How to be a math wizard by Ann-Marie Imafidon
With 30 activities and crafts that children can play their way through, this kids' book takes the fear out of math--and gives you the skills to become a math expert.

How to Be a Math Wizard teaches kids to think like math pros as they ask mathematical questions and get hands-on with key math concepts. From calculation and numbers; to space, shape, and measure; all core curriculum math topics are covered in creative and engaging ways. This book invites kids to investigate math in a playful, hands-on way, using things from around the house: find out about perimeter by designing and building a mini house, practice multiplication through a game of bingo, sweeten probability through chocolate, and uncover the mystery of coordinates through a treasure map.
