Math Mammoth offers affordable, yet quality math worktexts and workbooks for grades 1-8, available as both downloads and printed books. These books concentrate on conceptual understanding and are strong in mental math. The directions in the worktexts are written directly to the student, and are often self-teaching, thus requiring little preparation and involvement from the teacher. Maria Miller is the author of the Math Mammoth series, and her goals for this program include teaching so students can really understand what is going on. She has strived to explain each concept so that the teacher and student can “get it” by reading the explanations in the book. The books often become self teaching for the student, and there is very little preparation work for the teacher. Maria also desired to offer all this at affordable prices. Members of The Homeschool Crew were given the choice of reviewing one of the 5 products described below…..
The Blue Series– These are worktexts on a specific topic, such as addition or subtraction, place value, clock, measuring, money, multiplication, division, geometry, fractions, decimals, ratios, percent, integers, and so on. This topical arrangement makes the books suitable for many kinds of situations, such as:
- To supplement any other math curriculum;
- As a remedial material for students who are behind;
- As a review material on specific topics.
The download versions are very affordable with prices ranging from $2.00 to $7.00. Print versions are also available.
The Light Blue Series– This is a mastery based full elementary math curriculum for grades 1-6. Each grade level in this series consists of two student worktexts (A and B), and supportive materials, which include answer keys, tests, cumulative reviews, and an additional worksheet maker. The money chapter in grades 1, 2, and 3 is available for U.S., Canadian, British, European, and Australian money. Each full year curriculum, as a download, costs $34.00. Print versions are also available.
The Golden Series– Worksheets by grade level, for grades 3-8 This series contains worksheets only, one topic per sheet, but it doesn’t teach the topic. It is best suited for review, reinforcement or for tutoring purposes. Pricing for a complete grade collection ranges from $12.00 to $14.50. Discount packages are available.
The Green Series– Worksheets organized by topic, for grades 3-7 This series contains workbooks, or worksheet collections, each with a different mathematical topic (such as geometry, integers, statistics, or measuring). Each book in the Green series spans several grade levels on the same general topic. This makes it optimal for teachers who need worksheets on varying difficulty levels, and for parents/teachers who need comprehensive review material on a specific topic. The Green series books have been compiled from the grade-level collections (the Golden Series), so they contain duplicate content. Pricing for each individual topic ranges from $2.50 – $9.00. Discount packages are available. Math Mammoth offers a sample package with 300 worksheets you can download for FREE!
In addition to the Math Mammoth products, a series called Make It Real Learning by Frank C. Wilson is also available on the website. Make It Real Learning workbooks are written for grades 3-12, and each concentrate answering the question, “When am I ever going to use this?” It will motivate the students far more than dull, boring word problems from the textbook. It will show students how mathematics is truly USEFUL. Each workbook is $4.99. A sample download of 10 different activities is available for download.
