You can teach this to k-4 students without a grade level or ability level specified. This is a system that starts teaching what a number is and then how to memorize combination patterns in a way that helps students remember faster and longer. There is A built in memory code that associates the numbers to a value, an animal and its name. It then builds on the memory code into addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. “The Fun Book” starts as a coloring book and then is used as a work book. The students can work on the “DotMath for kids” system at their own pace so no child is held back and no students needs to feel like they are behind because they all work at their own speed. You can find the “dotmath for kids” site with the search box. You can copy the charts from the site for FREE if you agree to the site rules.
