2008 was definitely a year marked by decreasing numbers. Stock market, holiday retail sales, consumer confidence, employment… Lots of subtraction. So, in paying respects to the passing of the year, we’re closing with a significant expansion to the subtraction worksheets on the site. Let’s all agree to let the subtraction stop with that.
For 2009, optimism reigns and I’ll be focusing on significant expansion to the topics involving multiplication. Here’s hoping the rest of the world does likewise.
Happy New Year!
Dr. Donald Crawford paid a visit to DadsWorksheets.com last week and suggested perhaps renaming the worksheets posted here to avoid conflict with the commercial Rocket Math curriculum he has developed over at http://www.rocketmath.net. You can read the discussion at the bottom of the Spaceship Math Strategy post, but given that this is supposed to be a low-stress activity on my end, changing the names of the worksheets to address everyone’s concern was definitely easy.
Meanwhile, if you’re a teacher looking to purchase a full curriculum for Rocket Math, be sure to check out Dr. Crawford’s new web site at the link above.
