The purpose of this workbook is to continue double-digit multiplication at the level students know their times table. There are three levels of difficulty just like Book -1. Level one begins to include the digit 6; level two uses the digits 1-8; level three uses all digits, and the problems are larger. ( 2 digits by 4 digits) By using this concept, all students can be practicing the process of double-digit multiplication at the same time, even if they do not all know the times table at the same level of proficiency.
The lessons are labeled: day one; 1-Q (lowest level); 2-Q
(middle level); 3-Q (highest level). The next day you would use
1-R, 2-R, and 3-R. The workbook has 10 days of worksheets. That's 30 worksheets with answer keys.
In this book, the grid lines are lighter, and are only used for the 1st five lessons. After that, the grid lines are gone.
The answer key contains the same work that the student must do. ( .."show your work") The teacher has the entire answer, not just the final answer. By having the entire answer, the teacher can identify problem areas and point them out to the student. For example, some students get all the multiplying correct, but make mistakes adding. Other students make mistakes when they are carrying or regrouping.
I hope you find this workbook to be a useful addition to your math curriculum. I have been using it for 16 years and it has been a great resource in my 5th grade class.
