out a calculator or pencil and paper! Plus, the included math resources and tables are great knowledge foundations in themselves.

“This book is a great supplement, both for math loving kids and kids who struggle to connect math to real world situations, in mid-elementary through middle school grades. It uses a Q&A format to connect math to sports, science, hobbies, careers, and pop culture through trivia, challenges, and a bit of math history. We have had a lot of fun in my house using this book to create game show style math trivia nights.”
