Page A Day Math is an incremental math book program for children between 3-9 years old that is both incremental and cumulative: this program introduces new topics while continually building and improving on existing math facts knowledge to improve fluency and to build a strong academic foundation for lifelong learning.
Each series focuses on a specific math operation and includes 10-13 books. Each book contains 14 days of practice so that your child is consistently finishing books and rewarded with a sense of achievement. The encouraging Page A Day Math Squad are present on every page, sharing jokes and cheering your child every step of the way!
Start with “Book 1” in each series, and have your child complete the front and back of each page. Correct their work when they finish, and then have your child fix their mistakes to cement accurate practice and consistent study habits.
Daily learning involves one page a day providing the perfect balance of incremental and cumulative practice. At the end of each page, there are completion stars for your child to color as the energetic Dog Math Squad, “Mo, Jo, Flo, Bo and Zo” cheer them on. The Dog Math Squad demonstrates the relevance of math in everyday life, which makes learning more effective and fun.
Parents can easily introduce the joy of math with books that are manageable, schedule-friendly, and promote independent learning and confidence. Children remain engaged and excited for what is to come as they turn the pages and discover an interesting dog fact or silly dog joke and a new certificate that awaits them at the end of each book.

Inside Each Page A Day Math Series
Every series is devoted to addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division, with math handwriting exercises in each series.
Inside every series, individual books are dedicated to a specific group of math facts. Daily practice introduces one new math fact as well as spending time on cumulative practice.
For example, let’s take one of the Addition series:
- Book 1 is dedicated to adding 1 to other numbers
- Book 2 is dedicated to adding 2 to other numbers
- Book 3 is dedicated to adding 3 to other numbers.
- This continues through the end of the series.
If you are teaching addition, you would have your child open 'Book 1', 'Day 1', where:
- They would learn how to add 0+1, practice this math fact and cumulative problems, finish and have their answers corrected, and then color in an achievement star.
- On 'Day 2', they would learn how to add 1+1, practice, correct, and fill in two achievement stars.
- On 'Day 3', they would learn how to add 2+1, complete cumulative practice, and then color in three completion stars.
- This continues until all addition facts that add one (+1) have been introduced and practiced. On 'Day 14', your child completes cumulative practice and gets a unique completion certificate.
The series for subtraction, multiplication, and division work the same way, with
10-13 books per series: one new math fact a day, lots of cumulative practice to aid in mastery, daily achievement stars, a completion certificate at the end of each book, and cute jokes and words of encouragement from the Page A Day Dog Math Squad.

Page A Day Math: 2 Ways to Start...
Which series should my child begin with?
#1: If your child is just starting to learn legible math handwriting, addition, subtraction, multiplication or division, you’ll want to start at the very beginning of the specific math operation series with the suitable age.
Each series has three-year age ranges, but please note that these age ranges are simply guides. Every child is at a unique place in their math journey.
Or, if you’re not sure which operation to start with:
#2: Take our math assessments to help pinpoint where your child is in their math journey. These math facts assessments will show you exactly what your child needs to practice to help boost their long-term academic performance, memory, problem-solving skills, and confidence!
If you’re unsure where your child should start, have them start at the beginning of a series in which they may already have exposure to but are not fluent. They will benefit from extra practice and this way you can ensure there are no gaps in their knowledge as you help them build a solid foundation.
Start your child with the Page A Day Math program early and ensure that they are mastering the fundamentals while discovering the joy of math.
Using the Page A Day Assessments
The Page A Day Math assessments help you discover precisely where your child is on their math journey, and how to help them continue building a solid foundation.
Each operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) has a dedicated 4-part assessment.
Have your child complete part one in the operation assessment, following the directions. When completed, circle the mistakes. If your child misses one or more problems or are not able to complete all the problems in the time allotted, you’ll want to start from “Book One” in that series. Ensure they have mastered the building blocks before they move on to the more challenging material.
If your child answers one or more equations on Part 2, 3, or 4 incorrectly, choose the book within the series they will start with by identifying the lowest number found in the problems missed. For example, if they answer 3x4, 4x5 incorrectly, you’ll want to start with “Book Three.” If you child missed 2x9, 5x6, 9x3, you’ll want to start with “Book Two” while using “Book One” as a review.
