Mathematical Reasoning™ helps your child devise strategies to solve a wide variety of math problems. These books emphasize problem solving and computation to build the math reasoning skills necessary for success in higher level math and math assessments.
These highly effective activities take students far beyond drillandpractice by using stepbystep, discussionbased problem solving to develop a conceptual bridge between computation and the reasoning required for upperlevel math. Activities and units spiral slowly, allowing students to become comfortable with concepts but also challenging them to continue building their math skills.

Reviews:"As a teacher I like the problem solving activities as these could be used over again or with several students in the classroom." iParenting Reviewer "Mathematical Reasoning presents math in a way that makes it not only simple to learn, but also practical to apply to everyday circumstance (obviously making math more meaningful to him)." Katherine, Mississippi "My son hated math. I saw your curriculum and gave it a try. Wow, what a great fit for my son! Your Mathematical Reasoning curriculum gave him a way to learn math that made sense to him. Thank you!" Amy, Ontario, Canada "For the money, the books are excellent buys and worthy supplements to any childhood students education." Maxine, "Teaching Children Mathematics" published by NCTM "As a math instructor, I am so happy that it looks like I may have a mathbrain in my family after all! He asks to do his math school work (Mathematical Reasoning book) every day!" Janelle, Math Teacher & Parent Awards (earned by various titles in series):  Dr. Toy Best Picks
