Format: Paperback
This is an excellent collection of daily lessons that provide instruction and drill and practice of mental arithmetic. If your student can add and subtract but needs to jump to the next level of automaticity and mastery, this book is for you. Each lesson took my second grade son and I about 30 minutes to complete. Then he took around another 30 minutes to complete the drill and practice problems on his own. There are 36 lessons total. The practice sheets can be copied and recopied for more practice when needed. This resource is appropriate for teachers with large groups of children, teachers with small groups of children, parents wishing to provide extra drill in the evenings, private tutors, and homeschoolers. The lessons are scripted and tell the instructor exactly what to say during the instruction and answers to all problems are provided immediately. I am looking forward to acquiring the sequels to this text.

"Mental Math in the Primary Grades" is one of my top picks for first graders at [...]

Ever wonder how someone solves a problem so quickly, in their head? Learn for yourself! These lessons use a variety of methods to encourage quick computation based on understanding. With comic illustrations, the authors demonstrate different mental math strategies. Students can then practice the strategy with the oral and written problems provided.

It's obvious by the overhead transparencies that this is geared for a classroom. Otherwise - why would somebody want to do these lessons when there are so many ways to learn mental math that are far more interesting? I recommend tux of math to really get addition and subtraction facts down and singapore math to instill the same mental math concepts covered by this book.

I have used these strategies for many years in my 3rd grade classroom. These strategies have been the backbone of my addition and subtraction math curriculum. All my students were able to attain a high level of confidence in their math skills and the mental ability to enhance their understaning of number relationships and number sense.
