  • Chapters include a variety of problem types (word problems, data analysis, computations) that approach concepts from different angles
  • It contains end-of-chapter assessments and cumulative exams to check understanding
  • Emphasis on repetitive practice through increasingly complex addition/subtraction problems

Product Description


Math Mammoth focuses on conceptual understanding. Concepts are often explained with visual models, followed by exercises using those models. These visual models can take the place of manipulatives for many children; however, it is very easy to add corresponding manipulatives to the lessons if so desired. The curriculum is mastery-oriented. This means it concentrates fairly long on a topic, delving into its various aspects. This promotes conceptual understanding, as opposed to spiral curricula that often tend to jump from topic to topic too much. There is a strong emphasis on mental math and number sense. It requires very little teacher preparation, which is a big benefit to most teachers/parents. The curriculum has no separate teacher's manual nor is it scripted. All the instruction is written directly to the student in the worktext, and there also exist accompanying videos where you can see Maria herself teach the material. After each chapter introduction, you will find a list of Internet links and resources (games, quizzes, animations, etc.) that can be used for fun, illustrations, and further practice. For addition and subtraction facts, you can use our online practice program (free).


Math Mammoth Grade 2 (Light Blue Series) covers three-digit numbers, measuring, regrouping in addition and subtraction, money, and an introduction to multiplication. Common Core aligned.
