## 1. Math Mammoth News

1. Math Mammoth skills review workbook for grade 6 is now available. It provides extra practice of concepts for students who are using the grade 6 curriculum (not something every child needs).
2. A testimonial... From a parent of a child with special needs... so glad to hear they've gotten help! (This concerns books from the Blue series.)

I just wanted to say thank you. Your products are amazing. I have a very bright 13-year old who also has ASD, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyslexia, and executive function deficit. She has always really really struggled in math, and is at about a 5th grade level on a good day. He self-esteem has taken huge hits.

Because it is an important life skill, this summer we have really tried to focus on telling time and counting/understanding money. Your books are the first method that has ever worked for her. The breakdown, explanations, and practice have been just what she needed to finally be able to master these topics. Thank you for creating them and for keeping them so accessible and affordable!

## 2. VIDEOS for Math Mammoth curriculum

A reminder... for all old and new Math Mammoth users. There are quite a few VIDEOS available (for free) at :

www.mathmammoth.com/videos

I am still adding to the collection – because we filmed hundreds of these several years ago and I still haven't edited & uploaded them all. Just within the last few weeks I've uploaded a video on calculator usage and two geometry videos (all for 5th grade).

You can of course see these videos also on my Youtube channel, and by subscribing there, be notified of any new uploads.

## 4. Multiplication games with dice

An engaging hands-on game! Explore the concept of multiplication by grouping objects. This uses felt "planets" and eraser "rockets" but can be easily adapted.

## 5. Measurement misconceptions

Are you aware of this common misconception related to measuring... so-called "tick-counting"?

The so-called "broken rulers" exercises can help counteract that.

## 6. Just for fun!

Here's a joke... "Open Sesame"
