Patterns in Arithmetic is a series of books and booklets for home school and classroom teachers about how to teach arithmetic using an inquiry method. A child's innate love of learning is encouraged through hands-on exploration, discovery, inventions, and the creation of models. Children learn about addition, subtraction, patterns, place value, and logic by building models, looking for patterns, playing games, making generalizations, and recording discoveries in ways that make sense to them at their own individual pace. These books are a collection of lessons that will help parents, teachers, and students become better mathematicians and to have students learn to think as mathematicians think.
