"The most positive characteristic of the Mathematical Reasoning books are the higher order thinking skills that the content encourages. As an educator, I can appreciate that the skills involve multi-steps and hands-on manipulation." - iParenting Media reviewer
"The best part of Mathematical Reasoning is the bright, colorful pages. My daughter is an artist and enjoys colorful, interesting workbooks and lessons. So, she was thrilled when we received Mathematical Reasoning in the mail. She immediately sat down and started the first lesson."
This series Mathematical Reasoning teaches the mathematical concepts and skills students are expected to know in each grade level. Each title also introduces several skills and concepts normally taught in the next grade level. Mathematical Reasoning™ helps children 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. All books are written to the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
Mathematical Reasoning Beginning through to Mathematical Reasoning Level F are complete curriculums for their grade levels. The Mathematical Reasoning Supplemental titles for Grades 2 through to 9 emphasize higher order thinking skills and understanding of what is going on behind the problems.
These highly effective activities take students far beyond drill-and-practice by using step-by-step, discussion-based problem solving to develop a conceptual bridge between computation and the reasoning required for upper-level math. Activities and units spiral slowly, allowing children to become comfortable with concepts but also challenging them to continue building their math skills.
