Jump Math 1 Sample Pages (3mb pdf)

JUMP at Home Grade 1: Junior Undiscovered Math Prodigy
Covers counting, adding, subtracting, patterns, measurement, sorting, 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 1 with Mathematical Reasoning B Grade 1 in our 1st 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!

My daughter loves it May 23, 2015
Reviewer: Victotiaporter10  
My daughter is in kindergarten and is using jump 1. She's absolutely loves it. I like how it shows multiple ways to do a problem. That can be confusing but as long as you take the time to explain its quite easy

Depends on what you are looking for.... February 4, 2015
Reviewer: Kristina W.  
We did jump 1 with my son this last year. He easily completed it although he would technically be a kindergartner. Some of the processes are a bit over simplified, which I feel is unnecessary. If you are looking for something to challenge your child, you might want to purchase a grade above; otherwise, this would be a good supplement to another math curriculum. HOWEVER. At the young age of six, there are only so many mathematical concepts that can be grasped. Practicing all the different forms of adding and subtracting numbers under 10 and counting to 25 is pretty much all they would do for math in public school. If you are going for a gentle introduction to what math is for your young elementary student, this might just be perfect. We enjoyed it and quickly were able to move on.

Jump at Home Grade 1 January 15, 2013
Reviewer: Micci  
We liked this enough to order it for the next year also. We did finish the book before the end of the school year so it will need to be supplemented with something else.

Not impressed January 2, 2013
Reviewer: Stephanie  
I'm not at all impressed by this math program. The lack of colorful activity sheets seems poorly planned, considering the age group it's made for. The way it teaches math is also confusing, as it offers a number of different approaches to reach the same answer. While some may see this as a plus, I see is as a con because it confuses my first grader. I get a lot of, "But I thought you wanted me to do it that other way..." when we do the JUMP addition and subtraction. I don't even use this book anymore - we prefer the Mathematical Reasoning and Daily Word Problems books that also came with out Timberdoodle first grade curriculum.
