This is the third book in the Math Made a Bit Easier series by independent math tutor Larry Zafran. It is a book of sixty lesson plans for tutors, parents, and homeschoolers. Each lesson plan includes all the components of a typical classroom lesson such as aim, motivation, warm-up exercises, demonstrative examples, questions for thought and discussion, and connections to earlier and later material. The math content in this book is directly aligned and ideally used in conjunction with the first book of the series and its companion workbook of practice exercises. It covers the topics which comprise the foundation of math beginning with lessons in basic arithmetic, followed by basic operations, negative numbers, fractions, decimals, percents, and basic probability and statistics. If these topics are not completely mastered, later work will prove to be quite difficult. This is especially true of algebra. The book includes a chapter on how to be an effective math tutor, as well as a chapter on how to optionally incorporate meditation instruction to help students get into a relaxed and alert state of mind which is ideal for learning math and taking exams.DEMONSTRATIVE EXAMPLES: Use counters or similar means to show that the following are a fact family: 8A3, 3A8, 24Am3, 24Am8.
