Summary, etc.:
With 30 activities and crafts that children can play their way through, this kids' book takes the fear out of math--and gives you the skills to become a math expert. Children will find out that being a mathematician isn't just about scrawling numbers on a dusty chalkboard--it's part of our everyday lives! How to Be a Math Wizard teaches kids to think like math pros as they ask mathematical questions and get hands-on with key math concepts. From calculation and numbers; to space, shape, and measure; all core curriculum math topics are covered in creative and engaging ways. This book invites kids to investigate math in a playful, hands-on way, using things from around the house: find out about perimeter by designing and building a mini house, practice multiplication through a game of bingo, sweeten probability through chocolate, and uncover the mystery of coordinates through a treasure map. If you like solving problems, making things, and learning facts, then this is the book for you, mathematician!
