Description & Features

This software app uses topics and skills drawn from national math standards to prepare your students for advanced math courses and assessments that measure reasoning and reading comprehension in math.

Students read a short story that includes a chart, table, or graph. Next they answer critical thinking questions to improve their understanding of the math concept and develop their critical thinking (comprehension) skills. Students can't just scan the story for answers—they must carefully analyze and synthesize the information from the text and the chart, table, or graph to correctly identify and support their answers.

The questions in Math Detective® B1 are modeled after questions found on high-stakes math assessments, but require more critical thinking. These problems are excellent preparation for assessments that require students to explain and support their answers.

Stories are age-relevant, high-interest, and show students that math is integral to everyday activities.

The activities in Math Detective® B1 are organized around these math concepts:  
     •  Number and Numeration
     •  Operations
     •  Ratio, Proportion, and Percent
     •  Geometry and Introduction to Trigonometry
     •  Probability
     •  Statistics
     •  Algebra Concepts

Product Reviews Write a review for this product

"Very helpful for learning percentages and other math concepts." - Cece44, Illinois
"My daughter has had some difficulties with reading comprehension. We bought both Reading Detective® and Math Detective®. Both involve reading and we have seen huge improvements. At first they were very difficult for her but after a few tries she is now breezing through them. She finds them interesting and enjoys using the software. We have seen evidence of increased understanding when she's reading her textbooks, doing her homework and following directions." - Rosalie, GA
