Editorial Reviews

"Our middle school teachers have been very happy with the format and are looking forward to using this resource next academic year. Some of the things they like about it are that it does have more practice problems than our present resource and that all the topics explored at each level are ina single book which makes it easier for students to manage." --Phil Bennett, Academic Leader Mathematics, International School of Luxembourg
