This 175 page math workbook is richly illustrated with photographs and hand drawn illustrations. The coil bound, softcover opens flat, making it easy for kids to make calculations, measure angles and follow instructions in the Things to Make and Do section.
The workbook is comprised of seven sections: A Day in the Life, A Trip to the Tack Store, Horse Science, Stable Management, Sports, Horse Facts and Math Games and Things to Make and Do. A summary page appears at the end of each section listing both the information about horses and the math used in the section. An Answers section allows kids to check their answers as they go.
Elapsed time, 24-hour time, money, measurement, fractions, patterns and graphs, angles, and more—its all part of the real-world of horses and its all here in the Level 1 workbook.
Note: Horse Lover’s Math is an accurate reflection of how math is used in the horse world. In the real world of horses, both metric and imperial measurement systems are still used. Here in Canada where metric is the official system, the weight of bales of hay is often described in pounds, and shavings for a horse’s stall are sold by the cubic foot. Part of educating yourself as a horse person requires you to become familiar with and fluent in both systems, much like a person who can speak two languages.
Internationally, having an understanding of horse height in hands is something a knowledgeable horse person should have. Hands are an imperial measurement. For this reason the Horse Height section of the Level 1workbook deals with how to read and understand horse height in hands.
Here’s what people are saying:
“We had a total of 8 girls and 4 loved horses but had never touched one before let alone been on one. They all loved it so when we sat down and they opened the math book and started looking through it one of the girls who hates school asked if she could do the whole book:-). We almost had to pick the mom up off the floor.” Heidi R., GA teacher, speaking about her Horse Lover’s Math and Reading Club
“This book is absolutely amazing! My daughter absolutely loves it, which I figured she would. However, I didn’t know what to expect in terms of math skills. I am extremely pleased with its quality and the actual math it covers. It is reviewing concepts we’ve already learned and need to practice and introducing her to to new material in a way she thoroughly enjoys, and more importantly, resonates with her because it involves horses. I will definitely be buying grade 5 when it comes out, and I’d love to see more horse lover workbooks in different subjects! Horse lovers grammar, spelling, or copywork would be so wonderful! Hint, hint :)” –Erin, homeschooling parent
