Reviews - What do customers think about Third-Grade Math Minutes: One Hundred Minutes to Better Basic Skills?
great and quick review Mar 5, 2008
This is great for a quick review. The kids love it and they get some concepts reviewed on a regular basis. They like to do volume quite a bit, which is great because that is a pitfall for my third graders. There are a few computation problems and a few thinking problems and the publishers seem to put something from all the strands of the NCTM standards. For my class I had to adjust it and instead of one minute I give them two minutes to complete as much of the review as they can.
Great Minutes! Dec 7, 2007
Very useful book. A variety of math concepts on one page. Good as a math starter, for homework or just review!
Motivating! Feb 21, 2007
I love the Math Minutes line! I teach 1-8 at an alternative school. My students are on all different levels. The Math Minutes are great to use in this situation, because I can teach the entire class according to individual levels. The pages from all the books look basically the same, so no one knows which book I am teaching from. Each page has 10 problems that are varied so even reluctant students are motivated to complete them. I bought the Third Grade book, because my school had all the others, and there was a definite gap in the sequence of learning without this one.
a better workbook Sep 5, 2006
The Math Minutes series is a complete after-school program to help children practice the essential math skills they need in each grade. This workbook provides practice for all the major topics at the third grade level with an emphasis on multiplication. It mixes various types of questions, such as word problems and puzzles, in a drill - a nice feature; hence your child is not overwhelmed by a page of 40 monotonous multiplications like in some other books. It also highlights the speed factor to foster your child's get-things-done spirit rather than procrastination. The answer keys are provided instantly following the drills. They ensure that your child understands where and how he has made errors and indicate the type of practice needed. For the several workbooks I bought for my son, this is the only one he completed, and we had some fun in the process. We definitely like it better.
Good math requires regular practice and problem solving. I find that you can have more such nice worksheets at beestar.org. It is an excellent web site provides weekly grade-by-grade math exercises. They are common in that kids are given interesting and changing challenges, so they have more interests to work on math regularly.
