Sue published me!

May 1, 2015 am31 7:12 am

That’s Sue Van Hattum. And she published a great big book called “Playing with Math.” And not just me. Rather, lots of people contributed. My “play” is two tiny puzzles. But still, it’s a real book. See the real cover (at the bottom of this post)?

In celebration, I took one of my puzzles, and let a class do it. I hadn’t done fallible friends  yet this year, and I thought the kids might appreciate it more since it was now “published” and not just a worksheet their teacher made. (We did the easier one that Sue published, but you might like to try this harder one.) One class loved it, and begged for more. The others? A bit mixed. But that’s ok.


I actually got a pdf of Playing with Math earlier, but a book with a cover is special. You can leaf through it. Which I did. And I’ve already discovered a dozen other ways to play with math. And I am not nearly through. I would have wanted this book, even if I wasn’t part of it. Cool.

You can order Playing with Math here.

    Thanks, Jonathan. I love your enthusiasm.

    I’m so busy with the end of the semester, I haven’t begun to properly promote the book. It’s really neat to see others doing that.

    A slightly more direct link:

    I don’t see a difference between the puzzles on the two pages you linked.

      You are right. I’m looking for the easier one. In the meantime, I’ll post another, just for fun.
