Mathematical Reasoning Grades 2-4 Supplement
Develop Math Reasoning Skills
If you want to continue using your current math program, but need to develop math reasoning skills in your 2nd- to 4th-grade student, then the Mathematical Reasoning Grades 2-4 Supplement is for you.
Learn to Reason Through Math Problems
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.
Concept Comprehension, Not Fact Memorization
The focus of the Mathematical Reasoning Grades 2-4 Supplement is not to teach your students arithmetic facts or skills, but rather to develop in them the ability to apply analytical and reasoning skills to a wide variety of mathematical concepts. Throughout these activities you will build logical, analytical, investigative, and explanatory skills, and explore quantitative and spatial relationships, an essential foundation for mathematical understanding. Wouldn't you like for your student to not merely solve math equations, but comprehend them?

Ordered this for my 1st grader to supplement his other math. He is liking it so far! Only wish the book was colorful like the first grade addition.
We started homeschooling last year and it took me so much time looking online for free worksheets. Not only was it time consuming and very difficult to find worksheets in order, I spent crazy amounts of money on ink just to print out these unorganized worksheets. I needed something already put together and organized properly and also would save me money on ink. When I found the Mathematical Reasoning books I could not wait to try them out. My girls love them and I couldn't be happier! With over 300 pages so well organized, it made everything easier for me. I use them as a supplement with the Teaching Textbooks.
