Success in math requires children to make connections between the real world and math concepts in order to solve problems. Extra practice can help young problem solvers advance to more complex topics with confidence. The activities in this workbook are designed to help your children catch up, keep up, and get ahead. Best of all, they’ll have lots of fun doing it! Some of the great features you’ll find inside are:
BASIC MATH It’s about Time Students practice multiplying by figuring out the time spent eating, watching TV, playing soccer, and sleeping.
Making Change Calculating the change from buying a candy bar, book, or T-shirt helps students reinforce adding and subtracting with money. MATH GAMES & PUZZLES Code Breaker After solving problems with addition and subtraction, multiplication, fractions, temperature, time, or money, students use the answers to solve a fun riddle.
Fraction Factory Using the game board in the workbook, players see who can move the quickest through fractions of muffins to get to the box at the end.
