Superstars Math III Problem Solving Program - Mathematics Superstars III encourages and enhances the positive aspects of students, parents, teachers and administrators working together. This program assumes that students, even young children, are capable of and interested in learning; that teachers want to help them learn to think for themselves; that administrators see their jobs as clearing the path so that quality education is delivered effectively in their schools; and that parents care about their child's learning and are willing to work with the school system toward that goal. Each of these four groups has a vital role to play in implementing Superstars III. The designer of this program has a long history of working with elementary children. The basic purpose of Superstars III is to provide the extra challenge that self-motivated students need in mathematics, and to do so in a structured, long-term program that does not impinge on the normal classroom routine or the time of the teacher.

Grid Paper PDFs Downloadable and very printable, I find these PDFs extremely useful. Graph Paper Quick Picks Now set to: 8 1/2 x 11 Paper. Ruled in Inches. Now set to: A4 Paper, Ruled in Millimeters. Custom Graph Papers Need more specific stuff? Tip number one! Though I do return the correct header for a PDF, sometimes Explorer gets confused when downloading... Tip number two! Some people may need to turn off the option in Adobe's Acrobat reader "shrink to fit" which may resize the grid slightly to fit your printer's printable area. Tip number three! If you want the hexes aligned with the other edge of the paper, just make your paper size "11 x 8.5" and print the result in landscape mode!
