The Grapes of Math

The Grapes of Math

by Greg Tang Illustrated by Harry Briggs

The Grapes of Math will challenge all kids — and parents, too — to open their minds and solve problems in new and unexpected ways. By looking for patterns, symmetries, and familiar number combinations displayed within eye-catching pictures, math will become easier and quicker — and more fun — than anyone could have ever imagined!

Can math be creative? Absolutely! These number puzzles test kids' ability to use symmetry and number patterns to decipher math problems in their heads. Using everyday objects, kids can discover that there are numerous ways to solve a problem, whether counting windows, strawberry seeds, or figuring out how many minutes are left until summer vacation.
