Math Mammoth: Blue series ~ a TOS review

 photo logo_zps1488a12d.jpg

Math is a subject that we have a main curriculum for that we love. However, it is always fun to supplement and that is what we did when the opportunity to review the Blue Series from Math Mammoth was offered.

Math Mammoth was created by Maria Miller, a homeschooling mom with a degree in mathematics. Her company offers multiple products that help parents teach math to their kids. Worktexts are individual  units that focus on a specific topic only. These make a good supplement to any math program and can also be used for review. I choose the Blue Series  with the following worktexts:

~ Add & Subtract 2A:

  • adding and subtracting within 0-20. Memorizing the basic addition and subtraction facts of single-digit numbers. For grades 1st - 2nd

~ Multiplication Division 3:

  • multiplication and division topics, including multiplication algorithm, long division, estimation, divisibility, factoring, and ratios. This book helps to develop students' algebraic thinking. For grades 4th – 5th.

~ The Four Operations:

  • The main topics studied in this worktext  are simple equations, the order of operations, expressions that involve a variable, long multiplication and division, and graphing simple linear functions. For grades 5th - 6th.

~ U.S. Money:

  • This worktext starts with first grade topics including counting pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. For grades 1st – 2nd.

I used each of the these worktexts with Madison, Mikayla & Montana as a supplement to our main math program. I loved the in-depth look that the girls got on individual topics that they needed just a little extra help with. These materials are just the right amount of material without being too overwhelming. I love that the worktext files come as a PDF download. With children of multiple ages and stages this is a wonderful option for me to just print off what pages I need when I need it.

With so many topics to choose from in the Blue series including: place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, money, measurements, geometry, and fractions, you are sure to find a worktext for your child. Look at the samples online to find the perfect starting spot for your child. The Blue series retails for $2.00 to $7.00.
