Publisher Description:

Key to Decimals begins with basic concepts and operations on decimals. Then it covers real-world uses of decimals in pricing, sports, metrics, calculators, and science. Visual models illustrate new concepts, and simple, easy-to-follow instructions let students work on their own or in small groups as they master essential math skills.

Category Description for Key To Math (Gr. 4-12):

The Key To... series is a very self-instructional, unintimidating, programmed learning series. Covering seven basic topics, students can work through these horizontally or vertically. They are ideal for "homework" or a more topical approach to the subject. Presentation is done in a simple, friendly manner, incrementally, and with examples to follow as needed. Workbooks are thin and consumable. Answer keys are recommended. Order by the book or in sets.

We like this series because it encourages children to tackle these subject areas in as much depth as they can, rather than working strictly within the confines of an age-graded math program. Starting in 4th or 5th grade, I purchased a complete set of student workbooks for each child. Book 1 in each topic was put on the school book shelf. When Key to... was assigned, my children were free to work on whatever topic they chose, and they worked as much as they wanted. As soon as Book 1 in any subject was completed, it was replaced by Book 2. My oldest daughter sometimes got so involved that she just kept going!

Math is broke down to focus on one part of math at a time as not to overwhelm my child who's worst subject is math.

I have used this with my older children and am ordering more for my youngest children. They have loved the progression of skills and the ability to focus on one topic in math at a time.

I've heard good things about it and my son needs some help with decimals to be successful in Algebra. We came across the other books through donation.

""I have Fractions book 1,2,4, Decimals 3 & 4 and Meaasurements 1-4 but do not have Percents 1,2, & 3. I have all to Answer Keys for each.""

I have used these books in the past for students that prefer a self paced math book. They are great books!

Key to series reliably works! And it's well-organized, includes all the basics of math, and it's self-guided, for the most part. As a home-school mom, what more could I ask for? As long as it works for my particular kid.... (kumon works for most of the others

How long does it take to complete each workbook? Is the entire Keys to Decimals set meant to be a years curriculum?
A shopper on Jan 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I use Key to Decimals as a supplement 5th grade math curriculum because I love the sequential approach they use. (I use Key to Fractions to supplement 4th grade & Percents for 6th.).Each of the. 4 Workbooks have 45 pages . Book 1 pages are quite simple and students could easily complete 4 or 5 pages a day. Some of the dividing in book 3 takes longer so maybe 2 or 3 pages a day. So if you were just using this curriculum I would say it could be finished in about 2 months. And for the slower, no more than 3 months.

I love the Key to program I had a math student that was struggling so much in algebra that I ended up making him do the decimals fractions and percents books in this program as well as the first book of the algebra program While he still struggles in math he is way better now than he was and we have finally started our algebra program back up again I love how these books take you step by step Most math books show you how to work a whole problem all at one time but not this one It has you work things little by little It really is amazing how a student who was once petrified when confronted with fractions decimals and percents can work them with confidence now Also the one book we worked from the algebra series really helped his skills in working with negatives and positives I highly recommend them
