Even though I teach high school math, I do have some lower level classes, in which the students find math to be a drag. I could see how the use of this book might give some of these students a different perspective on math, as it becomes more of a game to them, instead of pointless numbers and letters.

I’d love to use it in my class!

I have a son that loves both mysteries *and* math and would love to introduce this book to him.

MicheleSeptember 29th, 2010 - 12:42

I would love to see this book and possibly use it in my class!

I am learning how to Differentiate Instruction in my classroom and this book would be ideal for Anchor Activities. My students would grow “exponentially” if this were their “prime” source of “add”itional math, because we all know that math is the language of the universe…..

I’d love to use this with my children whom I homeschool.

MarySeptember 30th, 2010 - 00:41

I too am trying to differentiate instruction in my classroom. Ahh, never mind, I have NEVER won a drawing – I’m going to Amazon to order the book now.

I’m always looking for “fun” books to supplement my curriculum and this looks like one my students would love.

Why not?

Any extra tool to get the students interested in doing math that I can have in my possession is a great help.

Ah like most others I am a HS math teacher and I’m always looking into new books to help me teach.

MikeOctober 3rd, 2010 - 08:00

I’m a math teacher and I’d like this both for my students and my kids at home.

Hi,

I am a Science teacher at an Alternative Academy, and finding ways to provide hands-on activities for my students is QUITE a challenge. I am hoping to be able to tie in math for some of the stimulation I am otherwise unable to provide my students. I am also preparing lessons to co-teach with the Math instructor here, and I’m sure this book would be a handy and most helpful tool. Thanks for the opportunity!!!

I would love to explore this new set of math challenges with my middle school students. I work at a school that allows me to construct the math curriculum freely so I’m always looking for more resources!

Hi,

I teach Elementary Education Math at a community college.

I love to bring a great variety of experiences into our classroom. Many of my students discover in this class that not only do they “like” math but, that they can do math!

It would be exciting to bring in these math mysteries!

Thanks,

deb

I work with a grades varying from k-5. I am always looking for ways to make math fun and exciting for all students! These would be a great way to start off math groups!

Stephanie GormanOctober 9th, 2010 - 18:27

I would love to use this book in by grade 6 math class. My students need to be motivated with fun activities to boost their mathematical esteem.

Christel DaviesOctober 14th, 2010 - 21:59

It’d love a copy!

cjoyOctober 15th, 2010 - 06:58

This appears to be right up our alley….it would be a lovely addition to our homeschool world.

As a Middle School Math teacher with a background in theatre (and someone who writes, produces and directs murder mysteries) I would love a copy of your book as it will help me differentiate instruction for my classes which include low functioning to gifted and talented students!
