The Number Devil: A Mathematical Adventure by Hans M Enzensberger
The Number Devil: A Mathematical Adventure

sposilovich, September 5, 2006

I have taught 7th grade, as well as high school Algebra, and The Number Devil really brings the math concepts to life with my students...even the most difficult ones! After reading a chapter to them (with them reading along with me), I assign them the task of creating their own chapter to the book using a selection of their choice from a pre-made list of mathematical concepts. It works great!
