The mathematical edition of “Detective Conan's difficult words to remember for 10 year olds” series, a collaboration between “Detective Conan” and key word learning assessment book series, “Detective Conan's difficult words to remember for 10 year olds” has just been released. From the widely popular hit series “Japanese History Detective Conan”, the staff have come together to create a rich assessment book that will help students increase their adaptability and mathematical strengths.
The book titled, “Detective Conan's 157 questions to build mathematical skills for 10 year olds” is different from the usual assessment books that contain mathematical questions and labyrinths. With the concept of “Having fun whilst solving” as its base, the book contains a variety of interesting questions to solve.
Fujimaru Takuya, the person setting the questions, has over 50 years of teaching experience. In addition to that, he has traveled nationwide performing the “Science of Illusion Show”, a show that introduces children to the mysterious world of science and created questions for a local TV program titled, “Math Magic”.
The book contains a total of 400 pages, with 157 questions ranging from basics to private middle school entrance examination levels in difficulty. The questions are split and classed into 5 genres, “Calculation”, “Graphics (Flat)(3D)”, “Logical” and “Adaptability”. Each genre is broken down into “Beginner”, “Intermediate”, “Advanced” and “Very Advanced” levels. These questions are solvable for children up to the age of 10 years old and with Conan's hints to help them, solving them would be an enjoyable task.
Subsequently, for children who are not as academically inclined, the book contains Conan manga. There are many questions that will need to be solved in order for Conan's story to progress, which makes it a wonderful solution for children who have weak comprehension skills. With the addition of manga in the book, the aim is for children to solve the problems without stressing over them and to take away the painstaking image the word “study” holds. Children can enjoy learning whilst playing with Detective Conan and his team.
“Detective Conan's 157 questions to build mathematical skills for 10 year olds” is currently on sale and is priced at 1,500JPY (tax excluded).
