In the spirit of Horrible Histories, the history written for kids and humor-enabled adults, Murderous Maths are a set of books that explain various aspects of math to children ages 8 and up.
The wonderful secret about the Murderous Maths books lies in their engaging stories and accompanying cartoons. As with the Horrible Histories books, the author pokes continual fun a teachers throughout the books which is delightful to the formerly-public-schooled-now-homeschooled child.
Even subjects that are beyond your child’s comprehension (such as algebra or trigonometry) are explained in a fun way so that your child will plow through to the end. Once your child progresses in his math studies to the point of covering a subject like algebra, the Murderous Maths stories will resonate with his progression through the subject.
These books, written by Kyartan Poskitt, are wonderfully fun and full of serious content. Mr. Poskitt also has a Murderous Maths web site that includes additional games and stories for children.
My two love the Murderous Maths books – it was amazing to see how much they learned from reading them. It definitely gives exposure to many topics, so when they come across them in their regular studies they already have an idea what it is.
