Mastering Essential Math Skills Ultimate Math Survival Guides (Gr. 4-8)
For students who need more practice and review, these books cover all the basics before moving on to algebra. Using the same simple to understand format found in the Mastering Essential Math Skills Series, students will gain confidence as they master math essentials. Follow the five steps outlined in the front of each book for math success - Step 1: complete the review exercise and show your work; Step 2: introduce the new material using "Helpful Hints"; Step 3: work the two sample problems together (student & parent/teacher), then the student works independently; Step 4: go through the "Problem Solving" section and explain key words and strategies, then let the student solve the problem; Step 5: correct the work using solutions in the back of each book.
