 Timberdoodle's review

 Mathematic skills practiced include: multi-digit addition and subtraction 1-, 2-, and 3-digit multiplication 1-, 2-, and 3-digit divisors time and money fractions decimals and percents reading and interpreting graphs and charts average, mode, range area, perimeter and volume logic linear measurement weight and capacity Cookie Recipes & Allowance Whether your children realize it or not, they use math every day, from doubling the cookie recipe to banking their allowance. But mention word problems and most children recoil. Word problems are designed to show that the mathematical principles your children are learning are related to the mathematical problems they will encounter in real life. Repeated, Daily Exposure Most math textbooks emphasize rote drillwork. But real life applications, the most important part of any subject matter, are often overlooked. Yet even if a math curriculum includes the national norm of about 10% word problems, most children benefit greatly from repeated, daily exposure. With just minutes a day, Daily Word Problems will help your children apply mathematical knowledge to analyze and solve real-world problems. Mimicking Real Life The hardest thing about doing word problems is taking the words and translating them into the math equation, so though the use of interesting themes, charts, and graphs, Daily Word Problems will help your child see patterns to solving these types of problems. Daily Word Problems' inclusion of diverse word problems to mimic the problems faced in the real world will help your children to understand that no matter what occupation they choose, they will need math.

I worked on the whiteboard while they worked on their worksheets. This 5 minute (or less) exercise requires the boys to use logic and critical thinking applied to daily life situations, and remind them that yes, they WILL need to use this in real life..."

 Good thinking skills January 14, 2013 Reviewer: Robyn
I love that this books makes you think. Most times you have to do 2 or more calculations to come up with the answer. It's nice that there is just a little bit to do each day.

 Great supplemental resource May 31, 2012 Reviewer: Amy G
I bought this book for a public-schooled student I was helping with math. She was in the 9th grade, and she knew her math facts, but she had very little grasp on when to use multiplication, division, etc. This workbook provides an easy way to give students who don't have enough experience with word problems or actually using math in real life that experience they need so that they can really understand what math is for. The daily problems don't take too long (although Friday's problems can sometimes take ten minutes or more), and they cover a wide variety of topics. I have recommended this book to several friends since getting it.

 Great Supplement May 31, 2012 Reviewer: alotofgewgaws
Another great Evan-Moor book. Just a problem a day. I never hear complaints over 1 problem. Each day has a word problem, with Friday having a more complex problem to solve. I like this because I feel my kids don't solve enough word problems in their other math books. This gives them a math problem they can relate to in their everyday life.

 Daily Word Problems Grade 6 November 17, 2010 Reviewer: Unnamed from United States
This book has been helpful for my "below grade" math student. Just one word problem a day (or more if they are brave). Most "life" math is in word problem form. Daily Word Problems has helped review and reinforce math concepts.
