The extra S
In the UK we shorten mathematics to "maths". If this makes you uncomfortable, maybe you can get an American publisher to produce some US editions called Murderous MATH. In the meantime, we're afraid you'll have to put up with our extra "s"!
HOW TO GET THE BOOKS
There are specialist US bookstores now stocking our titles, and the books are also available from several online sites. In particular we'd like to recommend the following:
FUN BOOKS This is a generalised American Children's Book site based in Pasadena MD. They have posted a full review of each of the MM books, so you can see for yourself what some young readers think of each one!
HORRIBLE BOOKS These people are based in San Diego CA. They specialise in all the Scholastic UK "Horrible Books". As well as Murderous Maths they also stock Horrible Science, Horrible History, Horrible Geography, Dead Famous and others. They have a long page of feedback from happy customers including this kind message:
The MM site has over 200 pages! For quick reference, here are the pages that most of our American visitors look for first:
A guide to the maths in the MM books This page is set up for teachers, students and in particular home schoolers who want to know the maths content of each book.
The A-Z guide to Murderous Maths This page lists every topic we've covered with where you can find more information either in the books or on this site.
Teacher Resources Here are a set of activities and tricks you can do at home or in class.
We love to hear from you! Please find a
moment to tell us a bit about who YOU are ( student -parent - teacher ?), where you are, how you discovered Murderous Maths and if we've helped you.
