    Highly recommended for teachers

    This book is great if you are stuck on ideas how to make math lessons into real world problems. I have done almost every lesson in the book and my students were challenged at the same time enjoying themselves.
    I have given this book to many teachers and they have loved all the great lessons.

    A good addition to a teacher's math library

    I think the lessons and books described will make for engaging lessons to ultilize as supplements to any math curriculum.
