Disclosure: I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.
Math Essentials has created a powerful library of books to aid in teaching, learning, and reviewing concepts. Today’s review features a detailed look at the Speed Wheel Drills for Addition, Speed Wheel Drills for Division, and Speed Wheel Drills for Multiplication books. Each book is available for purchase via Amazon.
We received a physical copy of the
Speed Wheel Drills for Addition, Speed Wheel Drills for Division, and Speed Wheel Drills for Multiplication books. Each book is 140 pages and designed to help your child practice and recall the math facts commonly used in higher-level subjects. To properly use these books you will need a writing utensil and a timer. The books begin with a helpful guide sharing instructions on how to use the Speed Wheels. Next, is a double-sided page displaying 21 Important Math Tips, penned by the award-winning author, Richard W. Fisher.
A Resource Center is located in the back of each book which houses information that will benefit your child for many years. The six-page glossary houses math terms, definitions, and a few examples. A page showing examples and names of math symbols as well as multiplication, addition, and division tables are also included. A chart featuring squares, square roots, fractions with decimal equivalents, and a large answer key complete this resource area.
The Speed Wheel Drills for Addition, Speed Wheel Drills for Division, and Speed Wheel Drills for Multiplication books are all designed exactly the same, with the exception of practicing different concepts. Each speed wheel has 12 numbers to practice adding, multiplying, or dividing by the middle number. A space for grading and marking time is also provided. There are multiple wheels on each page but your child can work through as many as they feel comfortable with. Tracking the time helps them improve their retention and accuracy as the practice continues.
Fun Facts about Speed Wheel Drills:

OUR ROUTINE & FINAL THOUGHTS
We used each book throughout the past weeks as we began our new school year. Bam Bam used the beginning of the addition book while Bear used the multiplication and division books. I decided to include them throughout the week as fun warm-up activities, “to get our brain juices flowing and going,” as I always say. The concept for completing the speed drills was easy to understand for both my 2nd grader and 8th grader. They found the wheels to be a creative way to practice their skills and work on recalling those frequently used math techniques.
After using these books for several weeks, we highly recommend the
Speed Wheel Drills for Addition, Speed Wheel Drills for Division, andSpeed Wheel Drills for Multiplication books. Math Essentials has designed a creative, safe self-competition-styled way to practice math facts.
