Synopsis

Text for Author Bio: Norman Santora, PhD is a Medicinal Chemist who has used mathematics in designing biological agents for a major pharmaceutical company. He holds 21 patents and has presented over 20 seminars on the design of drugs. Text for book description: The exercises in this Math Fun book were designed to instill in the children a good, healthy feeling for math. By teaching the mathematical basis for playing games and doing puzzles, the author anticipates that the children will have a feeling of power and fun as they defeat their elders and playmates. This experience should give them an appreciation for the source of this power; namely, mathematics! Finally, it is his hope that the beauty of mathematics, its logic and symmetry and pattern will become apparent to the students. Another goal in this book is to teach children a variety of problem-solving techniques, and to try to convince them to be prepared to look at a problem with an open mind, by taking advantage of isomorphism, for example.
