Category Description for PROGRAMS - OTHER:

While offering some instruction, these programs include less teaching material or do not cover the full range of grade-level skills that the comprehensive programs offer.




Category Description for Mathematical Reasoning (Gr. PK-9):

At such an early age, mathematical reasoning begins with simple activities such as distinguishing between even or odd amounts and learning the ordinal numbers. This series is correlated to the NCTM standards and accordingly incorporates topics such as patterns, number concepts/number lines, graphs, fractions, probability, geometry, and problem solving, as well as basic operations. The full color activity sheets should especially appeal to the younger student. Not only are the illustrations eye-catching, but they do an excellent job of demonstrating mathematical representations and relationships. Although manipulatives are not required, a link to a virtual manipulative website is provided in case additional concrete level reinforcement is needed. A wide variety of exercises and activities are utilized to keep your child both interested and motivated. For instance, Thinker Doodles and Mind Benders activities from parent company Critical Thinking are scattered throughout.

Beginning 1 focuses on numbers 1-5 while Beginning 2 focuses on 0-10, and they are intended for use with 3 and 4 year olds. The concepts are presented in a spiral fashion, so students will see the concept repeated at different intervals throughout the book. In most cases, children who finish these first two books should be ready to tackle kindergarten math.

Books A through F are for grades kindergarten through 5th grade, and can be used as core math curriculum. We also like to recommend them as a critical thinking supplement for any math program that is light in that particular area. These books incorporate the same spiral approach found in the Beginning books. Level G has been added for 6th grade and goes beyond drill and practice. It incorporates discussion-based problem solving to prepare students for the reasoning required for upper-level math.

Book 2 of the original series, Mathematical Reasoning Through Verbal Analysis, can be used after the series as a supplement to your math curriculum. A more analytical or math reasoning approach is needed for higher level math and this book will help fill that need. This book can also be used as a reference and resource tool to fill in gaps. Since the book is nicely organized by "strands" (topics), and, additionally, into subtopics, you can easily find problem solving exercises to help repair any deficiency detected or an alternate way of teaching a concept (useful if your child has developed a case of "math block" to understanding a particular concept). Topics cover the entire realm of elementary math: understanding numbers, counting, sequencing, geometry, basic arithmetic operations, measurement, numerical comparisons (greater than, less than, equal to), and tables and graphs. The teacher's manual contains teaching suggestions and the answers. These books are reproducible for family use and range in length from 240-380+ pages.

This is a great program and my boys have enjoyed each book so far--even asking me to "do more math".

My son loved the CTC Level D/Gr 3 work text and wanted to continue with the same approach.

I've homeschooled for about 19 years now. I've used many math curriculums according to the various aptitudes of my kids. This series works well for the inquisitive child who learns things quickly. This series doesn't hand it on a platter but encourages exploration and intuition. He's on his 4th book in the series and I'm very pleased with his progress.

I took a look at this book at Hacil charter school and believe it will help my son with his math

Mathematical Reasoning Level E
My son enjoys the clear and short instructions with lots of color. A pro is the pages are not crammed with problems so there is plenty of room to work out problems on the pages. I do wish the pages were perforated as I need to remove them from the book. Although its a lot of pages and color, I do think it's a little high priced. Overall a good buy.

I purchased this book to complement Teaching Textbooks 5 which I am using with my son. I like the portability of the workbooks and he can choose sheets to work with as well when we are on a ride in the car.
