This book, written over a period of fifty years, features enriched materials for seventh and eighth grade math students that can be used in class
or at home.
After teaching high school math for a few idyllic years on the Island of
Martha’s Vineyard, it was startling to find little difference in the innate
reasoning of grade 7 and 8 math students in Concord, Massachusetts. It was
clear that these eager students needed something better. A sense of the
variety and depth of the resulting material may be had by browsing the Table
of Contents, Annotative.
It is my hope that students will find many rich opportunities in these units
and in the 180 “Today’s Twisters,” pages 411-465.
