“Logic Land, or into Math with imagination” is a collection of 38 non-standard mathematical problems that are embedded in stories and illustrated. This book is about a fantastic town of magicians that do not use magic in everyday life. Instead they choose to use logic to find solutions to their everyday problems.
Through solving the problems that are embedded in a story a student will learn how to distinguish the important information from unimportant one. Although the questions require only multiplication, division, subtraction, addition every problem is different and needs a new approach.
At the end of the book, there is a section containing hints, which guide the reader to the correct way of looking at a problem. It is likely that a child will be able to find the solution after reading a hint. Using this approach to solving word problems will make children feel proud and confident, as well as ignite a desire in them to try more problems. This book is translated and published in China in 2014.
