Hilary Koll & Steve Mills

 You Do The Math: Solve A Crime is a great middle-grade children's book that teaches children math skills and contains math exercises to perform with your child and shows them that math can be fun and entertaining!

Solve A Crime helps children to practice and improve their math skills while also learning interesting facts throughout the book about math and how we use it on a daily basis. 

"Fingerprints come in several different types although no two people have exactly the same prints. Forensic experts brush a light powder over prints to make them visible."

The illustrations and the story in the book are written in comic book style which will grab and keep a child's attention. 

There is also a glossary and answers in the back of the book where you and your child can compare answers to ensure they are performing the math correctly. 

Math is sometimes a very difficult subject for some children and they get discouraged and feel helpless when they cant get the correct answers. You Do The Math: Solve A Crime allows a child to practice math skills and encourages them to learn which will help them to become stronger in the subject of math.
