It is Pi Day and Usborne Books and More has plenty of math products to help you celebrate.

My recommendation is for three books which are great for your reference library. These are great for students and parents who need a refresher course for a concept or to just to work through. All of these titles are internet linked which means more learning from internet links provided by Usborne.

The First Illustrated Math Dictionary is a new title for ages 6 and up at a cost of $12.99.
  • An ideal introduction to numbers and counting, specially designed for children in their first few years at school.
  • Clear and simple explanations with lively illustrations guide children and parents through essential math concepts.
  • Can be used as a dictionary, or to work through to build knowledge and skills step-by-step.
  • Includes internet links to the best interactive websites offering math puzzles, games and practice.

The Elementary Illustrated Math Dictionary is for ages 8 and up also for $12.99. Preview available.

 The Usborne Illustrated Elementary Math tells it straight and simple, explaining everything children and parents need in order to understand basic level math. This book will help to lay a firm foundation for confidence and success in math. Readers can dip in for quick explanations or work through by subject to build up knowledge step-by-step.

For ages 12 and up also for $12.99 is The Illustrated Dictionary of Math Preview available.

Everyone studying math needs this book, and it is an essential study guide when preparing for exams.

One more title I have to tell you about because I think this is a fun way to learn math is See Inside Math for ages 7 and up also $12.99.

An amazing flap book that shows just how fascinating math can be.

Colorful double page topics introduce numbers, shapes and measuring, fractions, algebra, calculus and pi, and maths in everyday life.
