Product Description:

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.

Publisher Description:

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.

Category Description for Math Lessons for a Living Education:

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

Life of Fred doesn't seem to stick, looking for another Charlotte Mason type approach to math
User on Sep 10, 2019
Have been looking for something that is all in one book (instructions, practice, etc) and with which my student can have some independence. This sounds much more like a program for homeschooling and one-on-one instruction as opposed to classroom and following along in textbooks.

I have not tried this math, but it appeals to me because there are less problems on each page to allow those with fine motor skill challenges room to work. I also like the real life approach.

We love the history curriculum from this publisher and are looking forward to trying the Math.

Looking foward to the next level up. Our son loves this so far after being burnt out on a different math book. This appeals to his imagination and love of travel and food. Good hands-on opportunities too with making a poster, cooking, etc.

We used level 3 last year & loved the style of the book. Very interactive with a continuing story. Application is big. My kids loved the story & activities.

We have used this curriculum for our boys last year and it is a fun and gradual way to have math in daily activities as well as learning well.
Heather L on Apr 17, 2019
My fourth grader has complete the MFLE book 3. My son has enjoyed the gentle, yet thorough approach to math. He enjoys math everyday. Previously, we had used Singapore Math. While it is a great curriculum, it is more advanced and left my son disliking math and not understanding everything he had studied. MFLE has been what he needed!
Melinda H on Feb 26, 2019
The reviews made it sound like a simple straight forward math curriculum. My son struggles if he feels overwhelmed.
Jennifer P on Feb 21, 2019
Great curriculum for my 9 year old that gets really overwhelmed with math that has a lot of problems on a page. She loves to read the stories and then do the math problems related to the story.
Jana D on Jan 17, 2019
We use this curriculum with two of our children, and another child just asked if he could switch to it. He is excited to try it out!

Charlotte mason, seems good
Meredith H on Sep 10, 2018
We just finished the level before and loved it! It is the perfect mix of self guidance/entertainment/kinesthetic/ AMAZING math! My kids never complained about math and it moved them methodically through the standards easily. I will say, I don't like it until level 3. Before then it was just too much writing for little kids.
Katie M on Sep 5, 2018
i've used levels 2 and 3 and it seems to be a good fit for both me and my children.

My daughter started with Level 1 in K and enjoys the story line. It has given her a good math foundation.

Math + Charlotte Mason! What else is there to say :) Totally answers the age old question, "When will I ever use this in the real world?"
Tiffany H on Jun 20, 2018
Looks like it will be a nice fit for our family. Also love that its affordable!

I want to try this with my oldest daughter because she is very story oriented and I am trying to get her to be more independent in her studies.
Samantha H on Aug 22, 2016
I really liked the layout, ease, and clarity of book 2, and only had to supplement a bit. Therefore I had to buy 3, 4, 5! Let's hope we love them all the same! :)

Math Lessons for a Living Education Level 1
BEST ANSWER: It's been awhile so my memory might not be 100% accurate but from what I recall the book is divided into 36 "lessons". Each lesson is divided into 5 days - so 1 lesson per week. Day 1 has a story to go along with the lesson so it might be 2/3 minutes longer than the other days - but I'd say on average you could do each days work in 10-20 minutes depending on how in depth you want to go and on how easily the child picks up the material (also depending on what it is - some concepts might require more teaching than others). You could certainly do more than 1 days worth on one day a week and then do less on the other days if you wanted to.
Is there a placement test for math lessons for a living education?

BEST ANSWER: Hi,
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

Can't settle for less
After doing Saxon Math we can't settle for less. I bought this book based on good reviews from this and multiple other websites. Although, I absolutely love that it's a Christian Math book and they're not afraid to speak of God. But the lesson stories have no correlation with the actual work that they're doing, new concepts are randomly thrown in. My son is in 3rd grade, last year we did Saxon Math 3, although he excelled in math K, 1st and 2nd grade I wanted something less intensive this year due to our circumstances but this book brought so much frustration to both him and me, we just simply can't go on. Going back to my old and faithful Saxon Math but ONLY first or second edition. Notice the 3rd edition has been edited "dumbed" down to fit the common core standards for public schools.
August 28, 2019
Finally!
After trying four different approaches/programs over the last few years I think we've finally found the right fit for our family with this!
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.

Wonderful Math Book
My daughter thanked me for getting her this math book. She tells me daily how much she enjoys it. So much so that she is actually doing more per day than is on the handy schedule in the front of the book. She looks forward to doing math instead of dreading it like last year. I like that it follows one family and that you care about the characters in the story so you look forward to each new lesson. Also, it reinforces what you learn in previous chapters.
