The Big Fat Notebook Series is a series is a set of books that I wish that I had when I was in middle school. On every page of the Big Fat Notebook Series of books you will find that there is a bit of everything that you and your child will need to grasp and master so many of the concepts covered in all of these subjects. As I was reading this I found that I was learning as much as my daughter was. I was so impressed with this series and know that this will be a series that we will be referring back to over the next few years and I know that it will be very helpful to my daughter and to us as we grapple with many of the tough topics (for me, especially in math) during the middle school years.
About the Big Fat Notebook Series
It’s the revolutionary study guide series just for middle school students from the brains behind Brain Quest.
The BIG FAT NOTEBOOK series is built on a simple and irresistible conceit—borrowing the notes from the smartest kid in class. There are five books in all, and each is the only book you need for each main subject taught in middle school: Math, Science, American History, English Language Arts, and World History. Inside the reader will find every subject’s key concepts, easily digested and summarized: Critical ideas highlighted in neon colors. Definitions explained. Doodles that illuminate tricky concepts in marker. Mnemonics for memorable shortcuts. And quizzes to recap it all.
The BIG FAT NOTEBOOKS meet Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and state history standards, and are vetted by National and State Teacher of the Year Award–winning teachers. They make learning fun and are the perfect next step for every kid who grew up on Brain Quest.
