Algebra Test Prep and Review provides students with a clear, easy-to-understand, step-by-step review of Algebra I & II. It can be used to supplement an algebra textbook or as a study guide for students taking standardized tests covering algebra. Students learn helpful procedures and strategies for solving algebra word problems using real-world application examples. This concise study guide quickly gets to the heart of each particular topic, helping students with a quick or extensive review. Students can easily locate key terms, definitions, properties, phrases, concepts, formulas, rules, and equations. Each algebra concept starts with a lesson that includes a variety of examples (both easy and more advanced), practice problems, and finally quizzes to test skills and understanding. The visual format uses less text and more outlines, tables, and charts than textbooks. The organization and design make it suitable for middle school, high school, and college algebra students.

Balance Math & More Level 1, Gr. 2-5

$9.99

The Balance Math™ & More! activities sharpen students' critical thinking and computational skills, and develop algebraic reasoning. Each book is made up of three different types of puzzles: Balance Math: Students examine the balances to deduce the missing value. Inside-Out Math: Students need to reverse their thinking, using the inverse relationships between addition and subtraction and multiplication and division to solve the puzzle. Tic Tac Math: Students figure out the correct order to complete all rows, columns, and diagonals. Level 1 focuses on addition and subtraction of whole numbers. The spiraling difficulty level is designed to scaffold a student's conceptual understanding of the targeted operations from beginning to advanced. Teaching suggestions and detailed solutions are included. Try one of these intriguing puzzles—and then try to stop!

Basics of Critical Thinking Gr. 4-9

$22.99

This book is designed to teach critical thinking to middle and upper elementary students. Many workbooks claim to teach or develop critical thinking skills, but most of these products never define critical thinking or try to teach the meaning to students. This book defines and teaches critical thinking in a way all students can understand through simple explanations, diagrams, and short, engaging activities. In addition to being a course in critical thinking, the activities in this book can be used to supplement lessons in all subjects.

More Options...

Provides fun, highly effective and engaging reasoning activities to improve the vocabulary, pre-reading, pre-writing, math, logic, spatial, and auditory processing skills of preschoolers. It teaches children to use organized analysis instead of guesswork to solve problems as it develops critical thinking skills necessary for success in reading, math, writing, and science. The title may be used as a complete critical thinking curriculum to prepare young minds for preschool academics. The books use colorful, easy-to-understand activities, sequenced in small steps, many game like, and solvable in a short period. 280-440 pages.

In addition to waking up sleepy brains for the day's lessons, these short, fun daily activity pages develop the most important reading comprehension skill found on all standardized reading tests. Synthesizing disparate information and using the result to produce a reasonable conclusion is an essential skill assessed on standardized reading tests. This comprehension skill usually determines a student's reading score–and every Daily Mind Builders™ activity develops this skill. Each daily activity page includes two puzzles. The first puzzle is a short, true mystery. Its solution requires careful reading, inferential reasoning, and deductive thinking. The second puzzle involves a process of elimination involving the meanings of words or relationships between words. Try the samples and you'll be hooked!

Math Analogies Beginning, Gr. K-1

$11.99

Understanding analogies and the ability to reason analogically (reasoning used to identify, evaluate, and solve an analogy) are important problem-solving skills. Problem-solving is an essential part of mathematical development. Analogies teach students to break problems down into their component parts, making it easier to recognize familiar formats that enable students to produce solutions. The Beginning level Math Analogies asks students to draw and verbalize their answers. The drawings develop fine motor skills, and the verbalization develops communication skills. The analogies in this book are designed around the grade-appropriate standards identified by the National Council of Teaching Mathematics.
