Riassunto: The newest book by math educator Ed Zaccaro contains 700 fun and challenging questions designed for advanced students in 6th grade and up. Each challenge page contains a question in each of seven curriculum areas: math, money, science, geography, history/government, language of algebra, and facts and factoids. Questions represent a range of relevant and important knowledge areas that will prompt students into further research of topics they are curious about. Teachers and homeschooling parents will find this a useful break from instructional time or for those times when students have finished their work and need something fun and educational to work on. Students will be motivated to see how many they get right and won't even realize they are learning new things. A separate answer section is included.
