Sarah–Now I’m no math wizard or anything, but the last time I checked, 45/5 was 9, not 7. Spectrum seems conflicted about this. There are a lot of mistakes in the answer key which makes corrections confusing when your own math (and calculator) differ from what the book says. Lots of time wasted on problems that were correct, but the answer key says otherwise. The kicker? On page 64 (see attached picture) they ask 45/5 twice. The correct answer is listed for the first problem, but not the second. Now imagine how confusing that could be to a child seeing this math for the first time. Heck, I’m an adult and I feel like I’m going crazy and this book is gaslighting me. Speaking of repeat problems on the same page, you’re going to see a lot of that. I would have thought these were computer-generated if it weren’t for the incorrect answer key. Hopefully Spectrum/Carson-Dellosa hires some better proof-readers before sending out the next edition.Read more

Sua–My son is becoming 8yr soon. I started teaching math for my son since he was 3yr. He has to do one worksheet to get 20 min iPad time. So, everyday, he does at least 1 worksheet. On weekends, he usually does 4 worksheets. For math, I tried kimon, Carson-Dellosa skill builder series, super math, practice makes perfect series, etc. I started with Spectrum Math 1. Then, for 2nd and 3rd grade levels, I got Kumon, super math and practice makes perfect series – word problems. I supplemented with bunch of calculation worksheets I made my own. I realized Spectrum is the best among all. Now for 4th grade level, I am back to Spectrum. It has the content well ordered with lots of practice worksheets gradually getting more difficult and also with enough word problems. This math workbook alone is certainly not enough to master 4th grade math. So, my son is currently working on calculation practice and fraction (from carson-dellosa) . The section for +/- seems too much, so I skipped those pages. For grade 5 level, I am planning do get Spectrum Math 5 (probably skip some simple calculation pages again), then supplement with fraction, geometry and pre-algebra. For grade 6, again, I will start with Spectrum Math 6, then find some workbooks for specific topics.Read more

Cecilia–We used this book as a bridge for my daughter to do over the summer before 4th grade, so she wouldn’t forget her 3rd grade math skills, and maybe even be a little ahead of the herd when school starts. I like that this book is very straight forward. It’s not a whole bunch of games that overshadow the actual math. It’s just a book with a bunch of math problems. I like that, but my 9 year old doesn’t necessarily like the book. She has not enjoyed doing the math pages over the summer. However, I’m going to give the book the benefit of the doubt just because I know there are kids out there who enjoy doing pages of math (my son would be numbered among them), and she hated math before she started this book. Also, we don’t give her, her ADHD meds during the summer so that probably made things worse. This book is ideal for helping kids work through lots of problems to cement the process in. It builds onto the skills the kids master in each section so it gets progressively harder. It also shows examples of how the math is done to teach them along the way. Overall, it’s a good book, one that I’ll probably use for my son in the future. For my daughter, I’ll probably go with something with more fun mixed in.Read more

Christy–This workbook has really helped my ten year old this summer. I’m glad I choose this one because I really wanted him to have a solid foundation before he enters the 5th grade. I love how it gives a review just in case mom forgot how to do the problems. Also I like how it gives a mix of problems and word problems.Read more

Trisha–My daughter is 8, in the GT program and will be going into 3rd grade after this summer. I decided to get her the 4th grade book hoping it would challenge her. Unfortunately, it was stuff she learned in 1st and 2nd grade. The only part in the book that she didn’t know how to do was adding and multiplying fractions. If your child is advanced I would go up 2 grades to get them challenged and to learn new skills. That said, the book is organized well and I will be buying the 5th grade version and see if that will be better for her.Read more

Aa and T–I love these books for my homeschool math, however, I’m taking off two stars because I’m finding multiple incorrect answers in the answer key and typos that confuse the learner. I feel like the publisher having the right answers is pretty important. Fix this and I’d give these books 5 stars. They give plenty of practice problems, the progression is logical and simplifies the teaching process for the parent. I’ve tried several other homeschool math curriculums and these books are by far my favorite. There is room for me to help my kids learn whatever way makes most sense to them. I’m not stuck just teaching the common core way if it isn’t making sense to them. I like that I can keep all their work in one handy book that doesn’t take much space. If I were to redesign this book, though, I would remove all the “check what you know” sections prior to each new concept. Obviously if I’m teaching this for the first time they don’t know anything about it, so what’s the point? I always skip those pages. Here and there I go back and use them if I think the kids need more practice on a subject, but that’s only happened like twice.Read more

Mountain Momma–This workbook is great for drilling to mastery. However, for a student it is dry, boring. I use it in homeschooling to companion DK’s 10 Minutes a Day Math workbook. Only complete selected pages/problems to ensure practice and mastery. I like the variety of problems and word problems offered to make sure student truly understands the problem back/forth/up/down.Read more

Yvonne Scales–My child hates me for making him do math during the summer, but was severely behind in math. This book is great practice as each section has easy, clear, and detailed examples. Enough pages of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and fractions that I know he now understands how to do the math properly. Highly recommended as extra practice for those who need it before the upcoming school year. Would be excellent refresher for those who know it alreadyRead more

ALVARO&CARLOS_VILLAN.–English: I bought it for my 8 years old daugther (She is in 4th grade). I wanted her to improve her english understading plus her comprensiviness of problems (of Math’s). She is enjoying it and learning. Then target was achieved. Spanish: Lo compré para mi hija de 8 años que va a 4º curso de primaria. Es un buen libro pues tiene problemas para hacerles pensar y hacer calculos. Vale para iniciar el estudio de las mates y el inglés. Se nota rápido la mejora y a ella le gusta.Read more
