Just Maths Magic is a series of six books written specially to interest children in mathematical learning by appealing to their natural fascination with magic and illusion. Based on the premise that learning is most effective when children are engaged and self-motivated, the books have been edited to appeal to children’s inborn sense of wonder and curiosity. The series aims to:
- Excite students into building up confidence in their analytical skills and grasping the various mathematical concepts through practice.
- Enable students to acquire creative and critical thinking skills in solving mathematical problems.
In magic, something that appears completely effortless and magical is actually the result of intensive practice by the magician. In the same way, hard work and persistence by a student can work wonders to improve problem-solving ability.
Notes and Tips have been included in each book to promote recall of fundamental concepts and usage of certain techniques to solve mathematical problems.
Worked Examples serve to guide students on how to present their answers in a clear and concise way.
Graded Questions(*,**) are included in the book to indicate the level of difficulty.
End of Year Revision Paper is included at the end of the book to gauge the students’ level of understanding and mastery of the concepts learnt.
Answers at the back of each book are supplemented with Online Detailed Solutions to facilitate effective learning for the students and act as a useful guide for parents to teach their children.
Through step-by-step instructions in the Just Magic pages, students will learn how to perform simple magic tricks as we explore the magical world of Mathematics.
Each book also has a Just Magic DVD containing performances and teaching of magic tricks by a professional magician. These include special tricks selected from the book and many more!
