Compilation of third and fourth grade concepts requiring critical thinking skills: place value and expanded form, number patterns, rounding and estimation, interpreting graphs, single and multi-step word problems, time to minute, hours before and after, measuring to nearest centimeter or inch, fraction equivalencies from pictures, fraction sums from pictures, fraction of a set, properties, geometry, and logic. Graphics printed with black ink on ivory cover stock.

Three-way cardstock matching cards. Answer keys and organization labels also included. (Lamination recommended for heavy use; cutting required.) Recommended storage (not included): twenty drawers, boxes, or envelopes.

Blackline masters or Digital PDFs for written responses (answer keys included). Note that PDFs may be printed in color ink if desired. Recommended storage (not included): file.

The teacher's experience and the sequence of skills in the students' basic math program are the best guides in determining which skills should be introduced first. In general, the scope and sequence chart above can be used as a guide.

A number of sets for younger children are "color coded." Some teachers present all the levels with an exercise set, while others prefer to present all the blue (two-digit) exercises, progress to the pink (three-digit), and culminate with the green (four-digit).

Other skills such as Roman Numerals require no prerequisites other rhan an understanding of place value.  Such exercises can be presented any time.
