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 282 pages of quick, straightforward problems to build mathematical reasoning skills in preschoolers, 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.


Table of Contents/Skills include: Addition, Application, Counting, Fractions, Language, Logic, Manipulative, Match, Order, Pattern, Shape, and Subtraction.

Great for basic math, highly suggest getting #1 before this (#2) if you child is new to numbers and match concepts. But great tool for parents to understand areas where their child needs more instruction

Makes her think

I like this. It is good for basic math but makes her take on harder problems. I love that as we go through it she is able to figure out real life concepts. It is well done.

Love the mathematical reasoning series

We loved this book and Book 1 so much that we bought the Kindergarten one as well. I think 1 & 2 are the best though and wish we had moved onto Math-U-See instead after this one because I think they are ready for real math lessons upon completing 1 & 2.

If you are trying to decide which book to get, Book 1 is better for children just learning to count to 5, and still working on their shapes. Book 2 is better for kids who have a solid sense of 1-5 and shapes and are ready for bigger numbers.

Mathematical Reasoning Beginning 2

My son learned a lot from working through this book. However, I will not be using it with my next son as I think that a less workbooky approach is better for young students. I recommend Preschool Math at Home by Kate Snow.

Leah, Thank you for sharing! Different products work better for different children. Isn't it wonderful to be able to customize your child's curriculum to best suit their learning style? --Hope
Mathematical reasoning

This is a fun book that my 5 yr old would breeze through in one day if I would let her.
