I grew up in Miami. My grandparents lived in Los Angeles. We used to go visit them for about a week every Christmas. My grandmother’s sister Ruth, retired from Disneyland. So every time we visited, we got to go to Disneyland. In order to earn money for Disneyland, my Grandpa would give us math problems to complete. One year he created a giant table of multiplication tables for us to fill out. He would always work on math problems himself, for fun!!! I thought it was absolutely crazy to want to do math.
My grandfather would have absolutely loved, This Book Thinks You’re A Math Genius. Thames and Hudson released this fantastic book this month. It is full of fun math. There are puzzles and problems with wonderful illustrations. I’m pretty sure we would have all gotten this book for Christmas!
