Editorial Reviews

“Five thematic chapters define broad types of applications, such as curves and fractals, graph theory, and topology. This collection of activities celebrates an inquiry-based approach to learning math, which may be an excellent complement to more traditional classroom curricula, especially for reluctant learners. As such, it’s a great resource for parents, teachers, and curious young readers alike.” - Erin Anderson, Booklist Online
