By getting back to the basics, the innovative and time-proven techniques in this resource teach children that doing math can be fun and effortless. Teaching math verbally eliminates the added challenge of having a firm grasp on writing skills that are themselves still being learned, and does away with tedious worksheets. Separating tasks and learning math verbally not only helps children to solve math problems efficiently, but also teaches them to think conceptually rather than focusing all the effort on writing mechanics. This method stimulates speed and accuracy and is critical for success in higher school grades.
The lessons in this book are developed for children in first grade, with exercises geared specifically for their age and ability.
