First of all, I would like to say thanks to Bridges4Kids for
allowing me to review The Monstrously Fun Fraction Book.
Congratulations to Mike's Math Club on true genius and
This book is
such a great addition to our home schooling program. It
has helped to open up the thinking process for all of us.
We've used it for homework reinforcement and to assist with
daily school work. The children found the characters to be
extremely fun: Hollie Hamster, Ollie The Owl, Detective Duck,
Decimal Dalmatian and the rest of the gang, played very
important individual roles in the learning process. The
Frankenstein Family was also great at helping the children learn
the concepts and terms while reinforcing their knowledge in the
area of fractions.
I was having
difficulty teaching fractions to one of our children who was
having problems understanding and staying interested. Now,
with The Monstrously Fun Fraction Book, he is
understanding more and paying a lot more attention.
He is showing much more interest.
The CD-Rom, a
very useful addition to the book, contains easy-to-print
worksheets and all kinds of student pointers and resources.
The Fraction Tips, Handy Helps and Answer key all make it very
convenient for the teacher.
I would say that I enjoyed the activities just as much as the
children did! It is apparent that this was a carefully
planned book; the attention to detail is phenomenal. I
would recommend this book to anyone whose child is learning
fractions. Thanks a lot for the help, Mike's Math Club!
math skills and have fun with Mike’s Math Club characters!
