Math-It (includes Guide Book in PDF format)
Math-It actually consists of several different learning drill "games"- called "Addit," "Dubblit," and "Timzit" accompanied by audio CD instructions, the Math-It Guide Book and a very helpful guide entitled “How Stevie Learned His Math.” It includes the inspiring story of how the author used these same techniques to teach a young boy how to master addition and multiplication. The guides are both on CD-ROM, in .pdf format. The games use pre-punched sets of color coded cards and boards to place them on. By practicing with these (using techniques described in the book) until they are mastered (able to be easily placed in less than a minute), children learn their facts cold. The ‘extras’ in the last chapter in the book go beyond the basics, giving fourteen more useful activities and mental tricks to increase math prowess. The additional student pack contains all the cards, storage envelopes, instructions and the playing surface for Addit, Dubblit and Timzit. Helpful if your original set has seen better days and you still have children left to go through the program.
Wonderful activity-based program to help your kinesthetic learner master the facts! A combination of mental math "tricks" (ie, to add nine to any number, count one back and add "teen") or shortcuts and hands-on drill. These really work. After going through the various levels, your student should have those facts and shortcuts to basic operations down cold!
I am working on Addit with one child and Timzit with another. We are impressed with the program and don't even really use it they way they suggest...I mean to say we take a much more relaxed approach.
Once the kids get really good at addition subtraction comes much easier. Math It helps with memorizing the math facts but it's nice to have the theory and application practice to know why we use it. That is where another math program comes in handy. I use Math-u-see and love it but there are a lot of other great ones out there. Xtramath (online) is there to help with math facts and it also goes over subtraction.
