Beyond Drill to Real Skills

Most parents know that a child who only memorizes math facts without really understanding math will find progressively complex concepts more and more difficult to understand. But what they erroneously think is that such problems arise about the time a child is memorizing the multiplication table. Not so. Unlike reading, an integral skill that is tightly woven throughout our entire day, math tends to be a more sporadic subject, essential when you need it and then easily set aside. That is why it is imperative that a child is able to reason his way through any mathematical problem.

Award-winning Mathematical Reasoning is a great place to start. With 312 pages of quick, straightforward problems to build mathematical reasoning skills in first-grade students, these highly motivational activities will take your child beyond mere drill work by using step-by-step, discussion-based problem solving. Concepts spiral gradually so that children do not forget as they go. The concepts are written to the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Non-reproducible.

Topics/activities include Action, Addition, Bar Graph, Calendar, Capacity, Count, Fractions, Language, Length, Likelihood, Manipulative, Match, Money, Number Line, Odd/Even, Order, Pattern, Probability, Real World Problems, Shapes, Subtraction, Symmetry, Temperature, Time, Weight, and Whole Numbers.
Answer guide included in the back of the book.

MATHEMATICAL REASONING LEVEL B
"...What a blessing! Bubble Gum Taffy, who is 5 and in Kindergarten has been working her way through this book designated more for 1st grade/6 year olds. I don’t consider Bubble Gum Taffy to be exceptionally bright, but this book sure is! It’s so gentle, so non-assuming, but completely able to teach concepts that she was having difficulty with prior. My only complaint about the book is it’s binding, she had a little trouble writing on the page that didn’t open all the way. This could easily fixed with a quick book-chop at the local print shop though!I wasn’t sure about the price of this book and if this book alone would be enough for a math curriculum, but I can see that I was wrong on both accounts, well worth the money and plenty enough for a years worth of learning!..."

I love this book. I really like that it had a lot of different activities to do. They kept changing. I like that it was very colorful.

Reviewer: Jess  
I know that Math U See is a bigger hit with most at the moment. We started with Mathematical reasoning in K and loved it. It revisits things so that it can stay fresh on the mind and the activities are diverse enough the kids aren't bored very easily.

It has so much fun things to do with math. It is also really pretty with lots of colors. I always want to do math first.

Not my favorite October 29, 2015
Reviewer: Julia  
Word problems for first graders. My daughter is just beginning to be able to read her school books on her own, but this is beyond her reading level. I fully expect to give her direction and instruction because, after all, I homeschool, but for plenty of pages, it ends up being quicker to just stand there and help her read the pages. Not the format I am looking for when chasing a 2 year old. Going back to Math-U-See. Probably will use this as a companion.
