Add fun and adventure to factors and quotients! This Multiplication & Division 3-4 workbook, in a great, take-anywhere size, teaches and reinforces foundational areas of math that are difficult for many children: multiplication and division. Confidence-building exercises include multiplying by zero, supplying missing factors, beginning long division, estimation, story problems, and more. Clear instructions, step-by-step examples, and beautifully illustrated animal and ocean critter friends make it more fun. As a happy bonus, the animal names are included, adding a bit of science and vocabulary to the math mix, and helping kids enjoy learning and practicing their multiply and divide skills, which are so important to lock in. Multiplying and dividing are the building blocks for higher-level math such as fractions and algebra. We use multiplication in countless everyday situations. It helps us make calculations involving time, distance, and mileage. It enables us to determine international currency exchanges, figure how much money we will have in 6 months if we put a particular amount in the bank each month, or how much 6 doors will cost based on the price of one. We also use multiplication to determine measurements ranging from the square footage of a room to expanding a recipe for 4 to make it serve 12. Division is equally all-the-time useful. How do we split up that pie or pizza? With 3 kids in the family and a specific budget for presents, how much gets spent on each child? Of course, multiplying and dividing are closely related. If we know that 3 X 4 = 12, we are very close to seeing that if we divide 12 by 4, we get 3! The more we practice, the more we improve.
Activities in this workbook progress from easier to harder levels. The handy Table of Contents in Multiplication 3-4 is arranged by skill, and concepts and skills are identified on each page, plus, an easy-reference Answer Key makes it super convenient to check work with confidence. A Parent Guide inside the front cover offers tips for maximizing learning, and Activities to Share inside the back cover suggest ideas for expanding the lessons in creative ways. The 32-page workbook is a great size for slipping into a tote or backpack for take-anywhere fun and learning. Turn rainy days, waiting rooms, and travel times into skill- and knowledge-expanding times.
Almost 40 years ago School Zone Publishing responded to parents need for tools to help reinforce in-school learning. Workbooks continue to be just the right combination of play and practice, making them excellent, teacher-created, parent-approved resources. Writing by hand fires up specific parts of a child s brain, improving a child s ability not only to remember what he or she learns, but to think of new ideas. Think of workbooks as analog devices because workbook practice can help kids develop fine motor skills, focus on the task at hand, and learn at their own pace.
This Multiplication & Division 3-4 Workbook includes a variety of attention-getting activities, and its playful feel helps de-stress math and keep third- and fourth-graders focused.
