Details: Math Dictionary for Kids may be used effectively in a variety of ways. It would definitely be an often sought reference book in any grade 4–9 math classroom, but it offers much more than simple definitions. The book's clear style and inclusion of many strategies for success in problem solving make it well adapted for independent instruction. In fact, math educators looking to transcend the pedantic and repetitive pseudo-pedagogy that currently benumbs so many of our K–12 classrooms might find Math Dictionary for Kids to be a welcome resource for creative, content-based lesson enhancement.
--John Eichinger, School Science and Mathematics - October 1, 2007
My students were impressed with the explanations of symbols and the ease of use. They also appreciated the fact that the book showed examples of processes rather than just giving definitions.
--Beth Hendrickson, Cobb County School District, Marietta, GA, Teaching Children Mathematics
When students encounter clear and concise illustrations and explanations of terms such as those in this book, they often retain the concept for a longer period of time. I strongly recommend that both students and mathematics teachers use this book. It can serve not only as a student reference, but also as a reference for teachers.
