As the name suggests, this sturdy balance scale uses buckets instead of pans. Measures both solids and liquids, and the transparent buckets are removable for easy cleaning. Colorful scale is made of durable plastic, and there's even a storage drawer in the base. Less expensive than the pan balance, with more features. The deep buckets hold approximately 300 ml, with markings every 50 ml, for measuring. Also features sliding compensators. 16½”x 6½”x 6”
Explore basic measurement concepts. This balance is perfect for measuring, exploring volume, and comparing solids and liquids. Calibrated clear buckets with removable lids hold solids or up to 400 ml of liquid and allow students to see what they have placed inside. Easy pour spout makes measuring liquids easy. Buckets remove easily for emptying and the buckets' lids can be used as platforms. Features a built-in storage drawer perfect for storing weights. Child-friendly, balance is sturdy enough to withstand years of hands-on measurement. Build observation and estimation skills while gaining a deeper understanding of mass measurement. Balance measures 16½L x 6½W x 6H. Looking for something to measure? Our Three Bear Family® Counters (LER 0744) make the perfect companion to this balance. Grades PreK+.
The Teacher's Manual contains the actual lesson plans and information vital to the effective presentation of math concepts. The consumable Meeting Books are used during the teacher-student "meeting" in which concepts are introduced, demonstrated and practiced. If teaching more than one student at the same level, you will only need one meeting book. Consumable Student Workbooks are used in grades 1-3 only and contain student materials, flash cards and practice pages. The Math K Home Study Kit contains teacher edition and meeting book. Math 1, 2, and 3 kits contain teacher edition, meeting book, and a set of 2 workbooks. Manipulatives are a vital, integral part of the program; these are not included in the Home Study Kits, but are available through us also.
Students like Saxon because they feel successful in math instead of overwhelmed.
The most popular homeschooling math program hands down! Highly recommended by both Mary Pride and Cathy Duffy, Saxon Math also wins our award for the "Most Requested Text." Saxon math is a "user-friendly" math program - even for Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus and other usually difficult math topics. Learning is incremental and each new concept is continuously reviewed, so the learning has time to "sink in" instead of being forgotten when the next topic is presented. Higher scores on standardized tests and increased enrollments in upper-level math and science classes have resulted where Saxon has been used in public schools. Students like Saxon because they feel successful in math instead of overwhelmed. Because of the format, children are able to work more independently.
