While attempting some cleaning and organizing a few weeks ago, I unearthed this book. My guess is I purchased it years ago (I haven't lived near a Half Price Books in almost three years) in hopes of doing something educational with it. Then, like most things, I quickly forgot about it. Fortunately, locating it now was rather appropriate. I passed it off to my 11-year-old daughter.
The book is full of fun menus for pets, from outer space, by location, and more. Each menu gives a student the opportunity to apply mathematical skills and thinking to a lifelike situation. There are worksheets that accompany each menu.
However, my daughter's favorite activity has been to set us up in a restaurant, take our order, and provide us with our total. I often tell her I'm paying with a $20 and require her to make change. It's been a blast, especially for her. Math can be fun !!
