Critical Thinking Detective™ – Math
SKU: 3837
$8.99These popular, easytouse detective cases are suitable for Grades 6 – 12+. Students must apply critical reading, critical thinking, and mathematical reasoning. The mathematics needed to solve these cases require the application of common middle school math concepts, but don’t be fooled! The real challenges are to first identify the clues by synthesizing from different witnesses and suspects, and then determine the necessary math needed to turn the clues into evidence. Some cases may be more challenging for younger students, but teachers and parents can always use the optional hints provided to help students that reach a dead end. The cases also develop observation skills, reading comprehension, and deductive and inductive thinking skills. Learning to identify and evaluate evidence is the very heart of critical thinking. 48 pages. Grades 612. From The Critical Thinking Company. Learn More 
Grammar for the WellTrained Mind: Purple (Student) Workbook by Susan WiseBauer
SKU: 7947
$39.95Purple Workbook , along with the accompanying Key and the Core Instructor Text (sold separately, Item #7946), make up Grammar for the WellTrained Mind: a complete course that takes students from basic definitions (“A noun is the name of a person, place, thing, or idea”) through advanced sentence structure and analysis—all the grammar skills needed to write and speak with eloquence and confidence. This innovative program combines the three essential elements of language learning: understanding and memorizing rules (prescriptive teaching), repeated exposure to examples of how those rules are used (descriptive instruction), and practice using those rules in exercises and in writing (practical experience). Each year, parents and teachers go through the dialogue, rules, and examples in the Core Instructor Text; students follow along in the Student Workbook. This repetition solidifies the concepts, definitions, and examples in the student’s mind. The Student Workbook Key (sold separately, Item #7948) , provides not only answers, but also explanations for the parent/instructor, and guidance as to when the answers might be ambiguous (as, in English, they often are). 602 pages.

Grammar for the WellTrained Mind: Core Instructor Text by Susan WiseBauer
SKU: 7946
$34.95Grammar for the WellTrained Mind takes students from basic definitions (“A noun is the name of a person, place, thing, or idea”) through advanced sentence structure and analysis—all the grammar skills needed to write and speak with eloquence and confidence. This innovative program combines the three essential elements of language learning: understanding and memorizing rules (prescriptive teaching), repeated exposure to examples of how those rules are used (descriptive instruction), and practice using those rules in exercises and in writing (practical experience).

This repetition solidifies the concepts, definitions, and examples in the student’s mind. The Core Instructor Text provides not only rules and examples, but scripted dialogue that makes it possible for any parent or teacher to use the program effectively, along with instructor notes that thoroughly explain ambiguities and difficulties.
 Scripted lessons make it possible for any parent or teacher to use the program effectively. Stepbystep instruction takes students from the most basic concepts through advanced grammatical concepts such as modal and hortative verbs and multiple functions of noun clauses.
 Extensive diagramming exercises reinforce the rules and help technical and visual learners to understand and use the English language effectively. All diagrams are thoroughly explained to the instructor/parent.
 Text for examples and exercises are drawn from great works of literature, as well as from wellwritten nonfiction texts in science, mathematics, and the social sciences.
 Regular review is built into each year of work.
 Core text is designed to be used effectively with students from fifth grade through high school, regardless of background.
 The program is easily customizable to each student’s strengths and weaknesses

Pattern Explorer Level 2 Grades 79
SKU: 7622
$14.99Mathematics and science can be thought of as a search for patterns and structure. This 96page book provides rich and diverse collections of pattern problems for students to explore, investigate, discover, and create. The five different types of pattern problems found in this book are: •Pattern Predictor •Equality Explorer •Sequence Sleuth •Number Ninja •Function Finder There are optional hints and detailed solutions. From a developmental perspective, the ability to recognize a pattern signals the transition from concrete to abstract thinking. So having students explore pattern problems helps sensitize them to the discovery process that provides a foundation for authentic learning and abstraction. These activities are independent and selfcontained, but tend to build on one another and get gradually more sophisticated. This collection deliberately avoids use of variables, but involves reasoning that lays a genuine foundation for algebraic thinking and technique. Calculators are never needed, and their use is discouraged. Grades 79. From The Critical Thinking Company. Learn More

Teaching to Intuition by Edric Cane
SKU: 1994
$16.95Constructive Implementation of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics Through very practical strategies that teachers can immediately borrow for their classes, Teaching to Intuition seeks to address the widespread estrangement from mathematics displayed by many. Focusing on essential elementary and middle school topics, at that early stage where the gaps begin and where too many children lose ground and lose hope, Teaching to Intuition seeks to reconcile students with mathematics itself. It proposes strategies to connect the facts and processes of mathematics to our children’s intimate sense of understanding and helps them see mathematics as an emanation of realities and thinking structures that are already theirs. 190 pages.
