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!

These books are great supplements when used in conjunction with a math curriculum. My son is in need of additional resources due to unexpected virtual at-home learning. I used these with my older children while homeschooling in the past and they worked great.

Having previously used this curriculum with my own kids I was happy to be reminded of it to use this year with my grandkids whom I now teach. They, and I, need a break from Saxon Math for now, and this is the ticket!

Our son is recently homeschooling and has some gaps in his math skills. I used these workbooks long ago and found them a simple and clear way to address one topic at a time.

My daughter feels she needs a little more instruction in a few areas before moving onto Algebra/High school work so w a consultants help we chose this for a summer program for her to work on to get her the additional instruction she needs.

I used this product before while teaching middle school. My daughter is special needs, and I believe the visual elements will help her make connections.

Keys to Algebra is a great product. Key to Fractions, Percents, and decimals came highly recommended by my administrator.
Julie A on Sep 10, 2019
We use key to fractions and my son loves the way the concepts are explained. He enjoys completing the workbooks and learning "another way" to do fractions.

I ordered these to review decimals with my 12 year old before we start Algebra. She needs reinforcement, and I had a great experience with the Keys to Algebra. We did that also to prepare for Algebra 1.

I am finishing Key to Fractions with my daughter who has a severe math learning disability. The step-by-step instructions have really helped her understand the concepts. I'm excited to try the decimals.
Jennifer C on Jan 2, 2019
Great to help struggling learners or fast learners. For struggling learners, this curriculum gives repetition and focus on single math concept of fractions, decimals or percentages without new things put into each days lesson. For fast learners it gives the basic concept and allows quick learning to advance to Algebra without spending a whole year in a math book.

Reinforcement to our Life of Fred Curriculum. We love Fred but sometimes concepts aren't explained thoroughly (according to my son). Used the Key to Fractions and my son found them helpful.

My child is struggling with mastery of fractions and decimals, have used these in the past with another student for review and was happy with it, hoping this will help again!

My daughters have done very well with the Key to Fractions series, and this is the next step recommended.

We have used Keys to Fractions with my eighth grader. She has enjoyed using the books and has gained confidence in areas where she was weak.
charles s on Apr 7, 2018
I've used these workbooks with several struggling students over the years and had great success. They remain my go-to choice for decimals and fractions, probably because they were the books that finally helped me understand them, way back when I was being homeschooled!
Sarah A on Mar 12, 2018
My son is struggling in math and I am hoping a more focused approach will help.

"These were recommended by a math tutor friend for my struggling with math son. She likes using these with her pupils as they are simple and confidence inspiring yet adequately presents the topics."

I have used the Key to series with great success with my children. The focused attention on each aspect of math seems to help greatly with retention.

ooking for an inexpensive way to review decimals
Yazbet Z on Nov 19, 2017
I chose these items because my son needs to complete Key to Fractions and Key to Decimals before he starts Key to Percents. These were recommended by a trusted homeschool mom. She said this math helped her son boost his confidence.
Roxann H on Oct 25, 2017
Teacher requested it for her grade 5 class. It was a hit so she asked me to buy the Decimals books next. One of our staff teachers told her about these resources.
Christianw R on Oct 19, 2017
Good series and I hope the decimal set is as good as the fraction set.

I have used the algebra and geometry keys and want to try the series with a younger student.

My daughter used the Key to Fractions books and they were amazing. It has a straight forward, old school way of teaching that made complete sense to her. I'm hoping for the same results with Key to Decimals
Lori M on Aug 17, 2017
We use Singapore for our youngest son, which has been a good fit for him. However, every now and then we need a little more instruction, and these Keys to books work very well. We can get a little clearer on a topic with Keys To..., then go back to Singapore, ready to move on.

Needed for reinforcement
Deanna P on Jun 27, 2017
My son needs extra help with math. Saxon jumped around too much for him and concepts would get jumbled in his mind. The slow and steady progression of one area of study in math at a time will help him build confidence and understand what he is doing. I do not want him to fall behind.
Kristen D on Jun 1, 2017
Needed review for Decimals only, and this fit the bill.
karen b on May 24, 2017
My son is struggling right now in these areas and I have used them in classes with students in the past and find they are easy to use.

My daughter is still struggling with decimals. I can tell she's not quite grasping the concept so we're trying something more concentrated in order to help her.
Jill M on Mar 13, 2017

Excellent, Easy To Use Instruction
I am a professional teacher and have used these booklets in my classroom to reteach concepts and for remedial tutoring. These booklets are easy to use, written clearly, and simply so that many students can do the booklets and check their work independently. Students love that they can write in the booklet and that the type is the real size of their own writing. Type font is clear, sharp and easy to read.
For a Homeschooling parent, these booklets are a treasure. They make the work easy with baby steps, plenty of practice and clear instructions. They are so inexpensive most families can afford them. Great product. Highly recommended.

Key to Decimals
Key to Decimals is just what I needed for some of my tutored students. It is great for a first introduction to the topic, and is perfect for another student who needs a remedial and developmental math program. Thank you! My students love Key to Decimals!
