An excellent workbook to master the understanding of basic arithmetic concepts such as addition, multiplication etc. and arithmetic properties such as associative property, distributive property etc. The many examples and exercises facilitate the user of this guided notebook. The material is well understood and known by the time all the activities are completed. In an era when true knowledge has been replaced by “google it” it is refreshing to know schools can find tools in the market to counter the decline of real knowledge. I consider “Math Rescue Guide” a must have workbook in all classrooms committed to prepare children to be comfortable with arithmetic and seed love for arithmetic and later mathematics in general.
