Jump Math 3 Sample Pages (3mb pdf)

JUMP at Home Grade 3: Junior Undiscovered Mathematical Prodigies
Covers counting, sequences, place value, adding, subtracting, money, measurement, charts, arrangements and combination, patterns, rounding, division, multiplication, 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 would supplement Jump 3 with Mathematical Reasoning D Grade 3. 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!

JUMP at Home Grade 2 November 11, 2011
Reviewer: Molly Brown from Bolivar, OH United States  
I am using JUMP at Home Grade 2 with my 8 year old daughter who has been struggling and not progressing in  math. This program has been successful in helping her grasp concepts that she was unable to comprehend with other programs. Although the workbook pages are simple and straightforward, I have found that the teacher's manual has been very beneficial and has helped my daughter by giving her added practice and additional information. The manual may be copied for free on the JUMP website. I have found that by including Daily Word Problems Grade 2 and Addition the Fun Way! to help memorize facts is providing a good foundation for my student that has always found math very difficult and confusing.

Nicely Done Early Math Program November 11, 2011
Reviewer: Catherine Walker from Sneads Ferry, NC United States  
Having never used any of the levels of JUMP before,  I was not sure what it would be like once it arrived. Upon looking at it, I thought it might be too simple, that is until we began to use it! My daughter has completed about half of the book and we are ordering the next one. The things I most like about this program are as follows:
* The layout is very clean and simple, with directions often in bold type so the child can easliy read them.
*The lessons are not overly long, and it is broken into managable sections.
*The mixture of problems within each topic. It is not just "drill" where the problems are all the same, they are presented in various formats. I find this helps by keeping the child occupied, and helps teach them how to apply a concept in several ways.

I am happy that we purchased this...wish I had found it a few years ago!

Help your child JUMP into loving math! April 27, 2011
Reviewer: Christine Hill from Eau Claire, WI United States  
I purchased JUMP at Home Grade 3 to help my daughter who was struggling with her math.  JUMP was a reasonably priced option for what I wanted.  It is doing what I wanted it to do, giving her something different while still strengthening her math skills.  I like the different approach that is helping my daughter look at things in a different light.  I have to agree with the publisher though, I don't feel this is a stand-alone program.  Each lesson is somewhat isolated, there is no review after moving on to a new concept.  It also does not cover reading clocks at all in Grade 3, which is a pretty common subject for third graders to still be mastering.  I'm not sure if it is covered in a different grade or not, but there should be some review of it in Grade 3.  Overall, I'm happy with it as an accompaniment to the program we were using.  It has a strong emphasis on mental math which is beneficial to students at this level.  It was well worth the price.
