Mathematical Reasoning D (Grade 3)
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 over 300 pages of quick, straightforward problems to build mathematical reasoning skills in third-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.

We really like this math work book! My son works on it in the mornings and it has done wonders with for his math skills.
Ordered the book workbook only. Awesome for my accelerated 2nd grader and a great review for my 4th grader!
This is a great supplement/extra practice to the 3rd grade math book we received with the Elite kit. If she needs a little more practice on certain areas, these pages are great for that and it's easy to just pick and choose a page or 2 when needed. Easy to follow, engaging pictures and problems with enough motivating challenge practice problems.
Great book for my 3rd grader to work on while I'm helping her sister with her math lesson! She enjoys it and I like how well rounded it is. Definitely a great choice!
My daughter is entering 3rd grade and we chose this as part of her curriculum kit for math. It has really nice pages that are illustrated and make the work fun. I like that the pages are perforated. To me, this seems like more of a supplement than a whole curriculum. I think certain concepts need more elaboration and instruction than this workbook provides. But I suppose a parent with more confidence in their teaching ability could make it work. In my case, I will likely use this along with free video lessons from elsewhere to go more in depth and make sure she really gets the concepts presented.
