Subtraction: Booklet 2 - Student Workbook

Subtraction:  Booklet 2 - Student Workbook - Beginning Circle Subtraction

Student Workbook 48 pages - stapled booklet 

The Student Workbook has worksheets and practice pages.

This unique approach to subtraction was developed by Prof. Emeritus Michael Butler at the world renowned UCI Farm Elementary School.

  • The Patterns in Arithmetic series teaches for understanding using a discovery and inductive approach.
  • Circle Math Subtraction is our unique way of teaching regrouping.  It is the process of breaking up a large problem into many small problems, solving each small problem, and adding the results.
  • The student is guided to find patterns and generalize those patterns in to working knowledge of how procedures work and why they work that way.
  • Parents are guided though a series of lessons that give sample dialogues that a teacher might have with a student who is learning.
