This book is a great resource for busy classroom teachers who need materials to extend learning opportunities for those students who quickly grasp the concepts covered in their grade level math curriculum. This book includes four units: geometry, fractions, graphing, and problem solving. The units provide hours of activities that will allow students to work independently or in small groups to extend their knowledge and apply their skills. Each unit includes 13 to 14 attractive, reproducible worksheets and an assignment sheet, making this an easy way for instructors to provide challenging, enriching experiences for capable math students. This book also can be used for review and remediation with middle school students.

About the Author
When she first started teaching in a gifted program, there were few materials available for gifted students in primary grades, so Leimbach began writing her own and had several books published. Having previously taught in the regular classroom, she also was very aware of the need for high quality, easy-to-use materials for regular classroom teachers to use for their gifted students in both primary and intermediate grades. She began working with other teachers, including her daughter, a middle school math teacher, to develop materials to meet that need.
Kathy Leimbach received a degree in Math Education from Valparaiso University and a master's degree in Education from National-Louis University. She has been teaching math at Glen Crest Middle School in Glen Ellyn, IL, since 1981. She currently is teaching seventh grade and is the chairman of the math department.
