Ray's for Today provides you with the time-tested content of the original Ray's Arithmetic series but in a format that's easier for homeschoolers to implement! This updated series is structured into daily lessons and grade levels and provides parents with additional help on presenting lessons, helping students grasp material, and adjusting the pace to your child's learning style.
Ray's for Today retains the emphasis on oral language, mental math, and math reasoning to help students build a practical understanding of underlying principles through orderly, systematic instruction. Lessons are presented in everyday language and move through three stages of exposure, practice, and mastery. Hands-on activities and visual 'walk-throughs' move students' understanding from concrete real-life examples to mental images and finally to abstract concepts. Real-life problem solving and story problems are also integrated throughout the text. Each level targets three to four essential skills, which are then reviewed and built upon in subsequent levels.
This kit contains both the student text and the instructor's manual for Level 5. The Student Text features lessons that are written directly to the student along with a worked example and questions to answer. Review practice exercises are also integrated throughout.
Level 5 will help students:
- be proficient at recognizing and working with numbers through the billions
- be proficient at multiplying and dividing by a multi-digit number
- be proficient at all four operations with fractions and mixed numbers
- be proficient with decimal concepts
- practice factoring and related concepts
- be introduced to percents and ratios
The instructor's manual explains how to use the program. Individual lessons feature the lesson objective in bold followed by bullet-pointed lessons that explain each step and include examples where needed. A section of reproducibles is included, followed by a line-listed answer key for the student book.
Both books are loose-leaf and three-hole-punched; parents may wish to place into a three-ring-binder (not included).
This kit contains:
- Level 4 Instructor's Guide, 260 loose-leaf pages.
- Level 4 Student Book, 360 loose-leaf pages.
