Parents looking to help their children and teachers looking for guide those parents now have a solid resource in these first four titles of a planned series. Starting with addition, addition and subtraction, multiplication, and multiplication and division, these books each offer three sections of puzzles carefully crafted by Tetsuya Miyamoto himself to lead students into greater mastery of the puzzles, and in doing so, their own math skills and confidence. Each section ends with a certificate to celebrate its completion--a tangible way to mark the accomplishment. With education at its core, a steadily growing audience is realizing that this simple puzzle, with repeated use, can have long-lasting benefits in and out of the classroom.
