The author of this book uses poetry to introduce art and with that, certain influential artists and their pieces of work. With each new page comes a new artist and a new set of numbers to find with the images on the page. This book is interesting because it exposes students to older styles of art and makes it a fun challenge to find the sequesce of numbers and pictures on the page. ( )

This book has great information about artist and how to create art while using math. It had great problem-solving skills that the students will learn how to use. I thought it was a great read and would be great to use within a lesson. ( )

This book contains pictures of grouped objects on each page and instructs the reader to find a number of different ways to combine the groups in order to reach a specified number. I like that the book engages the child in problem-solving tasks, but I think that children may find it difficult to remember which group combinations they already used, possibly resulting in unnecessary confusion. I also like that the book contains famous works of art and includes the artists name and the year in which the piece was created. ( )

Math-terpieces is an informational book that talks about different artists and shows their works of art. Then the author takes a piece from the painting and groups it. The students are then required to add up those groups in several different ways to make a certain number. This continues throughout the book giving students the opportunity to practice their addition skills while learning about artists.
