Advanced Straight Forward Math
Does your student need to sharpen some specific skills? Maybe your math curriculum just does not have enough practice exercises or tests. These clean, uncluttered, and “straight-forward” workbooks that follow state and national standards will do the job nicely. Each topic-oriented workbook typically starts with an initial assessment of the child’s skill. Then, worksheets practice the applicable skills, periodic diagnostic tests monitor progress, and review and final exams identify improvement. This method provides a before, during, and after “picture” of skill development. The large number of exercises on each page provide little additional space, so you’ll probably want to work out problems on a separate paper. This multi-volume series addresses the most commonly problematic math skills at any student level. Use the Mastery (i.e. Tests, Fractions) books if you need a tool to understand how well your students grasp concepts and apply basic skills. Operations are specifically arranged to help you see where more attention is needed. Books in the Beginning levels practice introductory skills in any main subject (from operations of single digit adding, subtracting to introductory trigonometry and Pre-Calc). Once these skills are solidified, you’ll find an Advanced book for any skill (such as double-digit adding and dividing to Word Problems, Pre-Algebra, Pre-Geometry, and Algebra (these offer a book at multiple book levels) to Pre-Calculus. Higher levels have fewer assessments. A minor number of “reminder”-type information and some sample problems are offered—typically reserved for higher-level math skills. Includes an answers-only key in the back of each book. Reproducible for single family use. Approximately 35 pgs, pb.
