Product Description:

This package includes the following items:

Publisher Description:

Math LightUnit 301 reviews concepts that should be adequately mastered in order to succeed in Math 300. It can be used as a diagnostic tool.

The remaining LightUnits review previously taught concepts in Math 200 and introduce new skills and concepts in incremental, continuously reviewed steps. We teach the metric system simultaneously with the U.S. system of measurement. Students acquire a full understanding of both systems.

Addition/subtraction flash cards and multiplication/division flash cards are required for this course. By the end of the course, students should have memorized the multiplication tables up to 10.

Each LightUnit incorporates a theme into its daily story problems, adding a practical component to math. Themes in Math 300 include insects, cooking, the ocean, and a family vacation to Yellowstone National Park.

The Teacher's Guide (sold separately) provides answers to the LightUnits, ideas, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests. Answer keys are optional if the Teacher's Guide is purchased.

Category Description for Christian Light Mathematics:

Math is foundational in so many areas of study and life, and Christian Light Mathematics helps lay that solid foundation. Packed with practice and review, Christian Light employs an incremental spiral approach in a workbook format. Each lesson incorporates a new concept and is followed by review of previously learned concepts. Written from a Christian worldview, every lesson reinforces Biblical values. The math courses in this series from grades 1-9 are the Sunrise edition of the series. The Sunrise Edition divides Light Units into daily lessons; two quizzes provide opportunity for application of skills learned; and formatting is clear and more appealing. Each level is one year of math at grade level and those implementing the program will need one set of 10 Light Units per student and a Teacher Guide(s) or answer key. At grades 1 and 2 the teacher guides are required and teacher guides are strongly recommended for grades 3 and 4. Each Light Unit contains student exercises and a test. The first Light Unit in grades 2-8 is a review of the previous grade. The Teacher Guides for grades 1-8 include teacher tips and student pages with answers and solutions. If you don't think you need the Teacher Guide, but want the answers at a quick glance, answer keys are available.

To help ensure students learn their math facts, daily speed drills, oral exercises, and flash-cards are tools used for students in grades 1-4. Basic algebraic and geometric concepts are introduced early, along with money, problem solving, mental math, and number patterns to help students become proficient in these skills. A few supplemental materials are needed for the lower grades Grade 1 uses addition and subtraction flash cards (#72144); My Counting Book (#72357); Counting Chart (#72173); and optional My Calendar Book (#21786); and student clock (#15339 or #60101); Grade 2 uses addition and subtraction flash cards (#72144); Counting Chart (#72173); and optional multiplication/division flash cards (#72356); My Calendar Book (#21786); student clock (#15339 or #60101); and math reference chart (#68518); Grade 3 uses optional flash cards as in 1st and 2nd grades, and the math reference chart. Grades 4, 5, and soon to be 6 (later in 2018) offer the option of using the Light Unit approach or text book approach same content but a choice of consumable or non-consumable.

If you choose the Light Units path, parents need only to purchase the Light Units and Teacher Guides or answer keys. If choosing the textbook path, then you will need the textbook (non-consumable), student pack (consumable), Teacher Guide and/or Full Solutions Answer Key. Textbooks are colorful with illustrations and pictures, and provide opportunity for students to do their work on a separate sheet of paper. The Student Pack includes quizzes, tests, and daily speed/mastery drills (math facts review) and measurement equivalents. Full Solutions Answer Key shows each problem of the textbook, quizzes, and tests with step-by-step solutions. Teacher Guides for the textbook are also in full color and include student pages with answers and a cd of printables posters, charts, and practice sheets.

The addition/subtraction flash cards accompanying this curriculum for grades 1-4 are numbered and tabbed to correspond to the teacher guides at those grade levels. Cards measure 3.5" x 7.5", addition/subtraction go from 0 to 18. Multiplication/division flash cards measure 3.5" x 5" and cover math facts from 0-12. The multiplication fact is on the front of the card with the opposite division fact on the reverse. These aren't numbered and tabbed like the addition/subtraction cards. Math Reference Charts are available for grades 2-6, 5-8, and 7/8. These are 8.5" x 11" laminated sheets for easy reference at a glance for those items that students need to remember but need a little help measurement tables, formulas, etc.

Grade 8 is considered pre-algebra and prepares students for any algebra 1 course. It introduces students to concepts needed at the higher levels of math such as Pythagorean theorem, irrational square roots, and basic trigonometry.

