Publisher Description:

Forget boring math lessons and dreaded drill sheets. This fun, colorful 448-page book uses engaging lessons with easy-to-follow explanations, examples, and charts to make sixth grade mathematical concepts easy to understand. It can be used as a textbook or a comprehensive workbook with your textbook to teach the math skills and concepts that students are expected to know in sixth grade—and several concepts normally taught in seventh grade. This book emphasizes problem-solving and computation to build for success in higher-level math and math assessments. Every lesson is followed with a variety of fun, colorful activities to ensure concept mastery. The lessons and activities spiral slowly, allowing students to become comfortable with concepts, but also challenging them to continue building their problem-solving skills. This book teaches more than mathematical concepts; it teaches mathematical reasoning, so students learn to devise different strategies to solve a wide variety of math problems. It is written to the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

  • 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.

    How many pages make up one lesson (one day's work)?
    User on Jul 29, 2020
    BEST ANSWER: Approximately 2 pages per day.
    does mathematical resoning books come with a teacher's manual or answer key?
    A shopper on Jul 24, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: There’s no separated teacher’s menu. However, there’s brief instruction and example on each page. Student will be able to understand and do the work independently. The answer keys are included in the back of the book.

    I have used this curriculum with my children from preschool and have very much appreciated the balance between indroducing new topics and revisiting previous ones. The directions are short, to the point, easy to follow. There seems to be a good amount of practice problems without having it become monotonous. The colors and the switching from topic to topic with each page keeps the children engaged and wanting to do "one more page".

    We have used mathematical reasoning for years but decided to go with a different program last year. Big mistake! We had lots of tears so I have switched back and life is so much easier. This program just clicks with my daughter. It’s not overwhelming and the pages are fun for her. Love that it brakes up the devision so we are not doing those types of problems every single day.

    A nice change for math
    We are very happy with Mathematical Reasoning. We switched from Singapore Math because my girls were finding math monotonous. The full color pages are appealing, and the series finds ways to spark their interest. There is plenty of review throughout the book to master concepts, yet lessons are relatively short.
