Back Fence Publishing was established in 2005 with a mission to bring to all parents and teachers a truly important and revolutionary book - Eliminating Careless Error.   It is a long overdue book.   Eliminating Careless Error is the only book available which successfully deals with the number-one problem in grade school education - careless error in arithmetic.  The book shows a basic math skill systemically omitted for over 400 years in general grade school education.   This skill is called 'Certainty of Answers'.   

Eliminating Careless Error is a totally self-contained Parent/Teacher’s manual and children’s workbook.  The lessons and worksheets are easy to follow.  The parent teaches in small, easy, self-explanatory lessons, only as they apply to what the child is actually learning at the time in school.  If a 2nd grader is learning only addition, you only use that section of the book.  You wait until they are doing subtraction in school to teach that section.  The material in Eliminating Careless Error is compatible with all math curricula and covers all 4 operations of arithmetic; Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division.

Children learning the material think it is a magic trick and are genuinely delighted to see how easy it is to be sure of their answers.  It is a fast, pain-free - even fun, learning experience.  Parents can show, in a few minutes, how the material is incorporated to immediately improve children's homework.  Uniquely, all of the exercises in the book tell children ‘Do not redo the problem’.  Children are shown that completely redoing problems is inaccurate drudge work, a waste of time and has no place in proper arithmetic.  Parents will find this book to be a breath of fresh air and very enlightening about their own unpleasant past experiences with math. 

 

HERE'S AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT ANY CHILD SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO:
Any 4th grader should be able to simply look at the problem below and tell you - without using a calculator or redoing the problem -  if it is right or wrong.  The size of the problem has no effect in accomplishing this simple exercise.
356 x 4889 = 1,740,584
 
As you can see,  you didn't learn how to do this in school, although you should have been taught it.  I think you will agree, if all children knew how to be certain of answers, they would never turn in wrong answers on homework or tests!  This is a MAJOR application of math and it is missing from curricula.  It is not simply some minimally justified math trick .  It needs to be taught to children.
