Downloadable Math-U-See "mini office" or lapbook! So far she has primer and parts of Alpha and Beta available for free to download (she's a busy homeschool mom, too). Yay!! THIS is what I've been looking for amidst my other math pins. :) (from ecomomicalme)
Math-U-See ... Our goal is to help produce confident problem solvers who enjoy the study of math. The reason we study math is so we can apply what we learn in everyday situations. The students learn their math facts, rules, and formulas, and are able to use this knowledge in real life applications. The study of math is much more than committing a list of facts to memory. It includes memorization, but it also encompasses learning the concepts that are critical to problem solving.
