If you are one of the many parents who are uncomfortable helping your child with math, then Dr. Wright's Kitchen Table Math: Books 1, 2 & 3 are for you! This three-book set starts with counting and covers all of elementary school math. The set provides step-by-step guides to how you can help your child develop math skills and do well in school. It also includes activities and games so that you and your child can have fun while exploring these early stages of your child's mathematical journey.
Book 1 covers counting up to 100, single-digit arithmetic, and beginning fractions. It also has sections on geometry, time, measurements, probability, and graphing.
Book 2 focuses on arithmetic for multi-digit numbers and fractions. It also has sections on number sense, the history of numbers, and playing with numbers.
Book 3 covers the non-arithmetic parts of elementary school math. It covers solving equations and word problems, probability and statistics, graphing, geometry, measurements, time, money, and reasoning.
As a lifelong lover of numbers and a teacher of math for 35 years, I find Chris Wright's Kitchen Table Math to be extraordinarily helpful in helping young children learn numerical concepts and enjoy math. All ideas are clearly explained and readily accessible to adults and children. One of my favorite parts of the book is the number of fun and engaging activities. How I would have loved to have had some of Chris' suggestions to use when my own children were growing up. I have bought copies of this book for my several grandchildren, a great niece and great nephew and for the daughter of a young friend of mine. I highly recommend Kitchen Table Math as a way to help children love working with numbers and recognize that math is a fun and natural part of the world.
