Sure, your children are doing great in elementary school, and that's probably due to the time you have taken to work with them...to prepare them for school. But do you ever wonder what will happen to that success later on when the concepts get tougher--like when they study calculus?
Your children CAN be ready for calculus--and Don Cohen's book, written for young people by young people, will prepare them. "Calculus By and for Young People" will empower your children to construct the conceptual associations necessary to understand calculus. It is as simple as that!
A specialist in Instructional Design and Psychology and a veteran, myself, of calculus training at Iowa State University of Science and Technology, I have used Don's book with learners age 8 through 72 (you are never too old) for three years now. Don's stuff is EXCITING! I give his books as Christmas presents to my favorite nieces and nephews. I take copies of the book on trips, and PLAY at math with the children at the homes I visit.
With Don as a guide and mentor, I love to play with mathematics. I have seen my students jump up in the air with glee when they solve one of Don't challenges--or giggle as they work at an assignment. I have a video tape of my students at work with Cohen's materials. Watching it always amazes me. This is education at its best.
Don Cohen and you. What a team, working together to help your children reach their potential in tomorrow's world.
P.S. Don't think this book is kid-stuff. Your high school student, or college student will benefit from Don's training as much as your younger child. Don't be surprised when your son or daughter confides: "I've been working on this calculus stuff all year, and getting A's, but I never really understood what it all meant, or what I was doing, until I worked through this book. Gee, thanks for helping me out."
