Seaside, CA, October 30, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Critical Thinking Co.™, the award-winning national publisher of educational books and software for all ages and abilities, announces the release of Balance Math™ and More! Level 1, the first activity book in a three-book set for ages 7 and up. The new Balance Math™ and More! books sharpen critical thinking, mathematical reasoning, logic, and algebraic reasoning skills giving second- through twelfth-grade students and beyond, an academic advantage as they become lifelong problem-solvers.
Balance Math™ and More! Level 1 (grades 2-5) introduces three separate logic activity puzzles: Balance Math, Inside-Out Math, and Tic Tic Math. Balance Math introduces children to algebraic reasoning and value placement, Inside-Out Math teaches number relations, and Tic Tac Math teaches mathematical reasoning and number matrices. These fun, logic-based problems resemble The Critical Thinking Co.TM hit series Mind Benders®, but instead, use engaging figural (or non-verbal) activities.
Balance Math™ and More! was written by Robert Femiano, a 35-year veteran of elementary and university education. In 2002, Femiano won the highest honor in education, The Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
The other titles in the Balance Math™ and More! series (Level 2, Level 3) are available now.
