There is something about the human spirit that loves competition and amazing feats. That is why Guinness World Records™ has built on that desire to develop a math program to help children learn. Using some of the weirdest, grossest, and just plain coolest records they have gathered, Guinness has designed the program to utilize the numerical data collected. Once children read about the records, they must complete the subsequent questionsusually six in totalon the following page. For example, in 2007 New Zealander Elliot Nicholls broke twice in the same day the record for texting the fastest text message while blindfolded, finishing in 51 seconds. Other records for texting are revealed on the same page, and the following questions require students to compare the times mathematically. For the record on tornadoes, work is required to figure the diameters and speeds. But, it's not all about math, since some questions require critical thinking, too. Topics vary from animals and weather to science and engineering records. All the pages come perforated for easy removal. An answer key and skill matrix are included. The matrix is a key telling teachers which areas of study are addressed in each lessonwhole numbers, fractions and decimals, operations, money and time, algebra, measurement, and data analysis. Whether students are struggling with math or just plain love it, this series is for them. Pb, 128pgs. John
