Did you know that April is Maths and Statistics international Awareness month? I wasn’t aware of this until we were asked to look at The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars by David Cole recently. Published through Common Deer Press the book is aimed at children in Key Stage Two.
I’m hoping that the 114 page paperback book is going to give my son a bit more confidence with maths, whilst having fun. In The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars best friends Jordan and Justin are the only children in the class who are in the advanced maths class, until newcomer Stephanie Lewis arrives. She’s super confident, comes from California and loves maths as much as the boys do. The three become friends over a love of numbers and a dislike of the class bullies Robbie, Bill and Bryce.
The friends decide to form The Maths Kids group to solve puzzles and they started with solving the dilemma of the seating plan for Jordan’s sisters dinner party. There are challenges set throughout The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars which you as the reader can try to solve yourself before discovering whether the friends managed to work it out for themselves. The answers are in the back of the book.
When there are a series of burglaries in the area, the friends soon realise that their maths skills might help them to solve the mystery of who the villain or villains might be.
The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars is a good read and one that makes maths fun for kids. I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link below (I can earn from qualifying purchases) in case your children fancy taking on the challenge.
