Young Math

The Crowell Young Math books are about 34 pages each and were first published between 1970 and 1978. Now out-of-print, they are an excellent introduction to mathematics and expand concepts to the limits of a young child's understanding. For early elementary through junior high.

Each book starts out simply and builds on that foundation to create books that inspire and challenge.

During the 1970's the publisher wrote as follows:

"Using an imaginative new aproach to basic principles, these books invite the very young reader to explore, to understand, and to enjoy mathematics. Lively, accurate texts and pictures show clearly the relationships and patterns of things and numbers that are the foundations of modern mathematical concepts....These books are designed to enrich the child's knowledge of mathematics. Some of them deal with topics not ordinarily taught in school. Some extend ideas that are taught in school. All of them stimulate the child to be actively involved in mathematics."
