  1. Great for developing real-life math skills
    Both the style of questions and the topics covered in these books are particularly helpful for students preparing for standardized tests. Beyond test preparation, the lessons are great for developing real-life skills that require a combination of reading, thinking, and math.

  2. Taking Math in The Direction of the Real World
    Math Detectives has been instrumental in helping my children apply their math skills beyond their core math programs. We work in this series during the summer as review and reinforcement of math skills. This year one of my children had done well in her elementary math program, but she had decided math was not her forte and was a little intimidated. I gave her the Beginning book early in the summer. When she had completed about half of it, I noticed that her confidence level and reasoning ability had improved. By the end of the book she had decided that math can be fun.

    I think that overall these software programs have been challenging for the kids. I really like real life math problems and these seem to mostly be that way. What I like the most is that my children are enjoying learning math. Math is my hardest subject. So to see my children enjoying AND understanding math is awesome!

    <i>Math Detective</i> is an ideal solution for test preparation because it does not teach to a particular assessment. It develops the skills needed to excel on new assessments. In my field testing with students in grades 5-6 and some older students in grades 7-8, <i>Math Detective</i> was highly effective in clarifying topics that students found confusing in previous years.

    I am enjoying the <em>Math Detective®</em>. I like the integration of the reading and the reading comprehension components. The real world questions are interesting and engaging for the kids. When asking the questions for higher level thinking,I like the approach. It is not simply: explain in another way or show how you got the answer but is specific with the higher order thinking questions. Basic things such as font size, readability, number of questions on a page, answers in the back, user friendly and the way it is organized are all excellent. I like how it develops skills and is not specific to a single concept. Putting the thinking on the student is a great idea and the book does this nicely.

    <i>Math Detective</i> is perfect preparation for the WASL test. It works great because it helps students learn to follow directions. I've never seen anything like this and I've looked all over the internet.

    These problems encourage real thinking behaviors and tie together reading, writing, and math. A great resource. Recommended!
