The concepts are sound, however.
I do like the ideas for parents though...I've used the suggestions in this book with my first grader who is learning addition math facts. He especially likes the idea of the Quick Card (page 15) that tells how to move facts mastered to a stack of cards you don't have to practice as much. It's a systematic way to teach and practice the facts. I also like the maintenance plan (p. 87) that recommends you practice 20 cards of the mastered stack each day. I believe building a strong math fact foundation will help kids all the way through elementary math and beyond!
I do have one caution: teaching all of the "tricks" for addition may be confusing. You have to pick and choose the tricks to teach based on the individual child!
The 3x5 card approach does not seem very smart, either. I don't see how it is better than "practice,practice, practice". There must be a better way for teaching kids math. Does anybody have any suggetions of a better math-teaching book?
