By Bonnie Risby, Robert K. Risby II

The Logic-Math books are designed to develop critical-thinking skills in children through a variety of fun exercises involving math concepts. The exercises cover a range of challenge levels that will enable children of all ability levels to experience both success and the struggle that makes success more satisfying, helping kids develop the kinds of thinking skills they’ll need in other areas of learning and life.

Description

The Logic-Math books are designed to develop critical-thinking skills in children through exercises involving math concepts. Some of these concepts are customarily introduced to this age group; others are typically reserved for older children. However, their introduction in these books is done in a fun and age-appropriate manner. These concepts include number signs, counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, percent, graphs, geometry, volume, and more, as well as number concepts that are involved in such topics as time and money.

The exercises involve organizing information, sequencing, pattern decoding, understanding relationships, inferring, solving analogies, and deducing, all presented in a format designed to appeal to young children. The first two books in the series are for children ages 5-8 (grades K-2). Many of the lessons are pictorial, with simple instructions that can be read to pre-literate children. The third book takes the series to a more advanced level and is for children ages 8-10 (grades 3-4). All of the books include exercises in a range of challenge levels that will enable children to experience both success and the struggle that makes success more satisfying. Children of all ability levels will enjoy the challenges in these books and will soon be applying their critical-thinking skills to other areas of learning and life.

The books in this series come in two versions: one that is printed in a standard font, and one that is printed with a special dyslexia-friendly font that is easier for some children to read.
