Product Description:

CalcuLadder 6 includes English & metric units and geometric concepts. There are 16 drill masters for each level plus answer keys and an award certificate. Also included is the Super Slate which allows the student to insert a master sheet, cover it with a plastic overlay and complete the drill using a regular #2 pencil. Then the teacher can flip the master sheet and easily grade the drill sheet. The plastic overlay sheet is quickly cleaned with a small bit of petroleum jelly. The Slate has a bit of a homespun look and you could substitute a dry-erase pocket for the Slate.

Fractions and Decimals Review, Percents, English and Metric Units, Geometric Concepts

Turn Finger-Counters into Number-Crunchers with CalcuLadder! CalcuLadder has been Homeschoolers' favorite math drills for over 30 years! A million parents and kids have used CalcuLadder, written by homeschool dad and rocket scientist, Dr. Ed Myers Ph.D. From basic math through pre-algebra,CalcuLadder drills build speed and accuracy. CalcuLadder may be used as needed at any grade level along with any math curriculum.

CalcuLadder® 6 includes drill Levels 81 - 96. These CalcuLadder® drill master sheets are accompanied by the amazing SuperSlate, which allows you to use the drill sheets repeatedly. The SuperSlate features a plastic transparent overlay, on which the student writes his/her answers with a regular #2 pencil or mechanical pencil. Flip the drill worksheet over to see the QuicKey for immediate scoring. Simply wipe off the overlay with a tissue and petroleum jelly, so your students can use the drill sheets over and over without ever having to print or reproduce new drill sheets!

After reviewing fractions and decimals, CalcuLadder 6 covers percents, and how percents, decimals, and fractions work together. It then goes into English units of length (inch, foot, yard, rod, furlong, mile, fathom), weight (ounce, pound, ton), and volume (teaspoon, tablespoon, fluid ounce, cup, pint, quart, gallon, peck, bushel). Very useful for cooking and practical know-how! Metric units of length, volume, mass, and temperature are also covered, as well as how to convert between English and Metric units. Even Roman numerals are covered! The final three Levels cover geometric concepts and terminology relating to plane figures, plus finding the area of simple shapes and measuring land area in acres. Use CalcuLadder 6 in Grades 6, 7, 8, or higher.

MasterPaks are more economical for those parents who know they are going to use multiple levels of the CalcuLadder® program. MasterPak 1 includes the masters of CalcuLadder® 1, 2, and 3 with ReadyWriter; MasterPak 2 includes the masters of CalcuLadder® 4, 5, and 6 with AlphaBetter. These sets also come with the SuperSlate. ReadyWriter covers basic penmanship (letter strokes) and AlphaBetter practices alphabetical order, alphabetizing skills, and dictionary skills.


Do you remember CalcuLadder® in their print version? Well, they're back!! Every level of CalcuLadder® is available again with the addition of a handy new feature that allows you to use the drill sheets repeatedly - the SuperSlate. The SuperSlate is a reusable, transparent overlay that fastens firmly over your drill sheet that has been placed on the base. Use only a #2 pencil or mechanical pencil with an HB lead to write answers to the drill problems. Flip the sheet over to check your answers, then clean the overlay with a bit of petroleum jelly and dry cloth or tissue. The drill pages are the same as those that used to be in print and are also found in the CalcuPak product. CalcuLadder 1 is basic addition and subtraction, 2 is advanced addition/subtraction and basic multiplication, 3 covers advanced multiplication and basic division, 4 includes advanced division, estimation, basic fractions, and decimals, 5 is intermediate and advanced fractions, and 6 includes percents, English and Metric units, geometric concepts, and review of fractions and decimals.

MasterPaks are more economical for those who know they are going to use multiple levels of the CalcuLadder® program.

Category Description for CalcuPaks / Calculadders:

These are great - painless, quick, easy to take and good for you - no wonder they're called "Learning Vitamins." These are designed to get the brain working quickly and automatically - a must before going into higher-level math! We have seen marked improvement in our children's computational speed and skill after using these. Advantages over other drill sheets we've seen (and used) are the sheer variety in the sheets and the incremental level of difficulty from one sheet to the next. Cute graphics "grow" up the margins of the page as students progress, adding to the visual appeal, and an appropriate scripture verse is a definite plus (if you're drilling several students, the ones who finish ahead can meditate on something worthwhile!).

Originally printed as a workbook with 12 copies of 16 individual master worksheets, students completed one page each day until they reached the target speed. Then, they moved on to the next worksheet and repeated the process. The target speed might be reached after completing two or three worksheets or it might take a student the entire 12 to reach the speed goal. Although the print versions of the Calculadders have gone out of print, the publisher has transitioned their successful drill program to either a computer-based option (CalcuPaks) or the Super-Slate (an interesting and somewhat uniquely designed re-mark system) that uses a single master copy of each drill sheet.

Calculadders have six levels which take the student through basic math - addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, telling time, fractions, percents, and decimals. These roughly correspond to elementary grade levels but can be used whenever needed. ReadyWriter provides practice in basic letter strokes and would be used prior to a formal handwriting program. AlphaBetter helps students speed up their alphabitizing skills.

I have used the workbooks in the past. Drill is important for both learning and long-term retention of facts.

Is there a description for this item? I am looking for Calculadder 6 workbook. Is this it?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This item provides the same content as the Calculadder 6 workbook. The workbook included multiple sheets of a number of different fact worksheets. The Drill Masters are a collection of the masters of those worksheets. The SuperSlate is a vinyl sleeve that allows those masters to be completed with various utensils including pencils and then be cleaned off so the Slate (and Master) can be used again.
