#### Publisher Description:

Teach your child/students over half of the basic multiplication and division facts in just 2-3 weeks! Offering "step-by-step" instruction and lots of varied and interesting practice, this book will guide students to mastery and speed. After learning to multiply, students are shown and taught the commutative property of multiplication (reversible multiplication) which cuts the number of facts to be memorized nearly in half. Division is taught, and students are encouraged to learn facts in fact families (2x3=6, 3x2=6, 62=3, 63=2) tying the division facts to the previously learned addition facts. New facts are "hooked" to facts students have already mastered making new material easy to learn. Numbered multiplication and division flashcards are included. Throughout the book various drills and exercises are presented to vary the flashcard practice. A timed quiz at the end of each section encourages both speed and accuracy. Certificates at the end of the book provide individual awards and proof of learning

Category Description for Step-by-Step Math:

Combining instruction with practice and throwing in some mnemonic devices for good measure, this is easily one of the best math fact mastery systems that I've seen. Starting from the premise of the commutative property of addition (a.k.a. fact families) and building from easiest to remember facts to harder and harder, each book offers page after page of quick instruction tips plus illustrated problems as well as horizontal, vertical, number line and wheel practice. Along the way, lots of little tricks are introduced to help the child remember "his" facts. Color-coded flashcards (pull-apart cardstock) are added to the mix and used for daily drill. The books provide 135 pages of practice that cover basic addition and subtraction facts (0-9) or basic multiplication and division facts (again, 0-9). These pages are reproducible for classroom use and are followed by a reduced-page answer key. [The reduced pages are helpful for quickly correcting the fact pages.] The two sets of flashcards make up the rest of the spiral-bound book. Each book includes a certification of completion for each of its sets of facts (i.e. addition/subtraction or multiplication/division).

What makes these books notable is the combination of techniques that will make it easy for any type of learner to master these facts. Whether you're using a Singapore approach program that slides by fact memorization or have just noticed that your student needs a little extra work in this area, these books will provide a good mastery option. Since these are published by the Summerbook Company, it bears mentioning that they might make an excellent summer project. ~ Janice
