Fun & Clever
Did you ever wake up to one of those days where everything is a problem?
You have 10 things to do, but only 30 minutes until your bus leaves.
Is there enough time?
You have 3 shirts and 2 pairs of pants.
Can you make 1 good outfit?
Then you start to wonder: Why does everything have to be such a problem?
Why do 2 apples always have to be added to 5 oranges?
Why do 4 kids always have to divide 12 marbles?
Why can't you just keep 10 cookies without someone taking 3 away?
Why? Because you're the victim of a Math Curse. That's why. But don't despair.
This is one girl's story of how that curse can be broken.
Math Curse is a children's picture book written by Jon Scieszka and illustrated by Lane Smith. The book tells the story of a student who is cursed by the manner in which mathematics is connected to everyday life.
