Complete Math Workout

This 250 page marvel includes everything you would hope to find in a workbook - all nicely packaged. First of all there are lots of practice exercises with a great variety of formats, graphics, and types including word problems. Instruction is minimal but includes worked examples, "hints" on how to work specific types of problems, and step-by-step example problems in each group. The layout is eye-pleasing with just the right amount of color accents. Occasionally there are "just for fun" and "challenge" sections. Each section (roughly a quarter's work) has both a midway and a final review. Content correlates to expected grade level content with answers in the back (section could be removed.) Additionally, there is a Parent's Guide in the back. Student pages are reproducible by the classroom teacher but since the overall cost is minimal and the color is pleasing, I doubt many homeschoolers would want to go that route. While this book is designed to provide extra classroom or after-school work, content coverage is thorough and for the homeschool mom/teacher who is comfortable providing concept development and instruction, this workbook could easily supply all needed seatwork.
