"The Balanced Assessment materials are a great teacher resource. They require students to problem solve and use critical thinking skills as they develop possible solution strategies. The materials add a level of fun, interest, and challenge to the mathematics curriculum." -- Melanie Nichols, Dean of Academic Affairs
"While designed primarily for elementary school teachers, the book might also be of interest to those of us involved in teacher education and who like to keep tabs on what's going on in Grades K-6." -- MAA Reviews, April 2008
