[ Update 9/24: Maria won the copy of the book. Stay tuned for more book giveaways. ]
I just received this email from a publisher:
Dear Sol Lederman,
I’m writing from The Experiment, a nonfiction publisher in New York City. We’re just about to publish a new book for parents on math education—Old Dogs, New Math: Homework Help for Puzzled Parents, by Rob Eastaway and Mike Askew. We found your excellent math blog, and we thought that you might want to consider this new book for a review, for a reader giveaway, or otherwise for your site.
Old Dogs, New Math is a timely new resource for parents who would like to be able to help their children with their math homework, but who find themselves puzzled by the math problems their children have brought home, or who may have tried to offer guidance but whose kids advise, “That’s not how the teacher does it!”
Rob Eastaway, author of numerous popular math books, and Mike Askew, a college professor of math education, outline all the new strategies elementary schools use to teach students not only to solve math problems, but also to explain why their methods work. Old Dogs, New Math is sure to lower everyone’s stress levels when the hour rolls around every evening for math homework!
We’d be delighted to send you a review copy of Old Dogs, New Math to consider for your website, and/or a copy for a giveaway contest. If you’re interested, please advise me of where we should send a copy.
You can find more information about Old Dogs, New Math and its authors at the website: here.
