Mathematical Reasoning E (Grade 4)
Mathematical Reasoning Level E (Grade 4)
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.
Beyond Drill to Real Skills
Award-winning Mathematical Reasoning is a great place to start. With quick, straightforward problems to build mathematical reasoning skills, 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.

So far we are really enjoying this. There’s a lot of different types of math that gets covered and lots of good practice for us as a new homeschool family. Not common core which is AWESOME! Makes students use critical thinking. Love this!
Again, I will sing the praises of this curriculum. My twins have used this book for their 4th grade year and we are nearly done. I have ordered the next level already. I do sit with them and work problems with them to help them fully understand when needed. I love that it circles back now and again to reinforce lessons learned.
We have found the Mathematical Reasoning books to be a really fun way to work on math concepts. The colorful visuals are easy to understand and lend themselves to easy comprehension of the concepts presented.
I love the constant new and review of each topic. It reinforces each new idea.
I purchased this for my 9 year old, it is a nice supplement to our homeschool curriculum. It is nice as a reference point to where the grade levels are, and not so dense he gets bored. Will continue to use this series as the kids go through their education. Thank you!
