Sneaky Math cover - HighRes

Mathematics is one of the most dreaded topics people have to learn. ( I have to admit it has never been a favorite of mine!)


Best-selling Sneaky Uses for Everyday Things author and real-life MacGuyver inventor Cy Tymony has just released a new book that uses graphics and hands-on projects to make learning math easy and fun.  Tymony takes the tough and turns it into triumph. He shows us how math is all around us through intriguing and easy projects, including 20 pass-along tools to complement math education programs.


Sneaky Math: A Graphic Primer with Projects is a unique do-it-yourself guidebook that uses fun, hands-on, build it at home projects made with everyday objects to teach yourself Fractions, Algebra, Geometry and Calculus and more.


“It’s easy to learn math when you build your own toys and devices,” says Tymony. “There are fun and practical ways to break through the mental blocks that keep one from understanding the basics.”


Each of these do-it-yourself creations uses simple everyday items from around the home to create accurate real-life tools you can use anywhere. Here is a sample of the amazing Math Gizmos you can create that focuses on one of the biggest math hurdles people encounter in school – fractions.

I received a copy of this book and I have to say that I am quite impressed! Math has always been a dreaded subject for me. My son also does not like Math! He really does not care for fractions at all!  This book really does make this subject more fun. I love the Sneaky Fraction Card that you can make. It is great to make and take with you when you are out and about. A great way to practice fractions without hearing “Oh…this is soooo boring!”  Finally a book that makes Math more fun! This book really is great for both adults and children. It is a Must-Buy! A great homeschooling resource. 

Sneaky Math includes projects like cup calculators for addition and multiplication, wheel cards for powers and square roots, algebra, temperature conversion, coordinate planes, geometry, trigonometry, height determinations, and even table-top experiments to help you learn about calculus including rates of change, differentiation and integration.
