The educational CD-ROM Solid Gold Gnarly Math offers more than eighteen hours of entertainment and instruction and teaches Geometry, Algebra, Trig, Probability, Statistics, Numbers, and Topology. It also features games, magic tricks, puzzles, and a Math Lab. This CD can be helpful if you’d like to provide your kids with a head-start in mastering math, show your kids (and yourself) that math can be fun, refresh your own math and improve your math teaching skills.
Monty Phister, creator of Gnarly Math, writes: “… we’re so confident that Gnarly Math will help you and your children learn and enjoy math that we offer it with a 5-year, Unconditional Money-back Guarantee.”
Monty also edits a free hilarious math newsletter, the “Gnarly Gnews, ” which contains mathematical cartoons, limericks, riddles, and “news items” from today, yesterday, and tomorrow. (You’ll learn a little history, along with some art and literature, as well as math.)
At his web site Monty offers six Mathematical “Gofers” which will encourage your interest in math, such as free downloadable examples that show how a computer can kindle your and your children’s interest in mathematics. You can play pool on a parabolic table, stretch a skyscraper, color soccer jerseys, visit a strange flat universe, paint a map of the United States, and more!
