- We want Oldest Son to be on track in concrete math skills as he enters USA 4th grade
- Both Oldest Son and Youngest Son have an interest and natural aptitude for math
- It is easy
We have purchased the 3rd Grade Everyday Math books. Oldest Son can easily complete the workbook with very little outside help.
Oldest Son actually enjoys doing the math so there is no parental hassle factor. We are encouraging him to make his way through the workbook at his own pace - no pressure. So far so good.
And, of course, we have Everyday Math on order for Youngest Son too.
P.S. In the interest of full disclosure, I should mention both Husband and I are "math people" - between the two of us some of our credentials include an MS in Mathematics, Enrolled Actuary, High School Math Teacher ... so the kids are doomed to have at least part of our geekiness ...
