The Beginning Math Art Workbooks are designed to reinforce basic math fact memorization combined with visual motor skills. These workbooks add a degree of creativity to basic fact memorization and can be used as a pre-cursor to the more advanced Designs In Math series.
The Beginning Math Art books combine the creativity and motor skill activities from the Creating Line Designs series with exercises to exhance basic math skill memorization.
If a student already has a foundation of following instructions, working with a pencil & ruler, and coloring, starting with the Beginning Math Art book closest to the math level of the student is recommended. If the student does not have the necessary fine motor skill, beginning with either Beginning Math Art, Book 1, or Creating Line Designs, Book 1 is recommended.
All books are written to aid classroom and ‘at home educators’ in activities to reinforce math facts and perceptual-motor skills. The best time to introduce the Beginning Math Art worksheets is when a student is learning basic math facts. During instructing, it is important to ensure proper use of a ruler or straight edge is addressed. (Tips included in each book.)
Beginning Math Art workbooks contain over 25 Math Worksheets each and have individual answer keys provided.
All math art worksheets are reproducible for classroom use.
Beginning Math Art, Book 1
Beginning Math Art, Book 1 is an Addition & Subtraction workbook designed to not only reinforce math lessons, but increase and enhance visual motor skills in a fun way. Activities 1 through 10 are addition, activities 11 through 20 are subtraction problems and activities 21 through 29 are a combination of addition and subtraction. The math problems students are asked to solve become progressively more difficult with each design so they can easily be used to supplement classroom and at home lessons.
After completing each problem students then use a straight edge and pencil to connect the correct answer to the problem they completed lifting their pencil in the appropriate places to complete a design, which can be colored with crayons, pens or colored pencils.
Beginning Math Art, Book 1 is recommended for 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students. Each activity is classroom reproducible and an answer key is provided for each individual worksheet.
Beginning Math Art, Book 2
Beginning Math Art, Book 2 is a continuation of the Math Art series, which has another set of 29 unique designs, but in this book the math problems are multiplication and division. Similar to Beginning Math Art Book 1 & Book 2's multiplication and division problems become increasing more difficult with each design.
This is another great supplement to at home or classroom math lessons, which is not only fun, but simultaneously enhances a students visual motor skills. As with Beginning Math Art, Book 1, the designs may be colored at completion, which is great for a classroom setting where students may not all complete the problems and designs at the same time, and is also fun for students whether they are home schooled or in a classroom setting.
Beginning Math Art, Book 2 is recommended for 2nd and 3rd grade students. Each activity is classroom reproducible and an answer key is provided for each individual worksheet.
