Your child will be the beneficiary of over 55 years of teaching elementary children to master traditional arithmetic. Arithmetic at all levels is presented as part of the truth and order that God has built into the universe. Learning fractions this year will become a positive experience because of A Beka’s clear instruction and practice. As in the other skills subjects, the A Beka program builds a foundation necessary for more abstract concepts taught later. The Grade 4 Arithmetic Child Kit contains the text and correlated assessments for the grade 4 arithmetic program. Combine this kit with the Grade 4 Arithmetic Parent Kit, and you can confidently teach and guide your fourth grader as he masters the concrete facts that build mathematical understanding.
• Step-by-step instruction—Children learn when concepts are explained step by step in a way that makes sense to them. One of the hallmarks of A Beka arithmetic is the clear explanations and examples in the text and on the worksheets.
• Daily practice—Colorful daily worksheets provide planned practice in computation and application of familiar and new concepts. The daily arithmetic combination drills will keep your child on his toes!
• Spiral reinforcement of learning—There is no time to forget when your child receives regular, systematic review and practice as each new concept is built on the old. This reinforcing and building of concepts and skills in a spiral progression throughout the year—and from grade to grade in the A Beka curriculum!—puts learning into long-term memory. Your child will know it!
• Emphasis on problem solving—Your child will have daily opportunity to apply mathematical concepts to real-life situations. Many of his word problems reinforce Christian principles.
