Balance Math & More
I love to do puzzles, especially number puzzles. This book takes the math fun found in the Balance Math series to the next level. You will do balance scale problems like those found in the Balance Math series - shapes equal unknown numbers and based on the clues you discover the value of the shape. There are other fun problems like 'Inside-Out Math" where you solve for missing values when given a series of short equations and "Tic Tac Math" in which all rows, columns, and diagonals have to add up to the same number. Books and problems progressively become more challenging with level 1 focusing on addition and subtraction of whole numbers, level 2 focusing on multiplication and division of whole numbers with a few problems involving fractions, and level 3 involving addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, fractions, and decimals. Sometimes you may even need a hint on the more challenging problems so they are provided at the back of the book along with an answer key. Have a little math fun and work on critical thinking and conceptual understanding with this series from Critical Thinking Press.
