Description & Features

Analogies occur in life and frequently in high-stakes tests. Understanding analogies and the ability to reason analogically (reasoning used to identify, evaluate, and solve an analogy) are important problem-solving skills which are an essential part of mathematical development. The immediate benefit is to recognize and solve simple analogies. The long-term benefits are improved reasoning skills that enable students to break problems into their component parts, recognize analogies embedded in arguments, and evaluate them.

The 152 analogies in this program teach students to break problems down into their component parts, making it easier to recognize familiar formats that enable students to produce solutions. These analogies are designed around the grade-appropriate standards identified by the National Council of Teaching Mathematics.

Product Reviews Write a review for this product

"This has been a great supplement to our current math program which does not focus on analogies. I will be starting my kinder out on Math Analogies Level 1 when she starts first grade. I feel it has helped to round out our math curriculum for the year." - Julie, Missouri
"My son loved it & it was easily completed on the computer." - Alane, Schoolhouse Review Crew
"I believe Math Analogies is a good program at a fair price. The analogies give your student a chance to work through problems with a different perspective. With the link for 'How to Solve an Analogy' we found a simple animated walk-through of sample analogies, with a clear, easy to understand, voice narration. By the end of our first session (all 4 attempts) with Math Analogies my son was able to recognize that problems can be broken down to be solved. I think this is great for any homeschooler whether you have state testing or not, as it will help broaden your child's reasoning and thinking skills. " - Debbie, Canada
"What a fun little learning tool! Math Analogies Level 1 is geared towards the 2nd-3rd grade age range. I’ll admit though, when I sat down to play around a bit before handing it over to my son, I had a blast! These problems really get you thinking! What is nice about this program is that it's really a ‘just go for it’ type of program. You can give a much or as little assistance as you want. You can click on the 'How to solve analogies' link if your child needs help getting started. The problems missed are repeated, so they learn through trial and error. It can be repeated again and again. There isn’t anything flashy or fancy about it, the problem solving in and of itself is the entertainment." - Jen, Homeschooling Mom With A Master's Degree In Early Childhood Education, http://chestnutgroveacademy.blogspot.com
"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
"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
"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." - Reviewer, Learning® Magazine
"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
