A New Twist on Math

Posted on: 01/19/2021 Back to all blog posts

Royal Fireworks Press announces the re-release of one of our classic publications: Math Verses with Twists. This math book, which originally came in four slim volumes, has been redesigned, freshly edited, and combined into a single book of 100 math problems, logic puzzles, and conundrums that will get kids thinking about math in new and creative ways.

Each page contains a few stanzas of poetry that present a story problem. Kids must think creatively to discover what it is that the poem is actually asking. Often they must calculate an answer using math skills, but sometimes the problem is presented with a twist, and the answer isn’t what they’re expecting! This teaches them to pay careful attention to what they hear or read, and it encourages out-of-the-box thinking and a hefty dose of creativity. It also promotes interdisciplinary connections between the English language and the universal language of math, all within the context of poems about a variety of topics and subject areas. Answers to the problems are in the back of the book. Math Verses with Twists is a great way to make math fun!
