Math facts are the keys that open the doors to being able to solve harder computation and word problems.
Timed tests do not help children learn math facts, strategies do! After showing what addition and subtraction mean, students should memorize the math facts.
If Common Core matters in your area, we offer books with and without mention of Common Core. See below for a list of Common Core State Standards that Two Plus Two Is Not Five supports.

I absolutely love both your workbooks! I’ve taught 2nd and 3rd grade and have used both. I love how you taught addition and subtraction at the same time so students can see the connection. I also love the way you introduce the multiplication with “tricks.”
I’ve purchased all of your books and had much success with using them with my child. I’ve recommended them to other parents. Thank you so much for a great product.
I have Two Plus Two Is Not Five and I like it! I used it this school year and plan to continue using it during summer school. When planning summer school, I wanted something similar for multiplication and decided to look online to see if you had written a multiplication book. I was delighted that you did!

Two Plus Two Is Not Five can be used by itself or with Addition and Subtraction: Beyond Math Facts. The workbooks are coordinated so that they can be used together.
Two Plus Two Is Not Five supports the following Common Core State Standards:
2.OA.2 Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
1.OA.3 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract. Examples: If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.)
1.OA.4 Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
1.OA.5 Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2).
1.OA.6 Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 – 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