The sequence for high school is Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra II, and Functions and Trigonometry. To use Algebra I you will need the 10 Light Units (students write on their own paper), solution key (solutions to the Light Units exercises), tests & quizzes, and the test & quiz answer key. These are all sold separately for the Algebra I level. Geometry, Algebra II, and Functions and Trigonometry, each use 10 Light Units and 5 answer keys. Finishing through Functions and Trigonometry will prepare students for college level math.

Consumer Math is an optional math course offered in this series. Equivalent to one high school credit, this course applies math to everyday situations. There are 10 Light Units and 5 answer keys needed to complete the course and they cover basic and everyday math fractions, decimals, percent, family finances, construction & building trades, service occupations, transportation, business services, and occupational diagrams. ~ Donna

We've used CLE math through levels 200-600. It's a great program for students who need review or extra support in learning their math facts, measures, or counting money. I strongly recommend this program for students who need math remediation.

My son enjoyed the 2nd grade math so we are continuing on for 3rd grade.

CLE is the BEST math program! I feel that it really prepares the students for going into higher math, such as Algebra!
Charles P on Mar 28, 2021
My son was breezing through math from a different company, but not fully retaining what he was learning. I heard this would be a bit more challenging with plenty of practice to help him retain new information.

This set is worth a second glance! It is very high quality curriculum for a great price. The publishers are a blessing to our family and homeschool.

My daughter does so well with this math curriculum. Math is her biggest struggle and the spiral presentation of concepts works so well for her.

Loving this as a math supplement for my 2nd grader. She attends a school that uses Singapore Math, but she tends to forget concepts easily so I wanted something with spiral review built-in. She's been doing the Grade 2 books with success, so I'm ordering the next level.

It is an excellent program that is VERY affordable!
Anita T on Jul 5, 2019
We've used this program with several children. CLE math is great for children who need a tight spiral of review, extra practice in measurement and time, and who need drill work on math facts. You are always free to skip what is not needed in a particular lesson as material continues to be reviewed in future lessons. I particularly recommend this program for the remedial student, but it is solid and well-written for any child.

I've been using this for my son since he was in 1st grade, and this is just the next booklet set up. He is doing well with it.

Great spiral program; lower teacher involvement, higher student independence.
I'm using this math for my 5th grader. We were told this was an advanced program and that it's not unusual to have to go down a grade. My daughter tested into the 4th grade level, but since she doesn't have a strong sense of fractions, I chose to have her start around level 303-304. She goes through it quickly, as most of it is review for her (except fractions), and I'm sure by the end of this school year she'll be back to the 400 level.

I like how it's spiral, bc my kids need the review. I don't know if it's true or not, but when I was looking into Saxon,, I was told this program is comparable, but like the more "enjoyable" version of Saxon. We did more mastery based math programs before (Math U See, Ray's Aritmetic) but nothing was sticking. They kept forgetting what they learned. Ray's is excellent for mental math, but being a new homeschooler, I really needed a teacher guide with plans and answers to problems. MUS I'm sure is great for many, but it's too teacher intensive for me, and I realized after using it I'm more comfortable teaching how I learned math (more traditionally), and for my kids, they felt there were a lot of extra steps and were bored/ frustrsted with how long it took.

I would only turn to a unique program if the traditional method wasn't working for my student. So far CLE has been great, and the traditional method is working for us. I like the the very doable one on one time at the beginning of each lesson (only about 15 minutes), and then my student will do the rest of the lesson on their own. I like how thr program is broken down into smaller workbooks, which makes it feel less overwhelming, and gives thr student a sense of completion/ accomplishment at the end of each one.

I bought the whole 300 set and just had my student take the tests found in each workbook until she didn't pass the fractions section. Like I said earlier, she would easily be in the 400 level, but it's just the fractions I wanted her to learn. So, even if she got the rest of the test right, if she "failed" the fractions part (getting most of them wrong), I would start her in that booklet.

Overall we're very happy with CLE and my kids are enjoying math (as much as one can enjoy it!). ?? I feel more confident that my kids are becoming more proficient in their memorization of math facts and seem to have a better retention of what they learn.

Very solid math program
I love this math program. My kids love competing against theirselves in the math drill portion and tracking their progress. They enjoy the counting challenges daily. They love when they pass a pretest and get to skip the lesson. I love how affordable it is and that it's broken down into units so they feel accomplished throughout the year

We are loving this curriculum. A little bit of a lot of subjects , so even if one part is hard for him, it moves quickly. And he’s loving learning geometry.
