Did you ever wake up to one of those days where everything is a problem? You have ten things to do, but only thirty minutes until your bus leaves. Is there enough time? You have three shirts and two pairs of pants. Can you make one good outfit? Then you start to wonder: Why does everything have to be such a problem? Why do two apples always have to be added to five oranges? Why do four kids always have to divide twelve marbles? Why can’t you just keep ten cookies without someone taking three away? Why? Because you’re a victim of the Math Curse. That’s why. But don’t despair. This is one girl’s story of how that curse can be broken.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane Nowacki | 2/18/2014

    " This is one of my favorite children's books! My middle school students love having this book read aloud to them and when we finish, they create their own version of the story. I love reading their versions, and it really helps them look for the math in everyday things. A must have for any math classroom! "

    " Math Curse really gets children into math. It shows them how many times you really use math in every day life. I remember asking the math teacher growing up "Where will I really need to use this?" You really do use simple math in every day life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 12/10/2013

    " Good book for older students that is about how math surrounds us throughout our everyday life. It could be confusing and may be good for a small group as it can seem confusing because the words are all over the pages. Also hits on questions. "

    " This books helps children learn that math is all around us and we use math concepts in everyday life. There are many great problems in this book that could be used in an upper elementary classroom. The children could work cooperatively and try to solve some of the problems presented in the book. "
