Math rocks! At least it does in the gifted hands of Sean Connolly, who blends middle school math with fantasy to create an exciting adventure in problem-solving. These word problems are perilous, do-or-die scenarios of blood-sucking vampires ( How many months would it take a sing...le vampire to completely take over a town of 500,000 people? ), or a rowboat of 5 shipwrecked sailors with a single barrel of freshwater ( How much can they drink, and for how long, before they go mad from thirst ). Each problem requires readers to dig deep into the tools they're learning in school to figure out how to survive.Kids will love solving these problems. Sean Connolly knows how to make tough subjects exciting and he brings that same intuitive understanding of what inspires and challenges kids' curiosity to the 24 problems in The Book of Perfectly Perilous Math. These problems are as fun to read as they are challenging to solve. They test readers on fractions, algebra, geometry, probability, expressions and equations, and more.Use geometry to fill in for the ship's navigator and make it safely to the New World. Escape an evil Duke's executioner by picking the right door--probability will save your neck.
