Review Highlights:

We loved the real-world aspect of this product. Pet Math teaches math concepts in a meaningful way while helping prepare kids to take care of a pet, but it also teaches them about the responsibilties, including the financial responsibilties, involved. Children learn data analysis and practice math skills such as area and perimeter, graphing, division, etc., but they also learn less commonly taught math skills such as check writing and budgeting! Hooray!

My six and nine-year-old nephew and niece came to me, their aunt, begging for a dog this summer. However, their parents wanted to find a way to teach them what it means to take care of a pet first. We used these Pet Math booklets which combine the opportunity to practice mathematical skills as well as educate them on the responsibility and financial aspect too. They have learned about food costs, grooming bills, and veterinarian expenses through graphs, charts, data analysis, and story problems. Their parents now feel like they are prepared to look after a dog, and it kept them academically engaged over the summer which will make for a smoother transition into the school year.
