school mathletes they are already a strong team, but the advisor thinks stacey will be the missing ingredient that will propel them to state champions after briefly worrying about being lumped in with nerds, stacey decides to go ahead join up.but the same afternoon she makes this decision, her father surprises her after school stacey is baffled because it s a thursday afternoon her dad lives in new york city he s driving a car obviously he doesn t have a car, because he lives in manhattan she s like, what are you doing here, dad you didn t lose your job, dide you turns out, he did he was downsized, even though he was a workaholic vice president at his company so he did what any sensible businessman who just lost his six figure job does he went out bought a car he doesn t need he wants to take stacey out on the town they get snacks or something, then he invites himself over to make lobster for stacey her mother yeah, without asking mrs mcgill s permission you may recall that mr mrs micgill had a pretty acrimonious divorce so it s not that cool for him to just show up on her doorstep with lobster she s pretty tense about it, but dinner goes okay.stacey has a regular gig tutoring lindsay dewitt in math she s in third grade , but her mathlete practice sessions conflict with the tutoring sessions, so she needs someone else in the babysitters club to take over no one has time for it except for claudia she is of course very reluctant to take the job she did, after all, recently get punted back to the seventh grade she doesn t really feel that she should be tutoring anyone even though she s had great success with both emily michelle shea rodowsky but she takes the job gets access to stacey s prep prepared notes.when she shows up for her first tutoring job, though, neither she nor lindsey can make heads or tails of the notes i m almost 32 i couldn t really follow them either not that i have ever been any great shakes at math, butthird grade math i think i should be able to follow along with that lindsey becomes instantly frustrated, so claudia decides to do things her own way this involves using legos as visual cues making up songs about math rules she concedes that she is maybe not teaching lindsey in the stacey mcgill pre approved methodology, but she s getting the job done lindsey seems to be having fun understanding the basics.stacey s team wins the first round of the state mathletes competition, which i guess is just the local meet against schools we have actually heard of before as if there was any chance that stacey would join the mathletes only to see her team defeated in the very first meet her parents, the babysitters club, some clients all turn out to support her.in fact, the B plot is mostly all about the kids in stoneybrook catching math fever a bunch of them are putting together presentations for the local math fair kids in stoneybrook are such losers i would really love to see a plot in which the arnold twins get tricked into being drug mules or something seriously math fair claudia lindsey show off their awesome tutoring to stacey, stacey pretty much ruins it by correcting terminology introducing all these concepts that are obviously going to be beyond the ken of a math resistant eight year old trust me, stacey, i understand the concept of borrowing numbers while subtracting the names of the different columns have never been necessary to me.meanwhile, mr mcgill is still living his wild crazy unemployed lifestyle he has practically moved into a local stoneybrook hotel so he can spend tons of quality time with staceywhen he s not taking her on special trips to new york city, that is he buys her all kinds of things, like new clothes fancy dinners stacey is so unfathomably spoiled she doesn t even realize it mrs mcgill comments that he should watch his step that he s blowing through money pretty recklessly for a guy who isn t employed, but stacey is like, god, mom, whatever he knows what he s doing really, stacey where s your proof of that eventually, he surprises stacey with tickets to a sold out U4me show at madison square garden stacey is beyond thrilleduntil she realizes that the concert conflicts with the first mathletes meet of the state championship it s a best of three series, so stoneybrook can still win even if they lose the first meet, but stacey is tied for first in the state in mathletes or something against a kid on the opposing team, obviously she doesn t have a chance of beating him if she doesn t attend all the meets she waffles back forth until the very last minute then decides to go to the meet which stoneybrook wins of course.their advisor suggests that they celebrate their win at the rosebud cafe stacey calls her BSC friends asks them to meet her there then her dad insists on taking her her mother out for a fancypants dinner for whatever dumbass reason, stacey she feels she can t say no she also seems incapable of calling the babysitters back in a timely manner letting them know she won t be at the rosebud after all anyway, mr mcgill just wants to announce that he got a new job he spends all of dinner gabbing about it, even though stacey mrs mcgill obviously don t really care stacey does note that he is unlikely to make it to her other mathlete meets because of scheduling conflicts she is very upset.she decides that her BSC friends are all angry with her for not meeting them at the rosebud so she does what anyone would do in such a situation, which is flip out yell at them they re like, dudeWTF stacey she realizes the person she is really upset with is her father.she pulls it together for the next mathlete meet though she loses it answers a question wrong when she realizes her father isn t there, as promised, but then she rallies wins the meet for stoneybrook, also places 1 in the state inmathleticism i don t know everyone is happy for her her father makes it after all he promises to try to bepresent in her life, even though he has a new job happy ending this book didn t really go anywhere i don t know why i gave it three stars

