A Beka Book
Arithmetic 2
Students begin to learn new concepts right away as they review concepts from first grade. A daily seatwork page is entirely review, while the daily classwork page contains practice of a new concept and practice of review concepts. Six themes—pond, transportation, children around the world, jungle, workers and helpers, and camping—create interest and teach facts. The book and curriculum provide continuous practice in place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, money, temperature, time, perimeter, story problems, estimation, rounding, graphs, the ruler, and English and metric measures. Clear explanations and abundant practice make carrying and borrowing easy for the students. Teacher Curriculum guide necessary for class content.

Christian Light Publications
Christian Light Education Mathematics Sunrise Edition
CLE’s Mathematics program offers solid math instruction that teaches from a Christian perspective at a very reasonable price. Each grade level course includes a one- or two-volume teacher’s guide and ten LightUnit student workbooks. (Third grade has a single volume for teacher's guide.) A few other items are either required or optional, especially in the early grades. CLE has built in continuous review. The program emphasizes mastering math facts and computation skills, often taking students into more challenging territory in some areas than do other math programs. Daily flash card practice and speed drills help students master the math facts. In first and second grade, students work on the addition and subtraction facts. Second graders also begin to learn the multiplication facts. Mental math exercises are included beginning at the end of second grade and continuing throughout all levels through eighth grade. CLE sells customized Addition and Subtraction Flash Cards that are coded and come with dividers for setting up a systematic approach for drill and review that both circulates the cards and arranges them for daily drills. While CLE sells multiplication and division flash cards, these are fairly standard, so you can use another set if you already have them. The speed drills are found at the back of each LightUnit book for grades one through five and then in the first LightUnit of grade six. The first LightUnit of each course after first grade thoroughly reviews previously taught concepts and facts with pre-tests and practice sets. The purpose is both for review after a ''summer break'' and as a diagnostic test for those who might just be starting the CLE program. If students do well on each of the pre-tests, they can skip the practice sets and move on.
