Develop Math Reasoning SkillsIf you want to continue using your current math program, but need to develop math reasoning skills in your 2nd- to 4th-grade student, then the Mathematical Reasoning Grades 2-4 Supplement is for you. Learn to Reason Through Math ProblemsMost parents know that a child who only memorizes math facts without really understanding math will find progressively complex concepts more and more difficult to understand. But what they erroneously think is that such problems arise about the time a child is memorizing the multiplication table. Not so. Unlike reading, an integral skill that is tightly woven throughout our entire day, math tends to be a more sporadic subject, essential when you need it and then easily set aside. That is why it is imperative that a child is able to reason his way through any mathematical problem.
