If your family already has Math-U-See's Integer Block Kit and the Beta instructional DVD, this is what you need for an up-and-coming math whiz! The Math-U-SeeBeta Student Pack contains the student workbook with lesson-by-lesson worksheets, systematic review pages, and application and enrichment pages. The pack also includes the booklet of Beta tests.
Beta builds on the foundation in Alpha by applying students' mastery of single-digit addition and subtraction to multiple-digit addition and subtraction. One of the stepping stones between these two levels is the concept of place value, which is an important milestone for truly grasping any multiple-digit operation. Major concepts and skills include understanding place value and using it to add or subtract, fluently adding and subtracting any combination of whole numbers, solving for an unknown addend, and solving abstract and real-world problems involving addition and subtraction. Time, currency, measurement, inequalities, and graphs are some of the other topics your student will explore in this course.
