About the Book

MAVA Math: Grade Reviews, primarily for students in grades one through five, provides 220 one-page cumulative reviews (44 for each of the 5 grades). Each cumulative review has 10 problems, although a problem may have multiple parts, providing even more practice. A 28-page curriculum outline details the skills and concepts in the reviews. Pages contain high-quality, rigorous math and only math. The book also includes a 5-page discussion about the importance of cumulative reviews as well as tips on how best to use the book. The accompanying MAVA Math: Grade Reviews Solutions provides all answers and solutions. Please find all MAVA Math products as well as sample pages at www.mavabooks.com. The MAVA Math series believes that students should: have plentiful practice; work at their own pace; copy problems minimally; show appropriate work when needed; attack both short and long challenges; develop number sense and mental math; learn numerous strands of math concurrently; and use math books free of distractions and clutter.


About the Author

Dr. Marla Weiss, highly respected among her colleagues and students, is a mathematics educator with four degrees: BA in Mathematics, MA in Applied Mathematics, ME in Applied Mathematics, and PhD in Mathematics Education. She has done classroom teaching, school consulting, test preparation, individual tutoring, curriculum design, teacher workshops, math team coaching, materials development, student evaluations, math series analysis, and textbook writing. Her students have won hundreds of awards collectively in MATHCOUNTS, Mu Alpha Theta, Florida Math League, and the International Computer Problem Solving Contest. Additionally, Dr. Weiss owned and operated a private education center with a focus on math offerings. Her background is unique. As the daughter of a mathematics educator, she was reared in a household full of math books that her father used in his multi-faceted mathematics work. He was one of the first math teachers in the country trained in the Sputnik era “New Math.” Not only did Dr. Weiss receive this education in junior high, but also she traveled in the summers with her father in the United States and Canada as he trained other teachers in the movement. Moreover, Dr. Weiss was both a high school student and college counselor at the prestigious (Arnold) Ross Program in mathematics supported then by the National Science Foundation. This grounding in number theory, abstract algebra, and logic, along with other advanced classes, gave her almost a college major in math by the time of her high school graduation. She has taught in various settings including the Duke University Talent Identification Program. Her experience as a computer programmer further enriches her logical approach to math.
