Does your child struggle with retaining math facts or forget how to perform basic math computations? Do they need to use math manipulatives for basic math facts, even into their middle school years? With the majority of math curricula written for the leftbrain learners who easily understand the drillbased math facts taught through black and white images, what is a parent to do with a child who learns differently and is not able to grasp math as traditionally taught? This DVD may provide the key to defeating frustration and overcoming forgetfulness! Beginning with a brief overview of right and leftbrain learning as it applies to mathematics, Dianne Craft shares effective strategies to help struggling learners retain math facts and processes. While recommendations for math curricula workbooks are offered, these techniques would work with most math programs that you are currently usingwith just a bit of tweaking! Strategies to teach addition/subtraction, multiplication/division, Algebra (order of operations), fractions and multiplication by 3 digits are included. This totally different teaching method will retrain the “nonmath” brain into a math sponge, giving your child confidence and skills for math success! While not part of the Right Brained Math Series from Child First Publications, this DVD could be a vital forerunner to that series, providing parents and teachers a foundational understanding of right brain leaners and their distinctive needs. Part of the “Struggling Learner Seminar” series. DVD runs approximately 40 minutes. ~ Deanne

This mini balance provides handson instruction in addition and subtraction, and could even be used for equations involving multiplication/division. For addition and subtraction concepts, you can begin by hanging the blue weights in various yellowpeg positions on one side, and balancing the sum on the other side. So, for example, if you hang a blue weight in the 10position on one side, you can create balance by hanging a blue weight in the 6 and 4position on the other side (6 + 4 = 10). Students can think through and try all the possible combinations that could work, not limiting themselves to only two weights on the one side. That will keep them busy for a while, and you may want to have them write down their answers in logical order to make sure they haven't overlooked any possibilities. Subtraction follows, as students try to determine where the missing blue weight should go (10 – 4 = ?). Multiplication occurs when multiple weights occupy a certain peg (2 weights at the 2 position is 2 x 2 = 4, so one weight in the 4position on the other side creates a balanced equation). Your equations can get even more complicated: what if you have a 3 and a 4 on one side and three 2's on the other? What do you need to add to make it balance, and where? The scale is not super precise in its ability to be perfectly calibrated, but little plastic weights are provided so that the calibrated accuracy will be sufficient for your purposes. ~ Caryl

Back in 1990, when homeschooling was still in its toddlerhood, the first edition of this book was selected as Best New Book. Aimed at the homeschooling parent, Ruth Beechick picks up where she leaves off in her ever valuable Three R's Series. Taking an indepth, common sensible look at each of these R's (reading, writing and arithmetic), she details teaching strategies and techniques as well as giving a general scope and sequence for grades 48. For instance, examination of textual, imaginational, and functional reading; the mechanics of writing coupled with usage and grammar as well as the various types of writing  describing, narrating, explaining, and reasoning; and general guidelines for each grade level of math. Then she looks beyond. In each academic area  history and social studies, science and health, music and art, and the Bible  she provides helpful teaching information and methods. Dr. Beechick, a highly experienced teacher/curriculum developer, will have you saying goodbye to feelings of inadequacy and acknowledging that you CAN teach your child successfully! 388 pgs, pb.

Algebra can be a very difficult course for many students who don't think abstractly. This book offers stepbystep, visual exercises using a balance scale to help with the understanding of 'balancing equations.' Similar to the format of the rest of the Balance Math series, this book additionally offers explanations and instruction for each step of the equation process. For example, the first page shows a balance scale that is level, having a 20 on the left pan and a square containing an x on the right pan. This would indicate that the two are equal. The next illustration shows a balance scale with the square containing the x on the left pan and a question mark (?) on the right pan. To the right of the illustrations is a box with these words, "From the 1st scale we know: 20 = x. Reversing the sides of an equation does not change its value. Therefore, x = 20 =?" Along with the verbiage is a fillin box where the student will answer "? = ____." The problems are presented as puzzles that engage and really make a student think, and progress from simple to complex. Some reviewtype pages are placed intermittently throughout the book just to make sure your student understands and can apply concepts. The back of the book offers tips for working with the balance scale visuals, and answers with explanations. The method used for teaching the steps of equations and solving them reminds me a little of the HandsOn Equations products. This would be a super introduction to algebra for younger children, a great tutorial for someone having difficulty with equations, or helpful practice for anyone wants to keep their skills sharp.

Math is used in every aspect of life and there is no exception for horse lovers. This workbook shows students how to apply math concepts to working with horses daily. Intended as a supplement for 4th or 5th grade, this workbook is full of realworld story problems that will invite the horse lover in your life to also love math.
This isn’t a systematic presentation of math concepts. Sections are arranged per the horse information, not the math. For example, the first chapter is titled A Day in the Life and is about telling time (timelines) and doing time problems. The student is asked to draw hands on clocks to show specific times and math problems that ask the student how long an event might take or how long it took to complete a task. There is no instruction on how to do the problem; it is assumed that the student will already know this. A Trip to the Tack Store is about money. Horse Science and Stable Management and Sports include addition, multiplication, and measurement. Horse Facts and Math Games and Things to Make and Do, give horse lovers an opportunity to apply what they have learned in the book – work through a math maze, crack the race code, learn some horse history, make your own hay net, make your own fly fringe, make horse cookies, and more. Pages with math problems to work provide work space and answers are found at the back of the book.
Level 1 is the first in a threebook series that is in progress right now. The book is 175 pages, and spiral bound, for ease of use.

Yes, a book that covers all the math you'll ever NEED. Numbers are everywhere, like it or not, and are a very important part of our lives. A surprising percent of people are mathematically illiterate and have trouble doing even grade school math without using a calculator. But this book makes us use our brains so we can once more solve problems in our heads or on paper, without depending on a calculator! A good refresher course for high schoolers, college graduates, or even adults, the 24 chapters go through math from the multiplication table to personal finances, to business math. Advanced word problems, interest rates, exponents and square roots, and much more are covered. Selftests are included starting in chapter three, with at least two selftests in every chapter. If you're inclined to skip some chapters, it's good to take the selftests anyway, to see how well you really know that area. Don't feel intimidated by numbers any longer! Push aside that calculator dependency and use your head!  Megan

Admittedly a little dulllooking on the outside, this small book holds a wealth of practical information inside. The book primarily addresses parents who are trying to decide whether or not to send their child to preschool, and it argues against it for a number of interesting reasons. While homeschooling is rarely mentioned and not assumed, the practical activity suggestions and insight into what may be "trendy" at the moment in preschool education makes this a valuable resource for homeschool families as well. The first three chapters lay the foundation, discussing intelligence, cognitive development, and the role of family relationships in building intelligence. The following chapters look at one facet of learning and break it down into very readable pieces, providing practical, informal suggestions to create a learning environment. For example, in the chapter on language skills, you'll find advice on how to talk to your child to build vocabulary and grammar, encouragement to intentionally use more complex sentence structure, tips to incorporate math language into daily routines, suggestions for working calendar concepts (seasons, days, months, holidays) into your conversation, and suggestions for having your child speak with other adults and adults who also speak a foreign language. Other chapters in this section address reading to your child, the benefits of playtime, use of educational TV/computer programs, the arts, learning through everyday routines at home, making the most out of running errands, exercise and nutrition, and educational community resources to consider (museums, local businesses, community events, etc.). Whether you're just starting your educational journey with your children or you're concerned you're not spending enough focused time with your preschooler while you homeschool your older children, there is a lot of good material here to make the most of the preschool years.
