Mathtacular 4 Workbook
Follow along with the MathTacular 4 DVD and become a master Word Problem solver!
Every word problem Detective Time and Amber Waves face in their MathTacular 4 sleuthing appears right here as well!
The MathTacular 4 DVD will automatically stop after our heroes introduce each new word problem (unless you set it to play straight through). With this workbook in hand, your kids can solve the puzzle right then and there. With the push of a button, your children can restart the DVD and watch Justin Time and Amber Waves carefully work through the solution. Your children can solidify each new concept with 5 extra practice problems. Mathematical skills used in the word problems start with simple addition and work up to ratios, fractions and algebra.
The handy Tool Kit in the back of this book provides everything a kid might need to solve those pesky word problems. You'll find lists of:
•Clue Words—the same words Detective Justin Time uses to decide which mathematical operation each word problem needs.
•Simple Steps to Solve Word Problems—the exact steps Detective Time and Amber Waves use to crack each puzzle.
•Units and Measurements—conversion formulas for inches to centimeters, Fahrenheit to Celsius and more.
•Common Math Formulas—need to find the area of a triangle? Look here for help.
The Answer Key (sold separately) is a parent's dream. You'll find answers to each problem in the workbook and see all the steps on the way to that answer. And since there's more than one way to stuff a taco you'll even see alternate ways to solve some problems.
With MathTacular 4 and this workbook in hand, your kids are on their way to word problem confidence.
Workbook: for grades 6 and up. (The DVD is great for grades 4 and up.)
The decision to homeschool our daughter, Alexa, was an easy one. Choosing a curriculum that worked well with her goals and schedule was a little more difficult.
