Math 4 Today

All > Mathematics > GENERAL PRACTICE / REVIEW / APPLICATION > General Practice / Review / Application Workbooks > Math 4 Today

Not drills, these are comprehensive reviews of essential math skills and concepts that take about 10 minutes per day. The books for grades 2-5 each contain four problems a day for four days, covering a 40-week period. A separate, ten-problem test is provided for the fifth day of each week. Answer keys for drills and tests are included in all books. The problems are sequenced to complement your math curriculum, increasing in difficulty from beginning to end. Unlike a drill product, they cover all grade-level math topics and concepts are repeated weekly. These books were created to provide ongoing, cumulative review of math skills, much like the philosophy behind the Saxon Math series. Most other basal texts introduce and practice math concepts, then go on to the next skill, abandoning previously-taught concepts until the next pass, or in occasional reviews. I would strongly recommend them to parents who are not using Saxon Math, as an expedient way to help your child retain and practice math skills on an ongoing basis.

One look at the scope and sequence chart provided will assure you that the program is, indeed, comprehensive. In fact, you can use this program also as a diagnostic tool to detect areas in which your math program is weak, or concepts that your child has not completely mastered, regardless of your basal program. Or use the book during the summer, between grades, to keep math skills fresh for next year and avoid extensive beginning-of-the-school-year review. Topics covered in the books include, but are not limited to, arithmetic operations on decimals/fractions/whole numbers, percents, word problems, measurement, area/perimeter/volume, algebraic expressions, and properties (associative, commutative). The series has been recently aligned to Common Core standards and now includes a reference chart at the beginning of each book to show where each standard is covered.
