This is an iMaths reader filled with real life situations in which there is some need to divide. It doesn’t suggest only one way to solve problems but shows a selection of techniques, asking the reader if this is a good way to find the answer and then why – or why not. The same techniques are then applied in different real life contexts, most of which children will find it easy to relate to.
What a great way to introduce division in a way that will grab children’s interest. I also like the links to Ancient Egypt, sports and libraries. There is also a glossary, suggested further reading and additional notes. A superb book that, as a parent or teacher, I could certainly use with children in my care. I highly recommend that parents and teachers check this out to enthuse children about division, libraries and Ancient Egypt asap!
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
