This level contains a student-directed workbook only. David Quine, author of Making Math Meaningful, says: "The math instruction of children should proceed on two lines. The young child should begin to learn the basic facts and to understand math concepts, and his understanding should be well in advance of his skill to compute. The scale should be tipped in favor of a concrete understanding of math concepts so that he can think mathematically."
In this series your children will:
learn to reason
learn the math facts
learn to solve word problems
really understand math ideas
finally have fun doing math
Making Math Meaningful is perfect for all learning styles. There are activities using manipulatives for kinesthetic learners, activities using natural conversations for auditory learners, and activities using pictures for visual learners. The lesson plans are clear and easy to use. The student book is a workbook. The pages are not reproducible.
