Reviews - What do customers think about MCP Mathematics Level C?
Good Math Book Aug 8, 2004
I got this book because my daughter was in a private Montessori school, and just was not getting the Math. I found it great for teaching what she needed to know in third grade for math. The book starts with a plain basic explaination, and builds on that knowlege in a logical sequence. My daughter ended up understanding what the teachers could not teach. I ended up having my daughter bring it to school to learn math. We are not returning to the Montessori school. However,I am ordering the fourth grade math book in this series.
A decent math book, not micky mouse math Jan 18, 2001
I found out about this book spotting a woman dragging around a bunch of kids with textbooks to the dentist, sure enough she was homeschooling, and she told me to get this book from Christian Supply. It's easier to get my 2nd copy (to replace the one I gave to my teacher) on this site.
It covers all the basics, plus some of the goofy games they play on those new fangled state tests like WASL.
The homework I get from my public school is pretty awful, it's either way too easy, or way too hard, or it's really hard but doesn't teach any math. Any one of the worksheets in these books is easy to do in 10 minutes and teaches just what you need to know. None of this cut out 56 cards and spend 2 hours playing how to add 10 or subtract 10 with your entire family nonsense.
The grade 3 covers multiplication with decimal points, square root on calculators, how to add X of item A, Y of item B, etc. by mixing multiply and add, and how to create a table for guess and check, plus measurement.
This book is a half-inch thick and tells you everything you need to know in 3rd grade. Dale Seymour's "Investigations" is 2 feet worth of books that you can't write on that doesn't teach you how to carry or do long division, but you do get to sing "Happy Birthday" in two languages.
Chances are, your school district has adopted one of the half dozen National Science Foundation "fuzzy" or "standards based" math texts that deliberately won't even show you how to add, multiply or divide without the use of a calculator or a number chart. The worksheets my teacher was handing out from who knows where were even worse.
If you supplement you kids with these, you'll have a good idea of what's normal for 3rd grade, and what good homework should look like. If everybody got worked up and bought this and showed this to their teachers and principal, we wouldn't have to deal with terrible math books.
