Math Mammoth Clock workbook is designed especially for homeschooling parents. It is a work text (meaning it contains both the teaching and the exercises) that you will find easy to teach from without... More > the need of a separate teacher's manual.
This book covers reading the clock, figuring out simple time intervals, and using the calendar, all in one book. The topics progress starting from the first grade level to the third grade level. So, your child can work the pages of this book in different time periods if desired. The lessons are divided into the grade-levels: reading the clock to the half-hour for first grade; reading the clock to the five-minute intervals is second grade; and reading the clock to the minute is third grade level. The material in this book becomes more difficult towards the end.
You will need a practice clock so the child can turn the clock hands. Reading the clock is a skill that will be used in everyday situations.< Less
Math Mammoth Integers worktext covers all important integer (signed numbers) topics for middle school (grades 5-8), with instructions written directly to the student.

Next we move on to modeling additions and subtractions as movements on a number line. Another model used in the book for addition is that of counters or chips. One lesson explains the shortcut for subtracting a negative integer using three different viewpoints (difference, counters, and number line movements).
Multiplication and division of integers is explained using counters, first of all, and then relying on the properties of multiplication and division. We use multiplication and division in the context of enlarging or shrinking geometric figures in the coordinate grid.< Less
