By invoking critical thinking skills, the workbook presents an essential understanding to basic math functions that can revolutionize a child's ability to progress through upper grades. Shahid Muhammad is a math department chair for a Chicago area school and a former professor at Grambling University. He is the author of a series of DVDs under the nickname "The Math Doctor."
