Tall-Tale Math

These are the most creative and interesting story problems I've seen in a long time! Each workbook in this series is divided into three sections: Review, Skill-Builder, and Extra-Practice. Review sheets briefly cover important definitions and concepts and are followed by straight-forward questions which test comprehension. Skill-Builder and Extra-Practice sheets consist of story problems that are based on highly imaginative scenarios. For example, in the Mars City worksheet, you help a lost tourist find his way with directions from helpful Martians all the while applying what you know about parallel, perpendicular, and intersecting lines. Extra-Practice Sheets are exactly what they sound like but require higher level problem solving skills than Skill-Builder sheets. 64 pgs. ~ Anh
