This book was a required purchase for our daughter's education program and it was very nice to be able to get it here for much less than her campus book store was asking. She felt it was well written, made use of good examples, covered the fundamental in a way that the goofy DOE seems to have forgotten with today's dunce-like program like common core, and offered techniques that she will be able to use.

Recommended if you are in the same situation, or if you are home schooling. Was delivered quickly too.

The book is simple, logical and intuitive. The sequence of topics through the chapters is a careful description from concrete (using manipulatives i.e. number disks, place value charts, etc.), then moving to pictorial (where pictures represent numbers) working in the abstract.
Every topic in the book is functional in the process how to add. Every new concept gives more sense of the previously introduced ones in feedback.
For example starting from the friendly numbers to the grouping of the numbers (to start multiplication, the connection of addition and subtraction and the connection of addition to multiplication is very consistently built in the text).
With the consistent building the students are ready to start complete algorithms by third grade (or middle of second grade).
There is a reason as of which number bonds to start with, which addition to teach first, likewise the order of multiplication and skip counting taught and this follows with the introduction of fractions and elements of algebra.
The book is highly recommended. The writer of this review taught in-service teachers from this book, as well as parents joining the group. They all said, they wished that mathematics was introduced to them like in this book- it would have made sense and they probably liked mathematics (and reflected the love of mathematics more). The teachers liked the suggestions for constructing their own notes for their teaching.

Please note: You may purchase the book from The publisher (Sefton - Ash Publishing) for a more reasonable price.

This book is giving me ideas to help teach math to elementary students, however the school have different ways they are teaching students math so look for books written from 2013 till today. Go Math the textbook I used in student teaching. Today there is a new curriculum and set if standards to follow so keep that in mind.

Horribly written and hard to follow. Several grammatical errors as well. The book often "yells" at you to "read the text". The homework at the end of each section is not appropriate practice, it is time consuming and not beneficial to improve your knowledge of the material. I wish my university used a better textbook. This book forces you to buy more books that go along with it and it is frustrating flipping back and forth between them. This book ishould be replaced with another in all schools. I am in awe that my major university chooses to use this text.

This is pretty traditional in its approach to math as a procedural way of thinking. It makes a good summary of all those basic math ideas one might have forgotten.

A little more beaten up than advertised, but it will work just fine.
