This is a package of arithmetic, math, algebra, and geometry activities bound to please any Middle School Curriculum Director . . . ALL of Value Added Publishing’s digitally rendered offerings in one cost-saving package. The “combo +” includes five different forms of activities (404 pages of problems and answers) geared to improving the atmosphere of the classroom and the testing scores of middle school students (from fifth graders to eighth graders) . . . and it’s priced at an 18% discount from buying the five items separately. Included are: the complete set of fifth grade, sixth grade, seventh grade, eighth grade, and Middle School Algebra Board Sessions ($19.95 per set), the complete set of the five Middle School Mathnerdy “game boards” ($14.75), the complete set of 15 Middle School Cartesian Cartoons ($14.95), Dang, You’re Fast at Math ($14.95), and A Substantial Number of Neat Numbers ($14.95).
Board Sessions are 20 sets of problems for each grade that span a year’s worth of math in the grade level/subject for which they are written. All are designed to constantly review previous material and each problem works out nicely with no need for a calculator. They can be used as classroom openers/closers, blackboard/whiteboard problems to do in class, review assignments, and even Math Counts or Quiz Bowl problems . Mathnerdy game boards are a set of 5 sheets with four Jeopardy-like columns on each sheet enabling competition and classroom fun, and Cartesian Cartoons are 15 puzzle sheets that practice graphing in a plane and learning about symmetry all while also reviewing basic mathematics concepts to solve a puzzle.
Dang You’re Fast at Math and A Substantial Number of Neat Numbers is a "two-volume set” of problems and puzzles which could well be all that any school needs for their students to master those parts of arithmetic now needed in today's world . . . math or otherwise. The student will NOT have to do 568 x 47. That's for the calculator. The problems in these offerings concentrate on those operations which should be done with no calculator. The problems herein work on mastering powers that should be known, and properties that are quite useful in computations. Parts of all major tests emphasize just these facets of math. Eventually most tests will have a "no calculator" part and a calculator part. The AP-Calculus test already does, and the concept is spreading quickly. In short, one book deals with mastering the fundamentals, the other with developing quickness. (For a more detailed explanation on each "book" look under A Substantial Prime Number of Neat Numbers and Dang, You're Fast at Math in this Value Added Publishing site that you are now in.)
