Volume 1 of the Learn Math Fast System will teach your students how to master addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division before advancing to fractions. Students are given several lessons, worksheets, and timed tests to ensure they have mastered each concept. Whether the student is a beginner or an older student struggling in math, everyone should start with Volume I. We avoid putting a grade level on each book because giving a Seventh Grader a math book that's labeled 'First Grade' is damaging to their self esteem. Instead, we have intelligent looking books that anyone would be proud to carry. Besides, everyone should start with Volume I. Even adults will learn how to add and subtract in their heads, like never before. Volume I is 8 1/2" x 11" paperback book with 277 pages. Inside you'll find 49 lessons andworksheets, 4 Chapter Review Tests, a Final Test and all answers. Older students can complete this book in 4 - 6 weeks. Younger students will take 2 - 9 months to complete. Other topicsincluded are: place value, greater/less than, rounding, long division,multiplying and dividing with decimal numbers, averages, and US measurement. Comparable to 1st through 3rd grade material. Includes one Big, Big Bookmark. This full-size waterproof bookmark contains all the most easily forgotten math concepts in one handy place; your bookmark.
Looking for a streamlined curriculum with targeted goals spanning from beginning math to High School Geometry? The title’s fast highlights this 7-volume 2nd edition curriculum’s goal: to develop students who can quickly produce automatic, confident responses to math problems. This mastery-based program presents math concepts in a sequential manner. Topically arranged, each of these un-graded levels handles multiple concepts and can be used by multiple ages as a supplement or stand-alone. More mastery-based, this program can help shore up math skills or help struggling learners who are behind in levels. No matter your student’s grade, the author recommends starting at Level 1. However, free placement tests are available from the publisher’s website to either complete online or print. (http://learnmathfastbooks.com/placement-test-i.html) Level 1 contains 4 instruction pages for using the overall program with different aged learners. No teacher guide is available; answers and detailed solutions (which vary based on level) are included in the back of each book.
Each softcover book includes detailed lessons written in a conversational—and sometimes humorous—style at a 3rd-4th grade reading level. At the lower levels, topics are introduced using a few different methods including tips and shortcuts and using U.S. coins as manipulatives. Concepts are taught, a practice worksheet follows, and then there is a timed test. Students practice until they feel confident on the concept and complete the test before moving on to the next concept. At higher levels, students are taught the concept and complete a worksheet, with the possibility of repeated practice through free worksheets. All levels include chapter tests and a final review test. Geometry requires a manipulative kit, included in the set.
Students can write in the book but it is designed as a non-consumable and unlimited downloads of worksheets are available at the publisher’s web site with the included code.
Supplemental materials include a water- and tear-proof, 8.5x11” Big, Big Bookmark which serves as a reference guide of main math concepts for all books. For Geometry (2nd ed), the Smart Cards include four 3”x 6 1/2” postulate cards; 5 smart cards to review rules for angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons and circles; a form to make a cube; and a pencil. The Geometry Kit (contained in a zippered vinyl pouch with 3-hole punch) is a simple, helpful set that includes 15 1-inch foam squares; a 1-inch plastic ball; protractor and two kinesthetic cards which help teach Pi; a square foot paper; a formula card; a square, rectangle, and one each of an equilateral, right triangle, and isosceles triangle cards with helpful reminders printed on one side. Books range from 148-348 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth
