Manga Math Mysteries (8 books)

Modern manga artwork will engage readers in these kid-friendly mysteries. In each book, a group of friends from a martial arts school uses visual clues and mathematics to solve a mystery.

The stories illustrate problem-solving thought processes and reinĀ­force math concepts. Written by a math educator and illustrated by talented manga artists, these mysteries will increase readers' understanding of how math can be applied in real-world situations.

"The kids measure their kung fu classroom for shelving; hear a folktale about Shaolin monks using volume estimates to solve the mystery of a haunted well; figure out the distance between a tree and a house to determine if the branches could scrape the window; and even find a hidden room by comparing dimensions! Not only is this educational without talking down to kids, it's pretty entertaining. I also found it praiseworthy that all the families in this series are multi-racial without it ever being pointed out or dwelt upon."
