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
