Mathmania™

Grades 3-6

Mathmania club is designed to capture the interest of students in grades 3 to 6 with a wide range of math abilities and skill levels. Each colorful 32-page book includes a variety of puzzles that make it fun for kids to look for patterns, shapes and sequences; apply logic; make estimates; read graphs; use fractions; and gain experience with money, time and measurement. Packed with colorful artwork and unique themes, Mathmania books use puzzles and games to reinforce practical, universal skills.

Each Mathmania book includes:

  • Number mazes, dot-to-dots and other puzzles that involve counting  
  • Visual puzzles that have kids comparing, sorting and grouping
  • Silly brainteasers that reinforce logic and reasoning
  • Puzzles that involve estimating, calculating and graphing
  • Whimsical puzzles about measuring, money and telling time
  • More challenges that help children hone problem-solving skills  

How Mathmania Helps Students

Just as kids who enjoy books and magazines are likely to be more comfortable and successful with reading in school, Mathmania helps kids enjoy and become familiar with math. It builds skills by allowing kids to play with numbers at home in a relaxed, no-pressure environment. Once a child discovers that numbers can be fun, learning follows naturally. That's what Fun with a Purpose™ is all about!
