Math Analogies Beginning
Understanding analogies and the ability to reason analogically (reasoning used to identify, evaluate, and solve an analogy) are important problem-solving skills. Problem-solving is an essential part of mathematical development. Analogies teach students to break problems down into their component parts, making it easier to recognize familiar formats that enable students to produce solutions.
The Math Analogies in this book ask students to draw and verbalize their answers. The drawings develop fine motor skills and the verbalization develops communication skills. The analogies in this book are designed around the grade-appropriate standards identified by the National Council of Teaching Mathematics.

Table of Contents
"This was a great tool to have students think about math other than computation ad word problems. I like how it linked each analogy to the NCTM standards." -Learning™ Magazine Reviewer
"I planned to have my first grader slowly work through his Math Analogies book all year. He finished in two weeks because he loved it so much!" -Laurie, California
"I really liked the way that analogies were presented in a non-threatening way. As a child I always dreaded the analogies on test because I didn't understand the relationships given, but this gives a child practice with analogies and drawing conclusions about similarities and differences between pairs." -The Old Schoolhouse Reviewer
"Math Analogies stimulated the logical processing of my child' learning while allowing him to relate in an enjoyable manner by drawing pictures." -iParenting Reviewer
"He loved it so much that he made it to page 10 before he knew it!" -Danielle, Homeschool Parent
"For my students, it was a great practice in preparation for the end of grade (EOG) math test." -Teacher's Choice Award Reviewer
