This fun new 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.
