Category Description for Challenge Math:

Some kids have a natural talent for mathematics. It doesn't take much explaining before they're nodding or saying, "I've got it." Then they're off, racing through their homework at lightning speed. It's not much of a challenge and frankly, kind of boring. That's where Challenge Math comes into play. These books are a great resource for finding topics and problems that will spark their interest and challenge their math and problem solving skills. Though referred to as a curriculum, I think it is best used as a supplement. For instance, if you're teaching a unit on multiplication, you could refer to the multiplication, exponents, area, or distance chapters for some interesting problems. Each chapter begins with instruction so the student has the necessary background to solve the upcoming problems. The text uses fun cartoon characters and language that is easy to understand. At the end of each chapter, there are problems which are grouped by level of difficulty. The Primary Grade book has four levels: easy, somewhat challenging, challenging, and very challenging. In Challenge Math, there are only three levels: challenging, very challenging, and extremely challenging. ~ Anh

Read review from Cathy Duffy and it was positive. Need to have something that challenges my son in math because he is behind.

I am looking for challenging material for students who are high achievers in math.

Hoagies Gifted Education recommended several titles by Edward Zaccaro and expanding mathematical reasoning and skills with our pushing children to simply progress more quickly to the calculus track.

This is one of the best resources we've found It is clear that the author has worked with gifted young mathematicans and understands what makes them tick The real-world problems are exciting and the book offers enough to keep a kid busy for a long time It doesn't provide a lot of instruction so it won't be a good stand-alone core curriculum or for use by a parent who is unprepared to teach math It is fantastic though for kids who have already mastered the basics and would like to go further and deeper
