"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 curriculum's 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.

Reinforce 2nd to 4th grade math concepts and skills by asking students to apply these skills and concepts to non-routine problems. Applying mathematical knowledge to new problems is the ultimate test of concept mastery and mathematical reasoning. This is the difference between quantitative reasoning and math. Solutions included.

Successful completion of this middle school geometry course will virtually guarantee a student’s success in high school geometry. Although the geometric concepts of perimeter, area, and volume are taught piecemeal from elementary school through middle school, many students enter high school without the skills and knowledge to succeed in high school geometry. This book teaches students an understanding of the reasoning behind the properties taught in geometry instead of merely asking them to memorize them.

Algebra is the gateway to success in future math and science courses in high school. Students who have a solid algebra background will have no trouble with the algebra problems from SAT and even the GRE. Understanding Algebra I highlights vocabulary, notation, and has examples from the history of math.
