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 fifth 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 fifth grade—and several concepts normally taught in sixth 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.

We tried several math curriculums including Saxon and Math U See. This series from Critical Thinking Company really turned the light on for my son. We used this through upper elementary. The lessons are like puzzles and activities with fun and engaging graphics that kids love.

I enjoy this program because it seems to have a nice balance between practicing a new skill without belaboring it. It keeps the student moving; the next page usually always brings a different skill/type of problem to practice.

Is this a WORKBOOK? Can we write in this?
A shopper on May 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is an all in one book. The instructions are all in the book, the work is done in the book and the answers are in the book. I loved this book as a summer program but didn’t find it to be comprehensive enough as a full program. It was enjoyable and my daughter did it without any fuss.
In what level do these books begin to have both the hard cover textbook and workbook?
Lisa on Jul 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think you may be confusing this series with some other program. These books continue as softcover workbooks throughout their levels.
Where do students work their answers?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In the book. It's consumeable.

Very Helpful Supplement
My son was in the midst of Algebra 1 when I realized that there were some gaps in his prior math understanding, particularly fractions. We decided to get this book as a supplement instead of a full curriculum. Because he's in 8th grade, this is a fun, colorful, relatively easy book. He really enjoys it, plus we're doing an incentive of $0.15 per page for him to work it concurrently with Algebra 1 and through the summer. It is a self-teaching book and does a very good job of filling those gaps. The pages have a lot of variety, which keeps his interest. As his teacher, I'm very happy with it.

And, as usual, the big plus of ordering through Rainbow Resource is the shipping is done with love - the products always arrive intact!
