Jump Math 4 Sample Pages (3mb pdf)

JUMP at Home Grade 4: Junior Undiscovered Mathematical Prodigies
Covers counting, sequences, place value, rounding, estimating, adding, subtracting, division, multiplication, fractions, decimals, money, measurement, number lines, patterns, and 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 4 with Mathematical Reasoning E Grade 4. 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!

Finally-math that works for her! May 31, 2012
Reviewer: Joshboohmom  
I am very grateful for JUMP math. My daughter and I have tried Miquon, Math Mammoth and Singapore Math without much success. When she started 5th grade, I purchased the 4th grade JUMP book for her. I wanted to start at a lower level because we had changed curriculums so much that I wasn't sure where she had missed concepts. It was a very good fit. The best part of the curriculum is how it breaks processes like long division down into small steps AND gives practice in each step before moving on. My only complaint is that once a process is taught, there isn't enough practice of the whole thing. I easily fixed this by printing practice problems from a math worksheet site online. This required a subscription fee, but since JUMP is so inexpensive, I easily justified the small additional expense. My daughter likes the clutter-free black and white pages in JUMP. A fun bonus is learning about Canadian geography and money.

Wish I had looked into it more May 31, 2012
Reviewer: Maggie  
This book is meant to be used by people trained to use this book. It really is not meant to be used as a book for parents to teach their children. There is lingo and jargon and no guidance about how to proceed with the lesson. It is not laid out in an intuitive manner. I looked into getting the teacher's manual and it is 80.00. You need to be math literate to use this.
