Like a language, math is a series of building blocks – that never really go away. Early level mathematics is the foundation for all later mathematics. The building blocks of mathematical development crumble if built upon an instable foundation.
We need to realize that students have multiple learning styles (beyond the visual, auditory and kinesthetic). Some connect to mathematic terms and processes, while others are in need of an understanding of the relationship between the skills and the real world.
This book includes (actually fun) activities that help reinforce and teach key math concepts – including fractions & decimals.
