Booklist Review: "For students who wonder when they'll ever use the math skills they learn, check out the Go Figure! series. Each title introduces a challenge that requires real-world math. Twelve missions explain a math concept, followed by related word problems. In A Math Journey through Space, students are leaders of a space mission to Mars and must get their crew safely to the planet. To achieve this goal, they practice addition to navigate through a storm of asteroids, determining angles to head toward a moon orbiting Mars. With each book featuring a different set of concepts, the series offers a wide range of activities (as well as concluding answers).--Leeper, Angela Copyright 2015 Booklist"
