Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Key to Percents emphasizes mental computation and estimation skills. Then students are taught to solve percent problems using equal fractions and decimal multiplication. Finally, percents are used to solve word problems in a variety of applications. Key to Percents assumes only knowledge of fraction and decimal computation. Book 1 covers percent concepts by moving from visual representations of percents to abstract problems.

Category Description for PROGRAMS - OTHER:

While offering some instruction, these programs include less teaching material or do not cover the full range of grade-level skills that the comprehensive programs offer.




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!

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 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."

This is a great curriculum with relatively easy to understand concepts.

I have the other books but am missing book 1

I like the way the author breaks down the process in small steps and has the student practice that step before moving on the to next step. I like the pictures used to explain. Black and white copy is sometimes less confusing that several colors and distractions.

I think the Keys to... books are simple, easy to understand, and highly practical
