2Way too simpleDec 13, 2012
By G. Friedman
I bought this book to help my 4th grade daughter, who needed some extra practice with her school math.

She attends a regular, NYC, public school. The subjects covered in this book match those she's studying,
but the exercises are MUCH easier than her school work. For class she uses Everyday Mathematics, Grade 4.
The exercises in Everyday Math are much more difficult, covering many special cases. The problems in
Super Math, only cover the simple, obvious cases. Practicing with this book is not much help. It may be useful for a
3rd grader, but not for someone in 4th grade.

4Very helpful book, but could be improved uponAug 11, 2014
By Aundrea
My daughter transitioned school districts and the new district has a much harder math curriculum. She really struggled last year (3rd grade) and we ended up both miserable most weeknights with homework problems. I decided to get a jump start on 4th grade math by getting this work book. I figured I could attempt to teach her and reinforce some of the concepts, so ideally 4th grade will be less stressful. I'm pretty happy with this book. It covers a very wide range of concepts and is set up in a convenient way. Each lesson is a few pages, so it's easy to divide it up to do a lesson a day.

I only have a few issues with the book. First, I think there could be better explanations for some things. For example, the long division section has a great explanation and examples on how to do it, but comparing fractions with different numerators and denominators doesn't have a good section explaining how to do it. My daughter is struggling most with fractions, so that's why that sticks out. Some of the book seems too easy (adding and subtracting big numbers) and some of it seems more difficult (again I'm thinking of fractions).

Second, it's great that the book is like a 3-in-1, with "Basic Math", "Math Games and Puzzles" and "Math in Action". But, it seems a little too spread out. Like "Length" is covered in each of the 3 books, so you will find length problems on pages 61, 151 and 261. I wish all the concepts would be clustered together with the basic concept first, then puzzles and games and then the math in action. It took me awhile to realize how it's set up. So now I have her complete the concept in each of the 3 sections before moving on, which is a little annoying flipping all over the book.

Despite my gripes, I feel this is a very helpful book. My daughter excels in every other subject, so I didn't want a generic book with all subjects. I really just wanted to focus exclusively on math.

5Great Variety of problemsMar 07, 2013
By S. Power
This is a great workbook with a variety of problems for kids to practice, from basic computation, problem solving, word problems and a lot of games complete with answers so kids can check their own work. My daughter actually wanted to do some of the problems.

5Sylvan 4th Grade Super Math SuccessSep 11, 2012
By DeAna L Middleton
This book seems to cover all areas I was hoping it would. The beginning of the book is a great review of 3rd grade math that helped him prepare for 4th grade.
