Here at [Math]odology we believe math practice should be fun, challenging, and enjoyable. The [Math]odology Splash of Math Practice and Prep workbook is intended for all learning abilities. Spiky, Buzz, and Curly accompany students through a review of and practice with key mathematical concepts learned throughout each grade level so that students are prepared for mastery at the next grade.
There are five “sessions” that make up this workbook. Each session contains a review, check for understanding practice questions, a fact fluency component, leveled word problems, and a brain booster challenge.
Our [Math]odology workbooks serve to provide intentional review and quality practice so that students are problem solving, enhancing mathematical understanding, and developing reasoning skills.
