Real World Math for Kids! Aug 1, 2000
I purchased this book for my 10 year old to work on during summer vacation. Delaware is deep into education standards, writing and problem solving. This book touches it all! The "word problems" are great short stories and deal with topics children are familiar with. The questions after each story challenge children in reading comprehension as well as math skills. I would recommend this book for teachers as well as parents for enrichment purposes.
