We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Challenging multi-step word problems center on everyday activities: shopping, traveling, sports, and cooking. The scenarios and questions are livelier than typical word-problem fare. However, other than definitions of formulas and suggestions for rounding, no problem-solving strategies are suggested or demonstrated. Well-chosen stock photos are included, and detailed answers are appended. Reading list, websites. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Math Everywhere! titles: Ball Game Math, Kitchen Math, Math on the Move, and Shopping Trip Math.]

Gr 3–5—"Without math, sports would not exist," Marisco informs us. You'd also have difficulty making muffins for 90 people, figuring out the cost of your hockey team's trip, or getting the most goods for your shopping dollars. Numerous practical examples set in busy, two-page entries encourage children to use computation in making everyday decisions. A diverse cast of children and adults face quandaries requiring readers to add, subtract, multiply, divide, or apply percentages or fractions to find a solution. Brief reminders of common math formulas are included within some problems. Most of the math is quickly done with a calculator or paper and pencil, and there's an answer key at the end of the book. The realistic scenarios are generally appealing and well constructed for math practice and learning sensible decision making in numerous aspects of daily life. The recipes in Kitchen Math are a little lackluster, but Shopping and Sports are particularly strong, with the latter covering 12 different sports. Old-fashioned word problems made fresh and new.
