After the Confidence Building Unit

Where to go once your child has completed the Confidence Building Unit

Once your child has completed the Confidence Building Unit, we suggest moving into one of JUMP Math's grade-specific Assessment and Practice (AP) Books.  The AP Books cover the Common Core State Standards and provide excellent practice on their own, or they can serve as a support to what your child is learning in the classroom.

Our grade-specific materials are entitled AP Book 1, AP Book 2, etc. Our AP Books correspond with the Grade levels in the United States.  For example, AP Book 4 is for students in Grade 4. JUMP has strategically decided not to name our AP Books by grade, so as to preserve the self-confidence of those students working below grade level.

You should choose the AP Book you decide to purchase based on your child's current level of proficiency. In other words, if he or she is in Grade 6 but is operating at a Grade 3 level, then they should start with AP Book 3. We suggest purchasing one set of AP Books (Parts 1 & 2) at the appropriate grade level.

If your child is working at or a little behind grade level, we suggest you purchase the corresponding grade-level books, as they contain review material that goes back 1–2 years.  If your child is two or more years behind grade level, we recommend purchasing an AP Book that is 1–2 levels below their grade level.
