Math Potatoes is full of Tang and Briggs' trademark humor, wit, and extraordinary creativity. Tang has proven over and over that math can be fun, and this new addition to his acclaimed series of mind-stretching math riddles is sure to be another hit.

Greg Tang has mixed poetry and math in a fun yet challenging way. Kids will love the illustrations as much as the poems. The math puzzles that the pages contain include concepts such as symmetry, multiplication, addition, estimation, subtraction, quadratic equations.

This book is a creative way to teach patterns, problem-solving, grouping and other math concepts to children of an appropriate age level.

I've been lucky enough to view an advanced copy of this new book by Greg Tang. I think his work gets better and better every time a new book is released. This book is more challenging, but if you have used his other books with your students, you will see how the concepts will help them solve the new problems. My favorite is creative!
