Math-terpieces by Greg Tang

Math-terpieces, Greg Tang

I love this book and have shared it with colleagues! What a great idea to combine math and art, and what a great way to tackle problem solving which is not always a favourite with kids! For teachers, it helps us cover two subject areas at the same time which we greatly appreciate. When I saw the cover of this book, I was instantly intrigued. I liked the fact that it’s suitable for all age groups — older students may appreciate the art history aspect more, but the rhymes appeal to all ages. The illustrations jump out, are appealing and make math more interesting. When I showed this book to some of my students, one instantly said that it was “neat” because everyone came up with a different way of getting the answer yet everyone was right, to which I responded with a delighted smile!
