Animated Math Books

My latest book, Long Division Made Easy, was just released!  You'll see that I have leveraged the power of animation to illustrate the concept of division.  As the book unfolds, animated visual models begin to connect to multiple ways of representing division.  Then with the concepts of division in place, the book details the process of long division, all embedded within the conceptual understanding of division.

This ebook includes 10 engaging, ready-to-use animated PowerPoint lessons with leveled practice pages, and it is available through Scholastic Teacher Express.

    Hi Steve and Scholastic, is there anyway to get the series Week-by-Week Math Review for the Digital Classroom (grades 1-6)??? I realize it was on CD but many computers have CD portable connectors. Given the Pandemic, this would be an excellent resource (which I know has been said before). Surely the sales you would make would make it worth someone taking it on (Scholastic, up for the challenge?). We would certainly purchase it for all our schools.

    Hi Steve. I have been following your work for a few years now and really appreciate all the free resources you have provided to teachers. They are amazing and so engaging for students. For that, I thank you! I have been trying to purchase a few of the Interactive board resources above from Scholastic (which won’t allow me to put in my Canadian address) and on Amazon (both Canadian and American) they don’t seem to be available. Is there another way that I could purchase the items I would like?

    • Steve Wyborney on November 23, 2020 at 11:05 am

      Hi, Jodi. Unfortunately, I don’t thin I can find a way around that. The books are going out of print, in part because the lessons come on CDs and there are fewer and fewer computers with drives to read them.

        You answered my question before I could ask – it is unfortunate that these resources aren’t available for sale on Teachers Pay Teachers or something similar. They look like they would be great for math during COVID. Thank you for all of the free resources on your site!

      • Nicoline Morrell on March 24, 2021 at 12:37 pm

        Steve, can you add them as digital resources to Teachers Pay Teachers? I would love to buy these

    I am interested in purchasing your Long Division ebook, but would like to preview at least one page if possible. Do you have a link to a sample page or materials related to long division?

    • Steve Wyborney on October 25, 2019 at 6:41 am

      Hi, Laveena. I just checked the Scholastic page and I don’t see a preview on there. I’ll check with my editor to see if there is something we can do.

        Hi Steve. Does the Long Division book start with 4.NBT.6 strategies like area model and partial quotients and then connects to the standard algorithm? Or does this book only cover the Gr. 5 CCSS standard algorithm of long division?

        • Steve Wyborney on February 22, 2021 at 7:14 am

          Hi, Beckie. It doesn’t cover area model or partial quotients.

  4. Lana Baroudi on September 15, 2019 at 10:43 pm

    Nowadays most devices come without CD Rom capability. Do you have these PowerPoint presentations available online anywhere for a price?

    • Steve Wyborney on September 24, 2019 at 9:05 pm

      Hi, Lana. Yes, it’s amazing how much has changed since I wrote the books. I don’t have them in another format right now.

      • Lana Baroudi on October 24, 2019 at 7:31 pm

        If you would put them in another format, or have them available online, I would buy them in heartbeat!

        • Steve Wyborney on October 25, 2019 at 6:38 am

          Thanks, Lana. I don’t know that Scholastic has them in another format. I can check with my editor to see if there are going to be any other formats.

          • Lori Garza on January 3, 2021 at 12:00 pm

            Can you put these as a digital download please



          • Steve Wyborney on January 4, 2021 at 8:14 pm

            Hi, Lori. I don’t think I can set it up that way since Scholastic is the one publishing those books.

    I would like to subscribe to your email list. Your work is fantastic!

    • Steve Wyborney on September 13, 2019 at 6:25 am

      Thanks, Claire! The subscription box is on the left side. You need to scroll down just a bit to find it. If you click here and scroll down you’ll come to it.

  6. Belinda on February 24, 2018 at 9:30 pm

    Could I buy these as digital content? Like a download?

  7. Mrs R on February 11, 2018 at 9:13 am

    I teach kindergarten so maybe I have a five-year-old brain now, but I don’t get how to use the powerpoint slides to create the interactive activity?

    • stevewyborney@gmail.com on February 12, 2018 at 6:22 am

      Hi. Have you gone to the Slide Show tab and then clicked on the view show from beginning option? Let me know if that answers your question. Alternatively, if it’s one of the lessons from the animated math books they will likely play immediately when you click on the PPS file on the disk. Either way, let me know!

  8. Matt on September 13, 2017 at 7:00 pm

    Kindergarten?

    • stevewyborney@gmail.com on September 30, 2017 at 8:25 pm

      I would use levels 1 and 2 for kindergarten.

  9. Jon on January 1, 2016 at 1:36 pm

    Good post, this’ll definitely help my tutoring.

  10. regina on April 3, 2015 at 8:34 am

    Hi…r this books available in soft copy?

    • stevewyborney@gmail.com on April 3, 2015 at 10:14 pm

      Yes. From this link, select a book, and then you can select a preferred format.
      Thanks!

    Hi Steve – one more post from me, and one more question… Does the book 25 Common Core Math Lessons for the Interactive Whiteboard require a Smartboard? I have PowerPoint on my teacher computer and a projector to show my computer screen. Is that enough? Can I still use the lessons or does my white board actually have to be “interactive?” Thanks!

    • stevewyborney@gmail.com on March 8, 2015 at 5:27 pm

      The 25 Common Core Math Lessons for the Interactive Whiteboard series does not require an interactive whiteboard. You have everything you need. The requirements to use the animated lessons are a computer with PowerPoint, and a projector (if you are displaying for the whole class), which is how I envisioned it being used. There is no need to have an interactive whiteboard.

  12. Stephanie Knapp on March 8, 2015 at 12:08 am

    Can’t wait for the week-by-week math review to come out… I can’t get an advance copy of the third grade book, can I? 🙂 What a great resource!

    • stevewyborney@gmail.com on March 8, 2015 at 5:25 pm

      Hi, Stephanie! No, I don’t have any advanced copies, but I can let you know as soon as they are available. I am really excited about them. I think it is going to be an excellent series.
