Jump Math 2 Sample Pages (3mb pdf)

JUMP at Home Grade 2: Junior Undiscovered Math Prodigy
Covers counting, adding, subtracting, word problems, missing numbers, patterns, measurement, sorting, graphing, money, time, and much more!

Please Note: This curriculum is published in Canada, so money concepts are taught picturing Canadian coins and measurements are metric.

About the Jump Math Curriculum
Let's be candid, some children grasp math more easily than others. For the child that intuitively understands mathematical concepts and is easily bored, check out Horizons Math. But if you regularly experience tears from your child whenever new mathematical topics are introduced, you will be relieved to know that there is a more systematic, precept upon precept math program just for him.

Spiral or Mastery Math?
Spiral math programs present a variety of topics at the same time. Through repeated exposure, children have numerous opportunities to learn and master the concepts. However, that method will not work for all children. Instead, a math mastery program that requires children to fully understand a concept before moving on to another one offers greater success.

Clear, To The Point, Effective, and No Teacher's Manual Is Necessary!
With simple, uncluttered pages, Jump Mathematics is mastery-oriented, clear, to the point, it makes sense, and it is effective. In Jump Mathematics, new ideas are introduced step-by-step in a logical order, while concepts that have been mastered are reviewed periodically. This program is so straightforward that no teacher's manual is necessary.

Simple, Inexpensive, Common Sense
If you want to give your child an exceptionally solid mathematical foundation, if you are looking for a program that is student-driven with minimal parental involvement, if your child is shaky on the basics, or if you are just looking for an inexpensive, no frills, common sense program, you are sure to be pleased with Jump Mathematics.

Is This a Complete Curriculum?
Yes and no. The publisher says that it is not really complete, but that it is a remedial program to be used alongside whichever math program your student is struggling with. We beg to differ. While every student is unique, after carefully evaluating the series we feel that a student who goes step-by-step through this program should have a solid math foundation and be adequately prepared to graduate into Teaching Textbooks (our advanced math curriculum of choice).

What Would You Do?
While we consider Jump Mathematics to be adequate as a stand-alone program, we have chosen to supplement Jump 2 with Mathematical Reasoning C Grade 2 in our 2nd Grade Curriculum Kit. Because Mathematical Reasoning uses a fast-paced, spiral approach, it will help keep math fresh for your child by covering topics at an entirely different pace than Jump. More important than that, though, Mathematical Reasoning places a huge emphasis on thinking skills, which helps your child to grasp the same math concepts from an entirely different angle without tedium. How perfect!

Pretty good, would have appreciated some guidance October 28, 2014
Reviewer: Liz Monroe  
I liked this math program as did my 7 year old daughter. We will probably use it again with her brothers, although I'm not completely sold on it. There is no teacher's manual or intro lessons (even though they say it's not needed), it's basically just a workbook. It's pretty self-explanatory but it still would have been nice to have a little guidance. Regardless, I'd say our year in math with Jump At Home 2 was successful.

Jumping for Joy with this math! October 29, 2013
Reviewer: linda s.  
My children do three different math programs. Not because I love math, but because I find that they all work well to build on and encourage concepts that they already know. JUMP became part of our curriculum this year after another parent recommended it to me as a way to solidify the learning that my children were doing with the other programs that they were using. I have long been a supporter of Singapore Math - I find it easy to use and easy for my children to work with. Adding JUMP to the equation has seemed to really drive home the concepts that the girls have learned previously. JUMP Math is at grade level (unlike other programs that say they are second grade but are really a grade above...) so my daughter is having those already learned skills reinforced - and also learning new ways of looking at problems. I like that each concept is covered well through practice, and that my daughter can be very self guided on this.I will continue to supplement my children's learning with this program because I want them to have the skills to do all Math, and to love it. Adding another math to their "Singapore" has only served to increase their already strange love of adding and subtracting and all other things math (I'm sure that's not something they inherited from me - since Math and I are only just now becoming good friends...).

Jump at Home, the jump we needed! December 4, 2012
Reviewer: Melissa  
We have been using Saxon math inconsistently for the past 5 years. Yes, I think Saxon teaches concepts very well, and yes it is thorough; but it did not work for me. It took over an hour for us to do a lesson, and I never figured out a way to shorten the time without sacrificing something. This was recommended here on Timberdoodle so I thought we would give it a try. We are using the grade 5 and 2 for my kids. It's just what we needed. We can do a little every day and it doesn't take up the whole school day. When we get to something that takes a little more time we do just that. I also like that its not overly repetitive.
