Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amie Rose Rotruck
Math can be a daunting subject for kids (and adults!). Billy Handley shows the average math student how to play with numbers and approach math from different angles. The benefits are twofold: you have a way to double-check answers on math tests and you can impress your friends by doing difficult equations in your head. By using the concept of a "reference number," Handley illustrates how one can easily multiply figures like 98 times 95, and many, many more complicated equations. He includes numerous examples for each concept, and even has worksheets and scratch paper included in at the end of the book. More importantly than the math itself, however, Handley dispels the notion that tools such as this are merely math "tricks." While he talks math skills up a bit too much (one gets the impression that doing sums in your head is a sure path to popularity), his enthusiasm for numbers is undeniable and contagious. For the excellent math student, this book offers new ways to play with numbers. For the struggling student, this book offers a different way of looking at numbers and, hopefully, will make math fun.

    Bill is a great person. He is hopefully a God-fearing man. People should definately read his math books.

    I liked it, but my kids were not interested. After forcing them to do a couple of chapters, I gave up.
