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.
And the winner is . . . Lakshmi. Congratulations!
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.
