Math Lessons for a Living Education: Level 4 with Answer Key
In Book 4 the family travels through the United States. The twins and friends learn about landmarks, Americas heroes, and work in their garden as they review concepts from Book 3 and do further work with larger numbers, metric measurement, decimals, operations with equivalent fractions, and more. Math Fact Reviews are incorporated into the lessons so that students won't forget foundational math information.
We often tend to compartmentalize subjects when teaching. However, real life doesn't serve up problems or issues in neat, subject-labeled situations! The Math Lessons for a Living Education curriculum teaches math through a blend of stories, copy work, oral narration and hands-on activities, showing how math is used in "real life"---just like a living math book! Thirty-six weeks of instruction guide students through the content, story, and hands-on activities using inexpensive manipulatives provided/made by the parent.
This book is written to be used by teachers and students together. It includes a suggested weekly schedule (30 minutes per lesson, 5 days per week, 36 weeks) with easy-to-manage lessons that include reading, worksheets, and assessments. Pages are perforated and three-hole-punched so that parents can easily tear out, hand-out, and store pages. Students will read the pages in the book and complete the corresponding section provided by the teacher. Assessments are given at regular intervals. Answer keys are available online.
This fourth-grade resource features the continuing story of twins Charlie and Charlotte, who are learning that life is full of learning opportunities! As students read, they'll be drawn into an adventure that teaches them about fractions and geometry, among other skills.
Covering one year of 4th grade math, by the end of the course students will have reviewed what they've learned in previous grades, and learned about new fraction concepts, metric units of measurement, basic geometry, and averaging.
Grade 4. 350 pages. Perfect Bound with Perforated 3-Hole Punched Pages.
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.
What is a living education? Living education is the real-life application of the things you learn. When this approach is applied to math, it is not taught in a vacuum; rather, mathematical concepts are integrated into everyday situations. This is the Charlotte Mason approach to education, and Angela ODell, author of this curriculum, has captured the spirit of the methodology in this easy-to-use series. Math is taught through the adventures of a brother and sister, Charlie and Charlotte, and their family. Books are designed to be consumable but are not reproducible, and answer keys are downloadable with the link provided in each book. Levels are designed to be one-year courses and each has 36 lessons. Books feature a suggested daily schedule at the beginning with a grid for completion and grading built in. Although the books are
Yes there is a placement test and we are in the process of uploading it to our website. In the meantime, here is a link from Master Books http://www.masterbooks.com/downloads/dl/file/id/750/product/2735/math_lessons_for_a_living_education_placement_tests.pdf
For my youngest (level 1 and now 2) I read the lesson and we walk through it together, my three readers are able to do the lessons mostly on their own. (Levels 2, 3 and 4).
Level 4 has an improved answer key that is much more teacher friendly (and therefore very appreciated!) I hope they transition all of the volumes to this format.
