Mandrill Mountain Math Mysteries: Set 1
Eight monkeys wash up on the shore of a mysterious island that is filled with danger and is already inhabited--by other apes who seem very hostile to strangers. The brightly colored illustrations--set in graphic novel format--and the edge-of-your-seat story lines will make each of these books an instant favorite. Students may not even realize that while they're reading about the troupe's survival, they're also learning math and problem-solving skills. Many critical math and problem-solving concepts, such as sorting, matching, mapping, scale measurement, prediction, and trial and error are cleverly illustrated and incorporated in these multitasking volumes.
