Math Tutor: Pre-Algebra Skills
Need a bit of extra practice with some of your math skills - let the Math Tutor help. This series provides instruction, practice, and assessment in correlation with state, national, and provincial standards. The books in this series are all formatted similarly which makes them easy to use for independent practice in specific skill areas. Each book is 78 pages, reproducible for classroom or family use, and arranged in a systematic way where skills build on previous skills. Each section begins with "Absorb" in which the concept or skill is introduced. Key terms are highlighted in this section for easy identification. The second part of each section is "Apply" in which the students practice the new skill or concept, and "Extra Practice" is exactly that - extra practice. 2 or 3 'section reviews' are found strategically placed in which students are quizzed over the skills covered to that point, and a 'final review' is found at the end of the book which covers all skills presented in the book. Step-by-step instruction provides students with a refresher on specific topics, extra practice along with regular curriculum, or just review before a big test.
