I also appreciate the thinking questions in this book. For example: "Penny gives her dog a bone every morning and every night. How many bones does she need in one week?" - here, the child will be expected to figure out that in one day, the dog ate two bones; and then in one week there are seven days, so it will be two times seven equals fourteen. This is a great way to integrate the concept of multiplication, and there are other problems which introduce children to fractions. We can't wait to move on to the next level!
The idea is that you do 5 problems per session, with a small quiz at the end of five sessions to make sure the information 'stuck'. We have found (and I'm now starting this book with my second child) that 5 problems are so easy and fun that we sometimes do more than one unit a day.
Besides the clear format, the other aspect of this book that I like is that the problems aren't all presented in the same format. For example, right off the bat, they have horizontal arithmetic problems along with a word problems and pictorial problems.
A horizontal problem:
3 + 1 = ____
Word problem :
Tom has one ball. He buys one more. How many does he have in all?
Well can't paste a picture, but here's an example: The picture will show four pennies and the question will be "How much?"
Four Stars. We have found this an excellent workbook that can be easily understand. Five problems at a time is generally not too much, even for active children like mine. This book however is ONLY a workbook with exercise problems. Parents and others looking for HOW to teach math book will have to look elsewhere. May I suggest "Math for Your 1st and 2nd Grader" by Steve Slavin. Math for Your First- and Second-Grader: All You Need to Know to Be Your Child's Best Teacher
Every child is different, as is every math curriculum. I wouldn't purchase this again, but if my son was still in school and needed practice, this workbook would be fine. Math To Learn/Math On Call/Math At Hand, along with their Teacher Resource Books, are far better for parent/family resources and practice of skills. We use them frequently and can't recommend them highly enough. But Daily Math Practice is quick and reinforces some skills, and it does help with knowing where they "should" be for homeschoolers.
