In his most ground-breaking book since THE BEST OF TIMES (Fall 2002), Greg Tang underscores the importance of four basic rules in problem-solving. Keeping an open mind, looking for unusual number combinations, using multiple skills (like subtracting to add) and looking for patterns, will guarantee any child success in math. In MATH-TERPIECES, Tang continues to challenge kids with his innovative approach to math, and uses art history to expand his vision for creative problem-solving.

Kindliche Fantasie: Ein Karton ist und bleibt ein Karton. Für grosse Hasen und Hasen ohne Fantasie mag das wohl stimmen. Jedoch für den kleinen Hasen ist ein Karton einfach alles. Der Karton wird zum Rennauto, zum Roboter, zum brennenden Haus, zum Piratenschiff und zum Hasengipfel. Hätte der kleine Hase noch mehr Zeit zum Spielen, kämen ihm sicher noch viele spannende Ideen in den Sinn und vielleicht hast du ja auch Lust zum Mitspielen. Ab 4 Jahren, gut, Sabine Kromer Sigrist.

Blitz-Mathematik mit dem vedischen System macht das Lernen mathematischer Grundlagen lohnenswerter. Der durchschnittliche Schüler wird in der Lage sein, Aufgaben wie 46X44, 95X95 und 116X114 im Kopf auszurechnen - oft noch schneller als Mithilfe eines Taschenrechners! Schüler werden mit Leichtigkeit das Berechnen von Quadraten, Würfeln, Prozentsätzen, Brüchen und Gleichungen verstehen. Papier und Bleistift werden zwar vor wie nach für die meisten Aufgaben benötigt, aber die Geschwindigkeit und Genauigkeit der Kalkulationen werden sich erheblich verbessern. Dies motiviert den Schüler wiederum, mehr zu Lernen. Dieses Buch bietet intelligente Strategien, um die Grundrechenarten und Algebra zu meistern. Diese beiden Bereiche sind die Grundbausteine der Mathematik. Wenn Schüler erst einmal diese Aspekte beherrschen, werden Sie sich auch in anderen Bereichen der Mathematik sicherer fühlen.

Manhattan 1936, East Side. Don Birnam trinkt. Und der Schriftsteller hat längst jenen Punkt erreicht, an dem »ein Drink zu viel ist und hundert nicht genügen«. Seit dem letzten Absturz kaum wieder auf den Beinen, widersetzt er sich erfolgreich allen Versuchen seines Bruders Wick, ihn zu einem langen Wochenende auf dem Land zu überreden, und bleibt fünf Tage in der gemeinsamen Wohnung allein. Dort nimmt das Schicksal seinen Lauf: Don trinkt, beschafft sich Geld, verliert es, besorgt sich neues, landet auf der Alkoholstation, trinkt weiter. Schwankend zwischen Euphorie und Verzweiflung, Selbsterkenntnis und Selbsttäuschung, Inspiration und Panik, glasklarem Denken und tiefer Umnachtung, fällt Don zunehmend ins Delirium.
