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.

Do you know when the 5th grade week by week lessons will be available on Amazon again?
I’m not sure about Amazon, but you can find the on the Scholastic teacher store. I think this link will take you there…
But if not, go to this link and use the search term: Wyborney
Oh hello Steve! Just getting to know your website and it’s awesome! Are there videos of you anywhere demonstrating your math skill work? I’d love to at least one! 🙂
Hi, Stacey. I don’t think so in the way you are describing, but I’m sure they could be filmed. Is there a particular concept, resource, or teaching practice you are thinking about?
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, Chris. I just checked with my editor at Scholastic about this. Here is a link: https://shop.scholastic.com/teachers-ecommerce/teacher/search-results.html?search=1&text=week%20by%20week%20review%20wyborney
Can you explain what “digital” means? Is this a resource primarily for all the zoom teaching we have been doing or does digital also mean using it with our in-class technology?
Hi, Stacey. When I wrote the books – several years ago, well before the pandemic – it was describing the use of digital resources such as PowerPoint. While it uses PowerPoint, the animations are very advanced (while also being as simple as possible to feature the math ideas they are detailing) and are not what you would typically see in a PowerPoint slide show. Now that we have entered a new world where zoom and google meet are used so much, if you can display a PowerPoint and show it over zoom that is probably the simplest way to describe it.
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?
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!
Steve, can you add them as digital resources to Teachers Pay Teachers? I would love to buy these
Hi, Nicoline. I’ll add a link to the Scholastic page. https://shop.scholastic.com/teachers-ecommerce/teacher/search-results.html?search=1&text=week%20by%20week%20review%20wyborney
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?
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?
Hi, Beckie. It doesn’t cover area model or partial quotients.
Nowadays most devices come without CD Rom capability. Do you have these PowerPoint presentations available online anywhere for a price?
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.
If you would put them in another format, or have them available online, I would buy them in heartbeat!
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.
Can you put these as a digital download please
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!
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.
Could I buy these as digital content? Like a download?
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?
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!
I would use levels 1 and 2 for kindergarten.
Good post, this’ll definitely help my tutoring.
Hi…r this books available in soft copy?
Yes. From this link, select a book, and then you can select a preferred format.
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!
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.
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!
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.
