Well Trained Mind Press is publishing the Math with Confidence series because we believe that Kate Snow’s methods most closely align with the principles and methods described in The Well-Trained Mind, 4th Edition. You can read the series description on our website. Check out Cathy Duffy's review of the series to date.
How many levels will there be?

The publications are available first (and only) on our website as PDFs. When the printed books ship to distributors, paperbacks will be available from our store and from other vendors
Do you sell a PDF of the blackline masters (game boards, ten-frames, etc.)?
We do even better than that. We make these available on the product page for each level. Look on our website, near the Sample button for the grade-level you are using.
Do you have placement tests?
This article from our website will help you find the right level for your children. We also provide extended samples on the product page on the website; take a look at the sample to see which level is the best fit for your children.
What will I need to buy for each grade level?
You need both an Instructor Guide and a Student Workbook. These are/will be sold individually; Kindergarten Math With Confidence is sold as a bundle for ease of ordering.
What formats will be available?
The books are/will be available in paperback from our online store and from other vendors, and in PDF only from our online store. The Instructor Guide is available in ebook format from ebook vendors, but the workbook is not because the student has to write in the workbook. The PDF of the Student Workbooks comes with a file for printing in color and a gray-scale file in case you prefer to print in black and white.
How can I find out when I can buy the next grade level(s) of Math With Confidence?
