Through Verbal Analysis
Bridges the gap between computation and mathematical reasoning for higher grades and top test scores.
Grades: PreK - 8

These books teach the mathematical concepts and skills students are expected to know per grade level. They also introduces several skills and concepts normally taught in the next grade level. Mathematical Reasoning™ helps children devise strategies to solve a wide variety of math problems. These books emphasize problem solving and computation to build the math reasoning skills necessary for success in higher level math and math assessments. All books are written to the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Beginning through Level E are complete curriculums for their grade levels; Book 2 is supplemental at the higher grade levels.
These highly effective activities take students far beyond drill-and-practice by using step-by-step, discussion-based problem solving to develop a conceptual bridge between computation and the reasoning required for upper-level math. Activities and units spiral slowly, allowing children to become comfortable with concepts but also challenging them to continue building their math skills.
Only Book 2 has a separate Instruction Answer Guide which includes concept overviews, answers, and focus questions that lead students to think mathematically as they verbalize the steps of working through concrete and abstract processes.
