Mathematical Reasoning B Grade 1
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 312 pages of quick, straightforward problems to build mathematical reasoning skills in first-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, Bar Graph, Calendar, Capacity, Count, Fractions, Language, Length, Likelihood, Manipulative, Match, Money, Number Line, Odd/Even, Order, Pattern, Probability, Real World Problems, Shapes, Subtraction, Symmetry, Temperature, Time, Weight, and Whole Numbers.

MATHEMATICAL REASONING LEVEL B
"...What a blessing! Bubble Gum Taffy, who is 5 and in Kindergarten has been working her way through this book designated more for 1st grade/6 year olds. I don’t consider Bubble Gum Taffy to be exceptionally bright, but this book sure is! It’s so gentle, so non-assuming, but completely able to teach concepts that she was having difficulty with prior. My only complaint about the book is it’s binding, she had a little trouble writing on the page that didn’t open all the way. This could easily fixed with a quick book-chop at the local print shop though!I wasn’t sure about the price of this book and if this book alone would be enough for a math curriculum, but I can see that I was wrong on both accounts, well worth the money and plenty enough for a years worth of learning!..."
