Mathematical Reasoning C (Grade 2)
Beyond Drill to Real Skills
Most parents know that a child who only memorizes math facts without really understanding math will find progressively complex concepts more and more difficult to understand. But what they erroneously think is that such problems arise about the time a child is memorizing the multiplication table. Not so. Unlike reading, an integral skill that is tightly woven throughout our entire day, math tends to be a more sporadic subject, essential when you need it and then easily set aside. That is why it is imperative that a child is able to reason his way through any mathematical problem.
Award-winning Mathematical Reasoning is a great place to start. With 293 pages of quick, straightforward problems to build mathematical reasoning skills in second-grade students, these highly motivational activities will take your child beyond mere drill work by using step-by-step, discussion-based problem solving. Concepts spiral gradually so that children do not forget as they go. The concepts are written to the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Non-reproducible.
Topics/activities include Action, Addition, Age, Analyze Data, Bar Graph, Calendar, Capacity, Circle Graph, Coins, Congruence, Coordinates, Count, Denominator, Division, Estimate, Expanded Notation (Place Value), Fraction, Hundreds, Inequalities, Language, Length, Likelihood, Line Graph, Manipulative, Match, Money, More Than 2 Addends, Multiplication, Number Line, Odd/Even, Ones, Order, Order of Operation, Pattern, Place Value (Expanded Notation), Polygon, Probability, Real World Problem, Regrouping (Borrowing and Carrying), Rounding, Ruler, Shapes, Survey, Symmetry, Table, Tens, Thermometer, Time, Variable, Weight, Whole Numbers.

Love this book as a review and follow up since my kids flew through the beta math book. Excellent learning tools.
My child loves this book and daily asks to do several more pages than is required.
The curriculum bright and colorful and has lots of fun activities. As we move into things that really need to be taught, I feel it’s more a supplement.
I love this book. Really makes my son have to critically think.
For us, this curriculum is a good balance of workbook and critical thinking. We like it’s variety and spiraling topics, which include fun puzzles. It is quick and easy to implement.
