   Sir Cumference Lessons for Kindergarteners
I used this book with my Kindergarten students to help them understand the meaning of pi. It was well written and well worth the read. But the boys were only able to comprehend the part about the "T" in "Sesame Street." I also segmented the book so that I could demonstrate the math behind it using repeated subtraction on Chart Paper. This made the visualization of the text meaningful to them, he said. Then, included this in my Parent Newsletter so parents would know how to explain these concepts to their children, plus tell them there are other math concepts books available to help children comprehend math concepts, not just learn them but be able to apply them.

   Math is interesting!
Used this to teach a 6th grade math class about pi. It was a lot of fun, and when combined with other activities, my students seemed to enjoy it. They also gave me some very positive feedback, which I didn't expect. That said, 6th might be the upper age bound of this series -- which is too bad I'd love to use it with my 8th graders!

   Pi Day
I was planning a Pi day celebration and came across this book. For us, it's just perfect!

   An adventure in Pi.
I picked up this book because I was learning about Pi in a math class and I am really glad that I did. My daughter liked the dragon and I liked that it had math problems to name the characters. The best way to get students to learn is by making it interesting and enjoyable, and I believe this book did just that. Yes, I will be getting the rest of the set - for myself just as much as my daughter.

   Creative Basics
I am a high school math teacher and absolutely LOVE the series of books. It still helps my high school students understand basic concepts in a fun, creative way.

   Discovering PI in a mid evil kind of way.
In "The Order of the Phoenix," PI must find a way to save his father from the evil curse of the fire breathing dragon. I think the fourth-graders really got a kick out of it, Mrs. Dhaliwal said. They wanted to learn pie by working with him, but he was too shy. There are even places to stop and let the kids try a couple problems. They include measuring and dividing, and creating labels. This is a must have, Mr. Dhaliwal said.

   This book is a BLAST!
My kids absolutely love the book. The boys are aged 7 to 12, and the girls are aged 11 to 3. My son absolutely loves the story and the knights and the adventure, his mom said. He is learning something new every day. My older kids enjoy the story also, but it has a different level of reinforcing what they have already learned. Great concept, said Dr. Paul LiCalsi. Can't wait for more! Microsoft already owns all four patents.

   Great Book
This book is a great introduction to the number pi. This book is a great introduction to math and makes learning math fun, too.

   FANSASTIC
Even at younger ages it's a fantastic intro to math terminology. Whether or not they fully understand it right away is irrelevant, Mr. Rule told the judge.

   Cute story!
The book is the first in a series of educational books aimed at introducing the concept of pi to children. Sir Cumference, Lady Di of Ameter, and more. The book doesn't talk down to kids, but it's not too complicated either. We love reading her books.
