I used a lot of those ideas with a 4th grade math club I helped run after school; quite a few of them apply just as well for middle and high school students unless they are very experienced problem solvers. The strategies are very general, and the book is wellwritten. It's a better resource for parents/teachers than it is for the kids to read themselves, I think. There are some other books (The Number Devil, and The Math Curse, and Math for Smarty Pants are some that spring to mind) that are more fun for the kids. Joshua, for the T2T service
