MathTacular 1 uses apples to help teach fractions, uses cars as rulers, and features a bear hunter who shares his snacks! Number recognition, counting, sorting, addition, subtraction, place value, money, time, estimation, and geometry are taught through using household items, fun situations, games, and a real-world emphasis that will keep kids engaged, entertained, and learning. This DVD is the first in MathTacular's 4-DVD Series. Carefully sequenced, it is suggested that the DVDs be used in order. Grades K-2. Approximately 4 hours (226 minutes). 88 segments with 17 topics covered.
Standard math manipulatives (Cuisenaire rods, counting bears, tangram boards, etc.) are used in some examples; a sold-separately Educational Kit with Manipulatives & adapted DVD is available, or parents may use manipulatives they already own.
MathTacular is a DVD-based adventure that will break through the barriers of math through creative, real-world examples, memorable examples, colorful visual learning, a fun tour guide "Professor Justin," and amusing problems that only math can solve! Show kids the practical value of Unbelievably Understandable Math™, as well as how easy it is to use in everyday situations. Giving children concrete concepts to build upon before using abstract mathematical symbols, MathTacular's hands-on emphasis will help children use and recall strategies learned from the videos.
