S guy Tess's parents know but that's a whole different problemCan Tess find the solutio. This book was a uick fun read and an interesting twist on middle school realistic fiction The protagonist is an eighth grade math geek who applies math principles to friendships school issues ethical problems family relationships Generally it rang true uirky but not over the top cute I can't decide what I think about the suicidemurder plot It does seem pretty dark for a book about middle schoolers but then that's the age when kids tend to encounter real grown up issues and have to figure out what to think about them

    Wendy Lichtman’s Do the Math Secrets Lies and Algebra depicts an 8th grade student named Tess Tess has always relied on her mother math and her two best friends but as she enters the eighth grade she begins to uestion their trust Tess views the world through math and constantly relates everyday situations to mathematical concepts however as she works through her algebra class she finds that solutions can change and sometimes they do not exist School has become complicated as well Tess catches her 8th grade crush cheating on a history test Life at home is even dramatic as her mother silently suspects that the death of a coworker’s wife might be than suicide Tess is burdened with keeping these suspicions a secret but as that burden grows too great she wonders if her best friends are as trustworthy as she once thought As a future teacher I am reviewing this book and analyzing its practical use within a mathematics classroom Do the Math Secrets Lies and Algebra examines a wide range of mathematical concepts as Tess relates her dramatic life to math Her comparisons range from illustrating ineualities as the relation of popularity between two students to the association of life as a line or line segment ending or continuing after death Though some of these comparisons seem natural and flow with the plot of the story others seem forced and out of place In chapter two the students of Ms Saltzman’s 8th grade algebra class were asked to plot graphs representing something meaningful to themselves As Tess translates Nina’s death the coworker’s wife mentioned earlier into a graph she forms two scenarios that represent Nina’s breathing rate as a function of time One model illustrates a slow death with a gradual curve while the other illustrates a fast death with a sharp drop in the slope This comparison flows with the text and seems like a natural way of incorporating math with the plot of the story Other chapters contain clever methods in incorporating mathematical concepts into the story as well Within her notebook Tess symbolizes her friend Miranda as |m| an absolute value She explains that Miranda turns negative ideas or situations positive and continues to explain absolute value in mathematical examples She later explains Venn diagrams as she compares similarities and differences between herself and her two best friends These comparisons along with a handful of others relate the plot of the story to math smoothly However as the book progresses the mathematical connections begin to feel out of place As Tess discusses situations with her family friends and teachers she connects the conversations to math Many times this method of incorporating math with the plot feels forced After her father tells her she has a negative attitude Tess explains that there is nothing wrong with being negative She explains the number line through the placement of buildings and their relation east or west to a particular starting point Buildings west are given negative values while buildings east are given positive values Tess loses herself in an explanation that is irrelevant to her father’s claim and finishes by stating that she simply has a west attitude Tess’s history teacher Mr Wright is depicted as a math novice He consistently makes incorrect remarks related to math In chapter 14 Mr Wright joyfully walks into his classroom after four students have received perfect grades on a test and writes the numbers 192 77 4 and 100 on the board He claims that these numbers are prime numbers This was likely his unusual way of referring to these numbers as important however Tess picks this apart in her mind stating that this was the “stupidest” math connection Mr Wright has made and that none of these numbers are prime Mr Wright makes a few other statements throughout the book that Tess picks apart In conclusion Do the Math Secrets Lies and Algebra makes some great mathematical connections as well as some forced connections The story loses its drive in the second half of the book as mathematical concepts feel out of place examples become scarce and the story begins to lack entertainment Overall Tess’s suspicion about the murder is uneventful and she simply talks about the suspicion throughout much of the book Incorporating this book in a classroom is possible and may succeed in its purpose However based on the lack of climax and the unnatural way many of the mathematical concepts are introduced I feel that some students will begin to uestion connections the author makes and lose interest as the story progresses Based on this reflection I would not likely use this book within my own classroom

