Just updated my blog post Math Game: War with Special Decks to add a couple of games I missed the first time around:

My book Prealgebra & Geometry: Math Games for Middle School is scheduled for release to regular bookstores in February, 2021. Because no publisher wants to send a new book into the world during such hectic, unsettled times as a big election, the winter holidays, or during inauguration season.
But preorder links are beginning to appear at several of the major online booksellers. And more stores will join them, as the information filters through their website systems.
The paperback will also be up for preorder, whenever the sites catch that update.
And remember: If you don’t favor a particular bookstore, you can buy the early-release ebook right now at my publisher’s webstore — and get a 10% discount if you order before 15 October.
Journaling is a fantastic way to learn and remember any topic — including math. That’s why I created my dot grid journals for kids and adults.
But I just discovered that my printer hates journals and blank books. They refuse to publish them any more.
So from now on, you can only get my math journals from Amazon. The largest-river-in-the-world store doesn’t mind dot grid pages (so far).
Silver Lining: Because the books aren’t available to regular bookstores, I don’t have to allow for the traditional bookstore discount. Which means I can cut the prices. By a LOT — the new prices are 30% off the original cost of the books!

I love this easy-but-beautiful math art project!
1. Print a page of dotty or lined graph paper for each student. You’ll also need a ruler and a large assortment of markers or colored pencils.
2. Students draw a line across the page, lining up their ruler with the grid points. The first line can be vertical, horizontal, or diagonal.
3. Keep drawing lines, but NEVER cross a line you’ve already drawn. Following the grid will create many lines parallel or perpendicular to each other. What angles can you identify?
4. Color as desired. For a stained-glass effect, outline the colored areas with a black Sharpie marker.

Summer’s gone, and the beautiful, brisk days of harvest season have arrived in all their glory.
Fall is definitely my favorite time of year.