mathletes she s incredible and the team ends up winning all of their meets see lowlights for my thoughts about this stacey s dad has lost his job, so he tries to hang out with stacey all the time with the intensity level he had when he was a workaholic he comes to stoneybrook unannounced every day and tells stacey his plans to take her to fancy restaurants and such without ASKING her and she has a life outside him but doesn t know how to tell him that it s not always appreciated when he just shows up and whisks her away, not to mention how much he is pissing off her mom, who stacey now barely has time with stacey s dad also keeps buying really expensive and impractical things, like a car in spite of the fact that he lives in manhattan, now that he s unemployed when he tells stacey he got tickets to a u4me concert, she s super excited, especially since she had to leave in the middle the last time she tried to see u4me see Stacey and the Bad Girls but when she realizes it s on the same day as one of the mathlete final meets, she is torn she doesn t want to disappoint her dad, but she knows the mathletes need her eventually she tells her dad about the meet and he ends up going to cheer her on sms wins, and stacey becomes the top ranked mathlete in connecticut, or something maybe in the tri county area I don t even remember meanwhile, stacey was supposed to tutor lindsey dewitt in math but no longer has time to because of the mathletes claudia is the only one who has the time, but she thinks she s bad at math so she is reluctant but she ends up being asuccessful tutor than stacey ever could be, because she knows how to communicate with non math nerds about math and can make learning fun stacey s notes are incomprehensible, but claudia just explains concepts in bugs bunny s voice and lindsey learns the major subplot is that the bsc kids are all excitedly participating in the stoneybrook elementary school math fair, and.wait, what kids are EXCITEDLY participating in a MATH FAIR I guess math is in the air.highlights I always like any plotline where claudia feels smart, so I like that she s better at tutoring lindsey than stacey is OMG ALEXANDER KURTZMAN IS IN THE MATHLETES IT HAS BEEN SO LONG SINCE WE VE SEEN YOU, ALEXANDER KURTZMAN I VE MISSED YOU they even reference that he wears a tie and brings a briefcase to school he was apparently last referenced in Mary Anne and the Zoo Mystery though if I m wrong, please let me know that s only according to my records that I ve been keeping, which could definitely be wrong the head of the math department at stoneybrook day school is named reverty schmidt REVERTY SCHMIDT my partner and I have an inside joke where we call our cat all kinds of names that aren t his actual name his name is marvin and we call him melvin, michael, marlon, melba toast, molly ringwald etc now I know what we re gonna call him next vanessa pike s math fair booth has numbers written down that signify syllable combinations and then she writes poems using those syllable combinations I love one dimensional characters in this series some people consider it bad writing I consider it hilarious there s one girl at the math fair whose booth is about complicated math stuff and all the other kids feel like their booths suck by comparison but when an adult asks her a clarifying question, it becomes apparent that her parents basically made the whole booth for her and she didn t do anything HAHAHA the last puzzle stacey solves in the final mathlete meet is the same puzzle that gives lisa simpson so much guff in lisa the simpson lowlights nitpicks stacey only agrees to join the mathletes after kristy suggests she do it stacey had been scared kristy would say no, because kristy is inappropriately controlling of the other bsc members lives this book is just a rehashing of the plots in Stacey s Choice and Claudia s Friend with a little math thrown in the mathlete questions aren t math problems they re like professor layton puzzles I ve never been a mathlete, but I ve been a math nerd and have enjoyed media about mathletes such as freaks and geeks and mean girls, and I don t think they answer brain teaser style puzzles they answer legitimate math questions I find it unrealistic that stacey is so damned good at math that she s better than almost all of the kids who have been in the mathletes all along once again, speaking as a math nerd who was never part of math nerd cultureI probably could have joined the mathletes when I was in school, but I m sure the other mathletes would have been AT LEAST as good at math as I was, if not better stacey s dad is insufferable in this book he s such an entitled masculine rich piece of garbage he essentially demands that the women in his life do what he says, and then wastes all his money on purchases like lobster and luxury cars stacey s dad also is terrible at driving and parks at a meter because he claims garages are too expensive but then forgets to refeed the meter so he gets a ticket forthan the garage would have cost then later, he learns from his mistake and parks in a garage and he gets mad because he claims the valet scraped his car he s so annoying and smug and obnoxious the kids of sms are really into math they cheer on stacey and treat her like a celebrity, and they re excited about the math fair who are these stepford kids, and what have they done with the actual kids of stoneybrook no outfits snacks in claudia s room cheez doodles in her closet peanut mms in her closet ruffles behind her night table wheat thins in her closet

    Typical teenage dilemma solved in a typical way I always liked how Stacey was good at math but also fashion sensible and pretty as this provided for a nice mix of character.

    I loved this book as a kid, because I too was a nerdy type I was on the Academic Team and all it s various sub teams, so to see one of the girls pursue a smart and nerdy activity was great I was never that good at math, I wasarts minded, but I got by okay I liked especially that it was Stacey, who was always the snappy dresser and the boy crazy one, being the really smart girl leading the mathletes to victory.Her dad is a tool though That s a fact.

    I remember enjoying the math problems in this book as a child, even though I could never solve them To be honest, I m evenperplexed as an adult my math abilities obviously peaked when I was a kid Stacey was never one of my favourite BSC characters and this book isn t among one of the best in the series There are three main plots Stacey joining the Mathletes and helping them to win Stacey s dad losing his job and wanting to spend lots of time with her and Claudia taking over Stacey I remember enjoying the math problems in this book as a child, even though I could never solve them To be honest, I m evenperplexed as an adult my math abilities obviously peaked when I was a kid Stacey was never one of my favourite BSC characters and this book isn t among one of the best in the series There are three main plots Stacey joining the Mathletes and helping them to win Stacey s dad losing his job and wanting to spend lots of time with her and Claudia taking over Stacey s tutoring job The Mathletes storyline was nice as it showed that there wasto Stacey than boys and fashion, and I could understand Stacey s frustration at her dad only being in her life when he didn t have a job But truthfully, my favourite bit was Claudia teaching Lindsay to do maths and proving that you don t have to be a genius to tutor younger children All in all, the book covered a lot of issues but wasn t as compelling as some of the earlier books 8 10
