I have both (though I've never actually used either, so i'm speaking strictly from having looked at them, but not personal experience).Family Math for Young Children
has a lot about sorting, categorizing, counting, and spatial awareness, and not a lot of arithmetic. It isn't divided up into subjects in the same way as Family Math
, so I can't give you a handy list of topics like the previous poster
Most of the Young Children
activities strike me as most appropriate for preschool/K, and I think a 7-8 year old functioning at grade level would probably not be too into it. Most of the normal Family Math
activities strike me as most developmentally appropriate for a child who is a bit older - at least 6 or 7. However, I think the normal Family Math
would be easier to adapt downwards than it would be adapt the Young Children version up to meet the capabilities of a more advanced child. Plus, you'll get more mileage out of the normal version.
