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.

This 2006 Evvy Award Winning workbook is different because it gives students strategies to remember addition and subtraction facts, and provides written practice too!

  • Teachers, homeschool parents, special education and math resource teachers can use this book to teach math facts to students in any grade level.
  • Math facts are practiced by their trick or strategy names throughout the book.
  • 232 workbook pages have a clean design to appeal to both younger students and older students, including those in remedial math classes.
  • Students will see that they can be successful in completing pages without counting on fingers or using a chart!
  • This book includes record-keeping pages and a certificate of mastery!

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).


Our books are also available at your favorite school supply store, bookseller, or you can use the order form.

As a homeschool mom of four, I am always looking for the best way to teach my kids who all have different learning styles. I came across these math drill workbooks a couple of years ago when my oldest was struggling to memorize addition math facts. Since then, we have worked through addition, multiplication, and are now on the division workbook! The tricks are easy for them to remember, and the daily drill practice is perfect! Grateful we found them when we did!
