Mummy Math is a story about a boy and a girl who go to Egypt to explore the pyramids and find mummies. While they are looking for monies in the pyramid the boy and the girl get lost. They are able to figure out that the only way to find their parents is by solving the clues written on the walls. The boy and the girl must use their geometry skills in order to do so. I found this book very interesting but a little hard for lower grades. It has hard vocabulary and the book also introduces the students to a lot of geometrical concepts that they may not be required to know in the lower grades, where solid figures are introduced. I think it is a good read for older children and a good hook for a geometry lesson in the upper grades. ( )

Two kids and their dog get trapped in tomb and have to follow geometric Hieroglyphs in order to get out and find their parents.

This book presents math facts to kids in a kid friendly way. Usually we don’t see math being incorporated with history, but it was ancient people of olden times that first discovered the first steps and processes of math. The Egyptians made one of the biggest geometric monuments in world and this book shows that to kids and helps them discover more geometric shapes.

This is a great book to use in introducing different math concepts. It is focused on geometry. Shapes are used as hieroglyphics in the pyramid and the children must figure out different problems to keep moving forward in trying to find the treasure. It provides definitions of the different geometric shapes. Eight common geometric solids are introduced throughout the book. ( )

Math has never been as fun and enjoyable as it is with Matt and Bibi as they accompany their scientist parents to Egypt to search for the mummy of an ancient pharoah, and after becoming lost in the pyramid, must use their geometry skills to decipher the clues encoded in the hieroglyphics to locate the burial chamber and find their way out again.
