This is a systematic exposition of a major part of the mathematics of grades 5 to 8 (excluding statistics), written specifically for Common Core era teachers. It differs from other books for teachers in that the mathematics is correct, in the sense that all the concepts are clearly and correctly defined, and a grade-appropriate explanation (that is, proof) is given for every assertion. For example, it gives a precise definition of percent and explains how to use the definition to do all the standard problems about percent in an entirely routine manner. It also gives a leisurely explanation for “negative times negative is positive”. Another key feature is an intuitive introduction to plane geometry via rotations, translations, reflections, and dilations that, instead of treating these transformations as merely fun activities, shows how they make sense of the usual geometric topics in middle school, including congruence, similarity, length, area, and volume. In short, the readers will find in this volume a clear explanation of whatever was once puzzling to them in the mathematics of grades 5 to 8.

Princess Sasha Hides a Lion Family: Fun Algebra is the second release of a 12-book Algebra 1 series for children ages 4 and older. The book is a fun and engaging fable about a lion family that was captured in Uganda and imprisoned on an American man's property. The father lion begs the man's 4-year-old son to retrieve a key and help his family escape. "I want to help you, but my parents will be very angry with me if I let you out of this place," Bryan replies. However, that night, Bryan asked God to help the lions escape. As he slept, a rainstorm begins and a lightning bolt breaks the lock on the lions' prison. The 2 big cats and the 2 little ones run deep into the woods, far away from Bryan's house. The lions eventually enter the backyard of a 4-year-old girl named Sasha. The little girl is sitting in the grass solving Inequality Puzzles with her two best friends. Sasha's dog Max starts barking. The girls turn around and see two ferocious-looking lions, along with two lion cubs. They run into Sasha's house through a sliding glass door. Speaking through the door, the father lion convinces the terrified girls that his family will not harm them. James insisted, "We don't want to eat you. You're the only people we know who could help us get back to Uganda. We want your help, that's all." With assistance from Sasha's favorite playmates (Jazmin, Jose, Joshua, Kristen, and Tim), Sasha implements a clever plan that enables the four felines get back home. Captivating pre-story puzzles and after-story tricks show children (as young as 4) how to solve INEQUALITY expressions as well as Algebra equations such as X + (-3) = 1; X + (-2) = -5 and X + 4= 104. Princess Sasha Algebra books are interactive and enable parents (and others) to teach basic Algebra to preschool students. This is true even if: 1) the children don't know how to read and 2) the parent/reader has no understanding of Algebra. The reader simply needs to be able to read on a third grade level. He/she must patiently read the book and give the child time to draw the things shown in the book.
