Practical Arithmetics Book 2
Simple and easy to use text book
I have found this series of books to be easy to use, the answers are all at the back of the book, the books are very well set out and easy to understand, my children used to dislike their maths but after starting this series they now look forward to their daily lesson, we do 4 pages per day and that gives us a full years worth of lessons from one book,It is a compact well made book that I will be using for all 5 of my children,

I bought this book 3 years ago and used it 1 school year. It was simple to use; very straighforward. In my infinate wisdom, or lack there of, I decided to try Singapore due to good reviews. Then Saxon. Now on my 3rd daughter we are going back to this book in the fall for 3rd grade and continue with it for 4th. It looks small and cheap but it is something you will absolutely get your money for, can use on mulitple kids and is by far better than any "math" program out there. To complete it do about 1-2 pages per day.

I have tried many arithmetic products & this is my favorite. These books are small in size but packed full of practical/every day math that children can relate to. I also like that there are word problems that are easy to read & understand. This is mixed in with regular problems. I have found that even though my children knew all of their "facts" on paper they sometimes did not know how to relate it to everyday uses. This book has some black & white illustrations & problems in black type.I am using book 1 with my younger child and decided to do book 2 with my older. This second book is packed full of useful information. I bought all 3 books in this series & I am glad I did because this will be my math program for some time. Practical, easy to understand. I would give it an A.

See my review for book 1. This series of books is extremely thorough; don't let the size of these books fool you! Answers are in the back so you need no separate key. As the title states, this is an *Arithmetic* series, not mathematics. I beg people to make sure their children are well grounded in arithmetic before moving onto higher math. They are not the same thing!Quaint, thorough, straightforward.
