Crack the code of word problems. Justin is back to show you how!
With logical, simple steps, Detective Justin Time and Amber Waves tackle one math puzzle (word problem) after another. Every word problem they face in their sleuthing appears right in the Workbook as well! The Answer Key provides each solution.
As our heroes progress in the case, the word problems get trickier. But they gain the skills to press on (as will your children). Even so, will Detective Justin and Amber Waves ever find the pork-napped pig?
This hilarious adventure gives your children the tools to face pesky word problems with confidence. Unique among the popular MathTacular series, MathTacular 4 covers a very wide scope of mathematical skills as it focuses on one goal: how to solve word problems with confidence. The problems start with simple addition and continue to more advanced problems with fraction and algebra. And even if your kids aren't ready for the more advanced skills (like fractions and algebra) at the end of the video, they'll love watching Amber Waves and Justin Time chase the case to the end.
The MathTacular 4 DVD will automatically stop after our heroes introduce each new word problem (unless you set it to play straight through). With the workbook in hand, your kids can solve the puzzle right then and there. With the push of a button, your children can restart the DVD and watch Justin Time and Amber Waves carefully work through the solution. Your children can solidify each new concept with 5 extra practice problems. Mathematical skills used in the word problems start with simple addition and work up to ratios, fractions and algebra.
The handy Tool Kit in the back of the Workbook provides everything a kid might need to solve those pesky word problems. You'll find lists of:
The Answer Key is a parent's dream. You'll find answers to each problem in the workbook and see all the steps on the way to that answer. And since there's more than one way to stuff a taco you'll even see alternate ways to solve some problems. If your kids get stuck on a problem, a quick peek inside the Answer Key will help them get started or see where they went wrong.
Finally, with MathTacular 4, word problems are fun, practical ... and unbelievably understandable!
This set with the DVD, Workbook, and Answer Key is great for grades 6 and up. (The DVD alone is great for grades 4 and up.)

Mathtacular is a great way for my child to learn. Having a child that has ADHD, it's a challenge to keep her focused. Mathtacular is so fun and engaging she Loves it!! Her first day she completed 12 pages in her workbook. I had to stop her and make her take a break. We love everything about Mathtacular! My daughter suggested, wouldn't it be great if they made other subjects as well. I couldn't agree more.
