Dr. Math Books - How, What, Why, Who?

_____________________________________________
About Dr. Math || Dr. Math Home || Dr. Math Help || Books page
_____________________________________________

  1. How did you put the books together?
  2. We began by selecting a set of answers from the Dr. Math archives and organizing them along the lines of a typical curriculum. The result then went through the editing process, during which some sections were cut and most answers were amended.

    The Math Doctors whose answers formed the initial sets are listed in the acknowledgements page of each book.
       [Book 1 || Book 2 || Book 3 || Book 4]

  3. Can I buy a copy from The Math Forum?
  4. Not directly. The book is available in your local bookstore, or online from both Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
  5. Where does the money go?
  6. Like donations, royalties from sales of the books go to the Math Forum to help support our free services.
  7. Who is the intended audience for the books?
  8. We hope these books will reach students as they prepare to take standard courses (Pre-Algebra and Algebra I for the first two books) or as a supplement to a textbook while taking the courses.

    Parents, teachers, and students have told us that the question-and-answer format and the engaging, approachable tone help kids really read the math. The books also support the emphasis on literacy in schools. We hope the books will find a place in classroom, library, and home collections.
