On-the-Job Math Mysteries offers exciting math problems that are taken from real-world situations

On-the-Job Math Mysteries offers exciting math problems that are taken from real-world situations. The word problems come from interviews with people in unique professions, such as circus performers, a bush pilot, and a railroad engineer, providing students with real-life contexts for how math is used in people's daily lives.

Nicholas Evan Berg (April 2, 1978 – May 7, 2004) was an American freelance radio-tower repairman who went to Iraq after the United States' invasion of Iraq. Berg was abducted and beheaded according to a video released in May 2004. Berg was abducted and beheaded according to a video released in May 2004 by Islamist militants in response to the Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse involving the United States Army and Iraqi prisoners. The CIA claimed Berg was murdered by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

Met Meat Loaf on an airplane once. Now the rage mob comes for Meat Loaf. For crying out loud quit demanding that everyone think alike, you Puritan Borg.

This quintessential book about number bases is an out-of-this world encounter with mathematics of a different kind. Go shopping through an intergalactic mall, ride on a subterranean hover module, converse with creatures who know your every thought, and eat exotic food at an alien restaurant (if you can keep it from crawling away). While saving the planet from destruction, students will become fluent in base 6, base 2, and base 16 (the computer bases) numbers, while gaining a deeper understanding of our own base 10 number system. This book is an easy-to-follow guide for learning to count, as well as add, subtract, and multiply, in other base number systems with a step-by-step answer key. Best-selling Prufrock author Marya Washington Tyler joins forces with statistician Rita Berg, and 12-year-old prodigy Nick Bollow, to create the ultimate instruction book about number bases. With its humor, cartoon drawings, and clearly understandable language, your students will forget they are tackling complex mathematics. If you love math, you’ll really love Alien Math!
  • This was useful for students who say, "I'm done, now what." It provides practice that is interesting and challenging, not just repetitive.

  • I have been intrigued with number bases ever since I learned about them in 6th grade. It gave me an entirely different and deeper understanding of our base 10 system and set my brain up for understanding the binary system of computers later on. I have been toying with ways to teach students about this concept ever since and this was also one of my ideas. In fact, I have collected rubber alien figures with differing numbers of fingers so I can use them as manipulative examples of how and why other number bases would work.
    The only thing I do differently is place less emphasis on the binary system, until students understand a higher base. But I have seen others teach binary first and other bases later and that has worked for them, too.
    OK, this book is not for everyone, but I do think it is a cute and interesting introduction to other number bases and, for students for whom concepts like this are actually fun and exciting, it is definitely worthwhile.

  • This book presents a very clear exposition of other bases through the device of a spaceman travelling to worlds whose inhabitants have a different number of fingers from us. The traveler has to work through his number confusion to get needed supplies for his spaceship and return to earth. The story line is intriguing and humorous, and the exposition of number bases is clear and extensive, even going into converting base 8 to base 2 and providing practice in base 2 long division. My son loved it and could follow the early chapters even in early elementary school.

    This book could provide a great supplement in school, but it also provides an option for parents of kids who need more challenge in math. You can use this book with your child at home without tripping too much over the school curriculum. It is enrichment that will really solidify your child's understanding of the base 10 system through the exploration of alien math!
