AB Publishing Practical Arithmetics Book 1

This series of books aims to give the child the ability to compute easily and accurately, and to enable him to interpret and solve the quantitative situations which he will meet in everyday life. In the achievement of this aim, these books incorporate the most valuable findings of modern experimentations in the teaching of arithmetic, including the results of important researches conducted by the authors themselves. These books present only those methods and materials which have been thoroughly tested in the classroom by many experienced teachers. Full provision has been made for pupils varying levels of ability. For those of superior ability more difficult exercises, marked with a star, are provided. For pupils of average and below-average ability additional exercises may be prescribed if needed; the diagnostic tests indicate whether extra work is necessary and also give references to suitable materials. This book covers two years of instruction. Includes addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and introduces geometry, fractions, and measurement. Answer key included at the back of the book.

My daughter is in third grade and is using this book for her arithmetic lessons. I cannot say enough good things about this program (there is 2nd and 3rd book as well). There is enough repetition to learn each new concept, but not too much as to make it boring for the student. The concepts and lessons are designed to be applicable to real life situations.

I have used many math books with my son, this is by far the greatest. My son has been able to do most of it on his own. If your child can read and follow directions they can do most of the work independently. It is written to the child and explains all new concepts in an easy, understandable manner. They use real everyday problems. Your child doesn't just learn to parrot back facts but gains much understanding as they always have them apply the new concepts. I find no need to supplement this program at all. I'm so glad to have found this arithmetic book. I plan to use the all three books with each of my children. Kellee

I have tried many arithmetic products & this is my favorite. These books are small in size but packed full of practical/every day math that children can relate to. I also like that there are word problems that are easy to read & understand. This is mixed in with regular problems. I have found that even though my children knew all of their "facts" on paper they sometimes did not know how to relate it to everyday uses. This book has some black & white illustrations & problems in black type. I bought all 3 books in this series & I am glad I did because this will be my math program for some time. Practical, easy to understand. I would give it an A.

Don't let the size of this book, or the other two in the series, fool you! There is no wasted space in these books, you need no separate answer key (they're in the back), my children love the vintage pictures, the explanations are good without being wordy, and this is very thorough. Problems do need to be copied into a spiral notebook and worked out (not a workbook). Being non-consumable, it's great for multiple children and very inexpensive.Be sure your children know arithmetic forward and backwards before moving on to mathematics. I'm amazed at the number of people I know who can do algebra but can't balance a checkbook or figure interest!
