Learning math facts is never dull when kids "rock out" while learning addition and subtraction facts. Upbeat music, energetic performers, and colorful action make these math tunes lots of fun to sing along with and learn. Kids quickly learn sums up to 18 and differences from 18. Available in both a DVD video version and an audio CD/book version.
Ages 6 & up. Approx. 40 minutes.

On our Addition & Subtraction Rock DVD video, the basic concepts are clearly illustrated visually, using familiar kid-appealing objects. Then delayed-answer drills challenge students to beat the performers by solving facts before the answers are read aloud—much like animated flash cards.
The audio CD version of Addition & Subtraction Rock includes a CD and illustrated book with activity pages including our very popular math mazes. Teachers and parents have permission to photocopy the pages for instructional use. These reproducible activity pages are a great way to supplement your child's learning with the "add and subtract songs" on the CD.
Whether you choose DVD or the CD and book version, Addition & Subtraction Rock is great for developing speed and accuracy for beginning learners as well as older kids. Facts are presented in random order with delayed answers so that learners can check their progress. Learners of all ages at home or in the classroom will love this fun, musical way to learn addition and subtraction facts.
