Editorial Reviews

Designed to appeal specifically to a young teen audience, the Math Success series might be useful for reviewing math skills but will not, most likely, help readers pick up these skills on their own, as suggested in the authors' introduction. The short format and many examples give these titles an accessible look. Each titled section takes up exactly one spread, making it easy to find a topic by browsing the table of contents or even just flipping through but not always allowing enough space for the best explanation. Small black-and-white graphics of teens making encouraging remarks appear every other page or so. A gray bar across the bottom of each page provides space for definitions—many of which, unfortunately, should have appeared in the body of the text—and suggestions for fun ways to practice skills or other comments that seem intended only to fill the space: "Calendars measure long periods of time. Clocks measure short periods of time." Although written in a straightforward manner, the brief text leaves out much and might only further confuse struggling students. Some terms such as "place value" are introduced into the text without any definition or explanation. The term "regrouping" is used in place of "carrying" and "borrowing" and is never explained adequately. Many of the short explanations, although not technically wrong, might be misleading in their brevity: "the denominator... tells you the total number of parts there are," or "Variables... are used in mathematical expressions to stand for names." Both books in the series suffer from a lack of continuity. After the assertion that addition and subtraction are inverse operations, explanations are found inseparate chapters that repeat much information without cross-references. Skills are not linked or related in an obvious manner, and there is no overriding explanatory narrative to describe such concepts as place value, inverse operations, estimation, or variables are actually intended to clarify. Students might be drawn to these books for their format and might find them useful to brush up on skills. To expand their understanding of mathematics truly, students will need someone by their side to explain concepts to them and probably will find these titles more trouble than they are worth. Index.
