What are some good living math books?


Recommended Posts

OntheBrink, thanks for starting this thread!


I like this list. http://www.mhschool.com/math/2002/teacher/teachres/bibliography.html


I try to get books out on arithmetic and another topic each week. I try to move through arithmetic systematically, but do the other topics unit study like, with very little pressure for mastery, and a clear beginning and ending to the unit.


I find students are far less impressed with just any old math books, compared to we are tackling THIS topic this week and have a variety of books on it.


If I were buying for another family, I might settle on a math topic and get a group of books on that one topic. And if it were measuring, or money, or clocks, I'd give them something to hold or use with the books.
