Mathematical Reasoning Middle School Supplement
Develop Math Reasoning Skills
If you want to continue using your current math program, but need to develop math reasoning skills in your middle school student, then the Mathematical Reasoning Middle School 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 Middle School 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?

I realize by middle school most curriculums are using more of a textbook approach. However, my two daughters REALLY struggled when I tried to have them use a math textbook. So I was so excited to find this curriculum that continued the Workbook format into the middle school Math Concepts. Thank-you Timberdoodle!
Too early to make a determination. So far it looks promising for our purpose.
