Review by: Kathy Alexander, Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School - April 1, 2012
I believe that the lessons will be appealing and beneficial to middle school students and will be beneficial to teachers who are trying to extend lessons and push critical thinking skills to a new level for their high-ability students.
