    I love this! We spend a lot of time trying to teach why before the how in math. I like that she explains why we use the bar model. I can’t wait to get my hands on this book! Thank you for sharing, what sounds like, another great resource for my toolbox!

    I have been saying to my son for the longest time, over and over and over again, that math is logic, and not just fast calculations. Word problems is where you put your calculations to use, but in order to solve it, you need to think about it. That what makes one strong in math.
    A book that helps develop that math logic and way of thinking is very helpful. I probably need this to give me an idea, how to teach him.

    Thanks to Denise for the giveaway and to you for hosting! We enjoy her games books and know this has to be a gem as well.

    This sounds like just the kind of activity I would like to incorporate more of into our homeschool, a different perspective on a familiar subject to help my students understand how and why they need to learn their core subjects.
