Publisher Description:

Percent is part of the Straight Forward Math Series. Before beginning these percent skills, please make sure that certain pre-learned skills with fractions and decimals are firm. To this end, a simple Basic Skills Test for fractions and decimals is placed before the formal introduction of percent. Otherwise, this book is organized to methodically introduce percent concepts and skills. Concepts and skills are explained, modeled, and practiced. Periodic Review and Testing serve to measure skills taught.

Two other measurement tools-in addition to review and testing-are provided. A Percent Pre-Test will survey beginning percent skill levels. A Percent Post­Test will measure how well all percent skills presented in the book have been mastered.

Exercises which accompany skill sections can be completed in the book or on separate paper. Answers to exercises and all testing are also provided.

Category Description for 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.

Category Description for Straight Forward Math Series:

It can be difficult to find supplemental practice or alternative instruction for some higher-level math topics, especially trigonometry and calculus, but these clean, uncluttered and "straight-forward" workbooks do the job nicely. Each workbook is divided into chapters on broad topics (like matrices), which are broken down further into parts which focus on more specific topics (like the determinant for 2x2 matrices). Each part includes a short lesson on the concept, followed by example problems which are solved in a step-by-step manner with explanations. Example problems are followed by a set of exercises for the student to complete on their own. You will probably want to work out the problems on a separate sheet of paper, since little room is typically provided with the exercises and the books are not reproducible. An answer key is provided in the back of each book, which features answers to exercises and any reviews included (answers only, not detailed solutions). A cumulative review is included in every book except for Calculus AB Volumes 1 and 2 to ensure that the concepts have been mastered. For the price, these are excellent supplements to higher-level math topics where the textbook is not providing adequate explanation or practice. - Jess
