Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Understanding analogies and the ability to reason analogically (reasoning used to identify, evaluate, and solve an analogy) are important problem-solving skills. Problem-solving is an essential part of mathematical development. Analogies teach students to break problems down into their component parts, making it easier to recognize familiar formats that enable students to produce solutions.

The Level 4 Math Analogies provides students with the opportunity to develop and sharpen their reasoning skills and powers of abstraction against the backdrop of a rich tapestry of mathematical content. The analogies in this book are designed around the grade-appropriate standards identified by the National Council of Teaching Mathematics.

Category Description for Math Analogies (Critical Thinking Co.):

Math lends itself nicely to analogous thinking; much of math is about finding patterns, seeing relationships, and problem-solving. Most analogy books concentrate just on relationships between words; these are unique in their application of analogy to all areas of math: number and operations; algebra; geometry; measurement; data analysis and probability. It's a different way of looking at and practicing vital math concepts while also working on logic and reasoning skills. Books are available at three levels, have 38 pages of exercises, and include an answer key at the back. Exercises are mostly pictorial and numeric - especially in the K-1 book - so very little reading is needed. Most children will find this an enjoyable way to combine logic and math skills; children who enjoy puzzles will appreciate them even more!
