Thanks to the generosity of The Experiment, a nonfiction publisher in New York City, I have one copy of Old Dogs, New Math: Homework Help for Puzzled Parents to give away, which will be mailed directly to the winner AT A U.S. ADDRESS.
You can see the publisher’s description of the book and read an excerpt here.
They also sent me a review copy, which I hope to write a blog post about sometime soon — though with our schedule this semester, I can make no promises. But from a quick flip through the book, I’ll give it a definite thumbs-up!
How to Enter the Giveaway
Remember, the book must be mailed to a U.S. address. If you live in the U.S., you have two ways to enter the contest:
- Leave a comment on this post answering the question: What part of math do you find the hardest to understand or to explain to your children?
- Post about the contest on your own blog (or on a homeschooling or parenting forum, if you don’t have a blog), then come here and add a comment with the link to your post.
You may do both, to double your chances — but please make sure your link is in a separate comment from your answer to the question, or I may forget to count it separately.
I will accept entries for a week and a half, through
Friday, October 8th Monday, October 11th. (Extended due to family issues that made the weekend too busy!) After that, I will count up all the entries (numbered in order of their appearance in the comment section) and go to RANDOM.ORG to generate the winning number. I will email the winner to get your address, which I’ll then pass on to the publisher so they can send you your book.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the giveaway. I enjoyed reading your comments, and you’ve given me several ideas for future blog posts.
