Math Mammoth - About "Time" for a Review

Math Mammoth Clock (Blue Series)

We've been using a fun curriculum from Math Mammoth to learn about clocks, telling time, and using a calendar.    Let me tell you about it.

 Math Mammoth Clock (Blue Series) is a 78 page worktext (including answers), suitable for grades 1-3, that covers:
  • Whole and Half Hours
  • Half and Quarter Hours
  • How Many Minutes Pass
  • Using Calendar
In the book there are explanations and exercises.  The book really requires very little teacher preparation--very easy to use.  By the time you're done your student will be able to read a clock, figure out time intervals, and use the calendar.  Since this book contains grades 1-3 and progresses as you go it's easy to have your child work on different sections at different times as they are able.

Fore example: 1st grade contains reading the clock to the 1/2 hour, 2nd grade contains reading the clock to the 5 minute intervals, 3rd grade contains reading the clock to the minute.

**You will need a practice clock where the child can turn the clock hands.

There is a PDF download available for $4.00.  A black and white printed copy is available for $10.85, and new in November 2011 is a PDF version of the book enabled for annotation.  (Yes that means you can have your student fill it in on the computer!)
Keep it or Leave it?  Well, I really liked this worktext.  The explanations are easy, and we progressed quickly.  My daughter fully understood each section without much effort on my part.  Good job Math Mammoth!  The many examples and questions were easy to work through--and, although I didn't need it much I liked that the answers were included too.  I was glad this included calendar information to round out the whole "time" concept.  This got a thumbs up at our house.  We've also checked out the 300 free worksheets and samples.  We have a few of the the Math Mammoth products and will probably be using more.  If you're even slightly considering the program it's worth visiting the website to check out all options and prices/discounts.