This is like a first grader wondering if she can tell her friends about this secret she hasSo here's the lie Tess said to her mother that she only told Miranda and Sammy but she also told her history teacher Mr Wright She didn't tell her mother that until later in the bookYOU CALL THAT A BIG ENOUGH LIE TO PUT IT IN THE TITLE?I can't even findremember another lie So what the heck?THE ALGEBRA There was plenty of that The bad part of the algebra though it wasn't relevant to the story It was just random math facts that weren't even needed to be putI'm going to talk about TessA She's crazy about math At the end of the book she gets an award called the Math Whiz What a surprise Not B She's disrespectful She disobeys her parents AND corrects her teachers because they say stupid things about math that irritate herJeez girl chill C She doesn't realize that there are things she can't tell her friendsThere is no character development At least I can't find anyI'll complain about the summary nowWHAT ROMANCE? THERE WAS NO ROMANCEIs it like with that Damien guy? He just stood there smiled said like two words to her everyday and was gone You call that a romance? She barely even talked to him She didn't say ANYTHING about trying to confess to him She didn't even mention if she had a crush on that guyVARIABLES? THAT'S HER MAJOR PROBLEM?She only talked about how variables irritated her in ONE PAGE She didn't say anything about variables before so why the heck is that in the summary?HER LIFE CHANGES? HOW? Her life is freaking BORINGAnother problem that irritated meWHAT DOES A MURDER HAVE TO DO WITH ALGEBRA?I feel like that was irrelevant to the story even though that was the main thing Heck I would have enjoyed a story just about Tess a romance friend drama and sure you can put the test cheating in thereBut whoa a MURDER? Well actually a SUICIDE? Another problem that irritates meTHEY NEVER SOLVED THE MYSTERYShe pretty much just decided to give upDid Rob actually kill Nina some how? Or was it really suicide?I think the author pretty much said that it was probably a suicide but it wasn't blatantly stated Oh it really was a suicide I guess I freaked out over nothing Oh well back to my life about math and everything Like seriously they never said and the ending was them making a circle staring at the inside of their ankles Talk about cheesy endingsIt was tooooo short Nothing really big happenedIt didn't have much of a climax reallySo yeah Annoying bookI only read it because of school sigh It could have been better I think

    By Wendy Lichtman183 pagesRealistic FictionThis book is a bout a girl named Tess in the eighth grade She is an only child who lives with her mom and dad At school all she worries about is math She gets stressed out about it than anything else Mr Richard another teacher always comes in her classroom to copy some papers when Tess's teacher is in the room He never really tells Tess why he doesn't use his copy machine and why he wont tell her what he is printing Secrets? Lies? Thats all Tess can think about On top of that Tess had come home from school one day and her mom was talking on the phone to her dad in a very worried manner but the odd thing was was that Tess's mom is never home before her Tess heard her mom say? But why in the car why would she be dead in the car? Read this book to find out who she is talking about and what Mr Richard was doingI really liked this book What I liked about it was the suspense in it I liked how there was two things we had to try to figure out Also I liked the characters and the back round to the story I was not expecting to have a death in the story and having to figure out who did it why they did it and was it really them? I liked how there was a other problem in the story about Mr Richards as well I think everyone should read this book because all of what gos on

    NO Tess the main character of this book is seriously an unlikable character She associates many things with math and takes it serious enough to the point of where she tends to correct her parents her teacher and anyone who makes a mathematical mistakeSecrets Lies and Algebra TessPossible murderMathDon't be fooled by the decent length math elements or book cover This book may seem like it's suitable for a younger person but it isn't DeathSuicideMurder is something that kidsAges 4 8 Possibly older would NOT want to spend their time thinking about Secrets Lies and Algebra mainly revolves around Tess No last name?and the death of another character named NinaThe book is not enjoyable and is ratherboringOverallI wouldn't read this again Ever

  8. says:

    I thought that this book was very dull and superficial Tess is obsessed with Richard and then she talks about how she only looks good and is an 8 if her hair is okay and her outfit looks nice I find that senseless and we shouldn't have to read this kind of literature I found all of the characters to be uninteresting; just like the book Overall I did not like Secrets Lies and Algebra by Wendy Litchman at all


  9. says:

    It was a good but there were to many math parts I like math but sometimes I don't know what some of those are Other then that it was a good book The book is about an eighth grader called Tess and she is stuck telling her teacher that the most popular guy in school In the end she does and now the boy is calling her names and being mean to her


  10. says:

    I really like this book because it shows how a girl uses math problems to solve solutions in real life I don't hate anything about this book I really recommend this book a lot so I hope you guys could read this book because it actually could help you with your situations yes that's all so read this book3
