Success in math requires children to make connections between the real world and math concepts in order to solve problems. Successful problem solvers will be ready for the challenges of mathematics as they advance to more complex topics. 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:
Tic-Tac-Toe A twist on this classic game helps students develop a solid understanding of factors, prime numbers, and composite numbers.
Dueling Denominators Students gain practice determining the lowest common denominator between fractions and then adding them.
Simply Simplify Multiplying fractions can be easier if you simplify the fractions first, and students reinforce these skills by identifying numbers with common factors.
Fitting In Measuring the length of a book, CD case, and DVD case to determine how many will fit on a shelf gives students confidence in measuring objects in centimeters and finding an answer measured to hundredths.
Fine Lines Students practice recognizing points, lines, and rays by looking for pairs of lines in a picture and determining which are parallel, perpendicular, or intersecting.
