Some Members of the TOS Crew were given the choice of which series they wanted to review...
I had the honor of reviewing the Math Mammoth Light Blue First Grade Curriculum.... I really can not say enough great things about it!!! (Also...as a side note... there is virtually NO parent/teacher prepping needed for these lessons).
From the website:
Math Mammoth Grade 1 complete curriculum consists of two student worktexts (A and B), a separate answer key for each, chapter tests and an end-of-year test, cumulative reviews, and an easy worksheet maker (Internet access required) to make extra practice worksheets when needed.
118 lesson pages, of which 8 are an optional Kindergarten review
(sold at Kagi)
Full set grade 1: $34.00
At Rainbow Resource Center:
Math Mammoth grade 1 books
at Rainbow Resource
The two student books (A and B) for 1st grade cover the following topics:
- addition and subtraction concept and basic facts within 0-10
- place value with 2-digit numbers (a.k.a. tens and ones)
- some adding and subtracting within 0-100
- some geometry and measuring topics
- reading clock to the half-hour
- counting and using coins (US, Euro, or Canadian)
There are free placement tests available on the website which are extremely helpful when deciding which grade level to use!!
I also want to make sure and mention that the customer service was UNBELIEVABLE!!! It is definitely tailored to the individual customer...and it is obvious that Maria Miller- the creator- cares about her product...and those using it... she is available by email and is more than happy to answer any questions you have about Math Mammoth!
