I'm currently homeschooling my 8 year old son and I'm looking for some affordable math enrichment material. Any has any idea if the Winning Maths of shimes education is a good buy?

I'm looking for something really fun and different. If anyone has other recommendations, do let me know. Thanks! Idea

Cuisenaire Rods have a number of books that provide math enrichment opportunities for many different levels, if your son is kinesthetic. There are also tangrams, pentominoes, and the perenial favorite in our house for math enrichment for many years, muggins/knockout. You can also google "gifted math enrichment" you will find plenty of links to help you!

The Critical Thinking Company has great math books, if he likes workbooks.

Do check out BEESTAR (just google it) - it's free, it's getting great reviews, and it's both online and printable worksheets. I think they've now added other subjects besides maths. Well worth a look if you have internet access Smile
