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!

Category Description for PROGRAMS - OTHER:

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've used this curriculum for years. I love the way it scaffolds learning to help students understand each step before moving on to the next. The workbooks give lots of practice on skills.
Cindie W on Jan 5, 2020
Hands down the best resource for teaching fractions I have ever encountered. Intricate progression of concepts that keeps an appropriate pace to build knowledge and fluency.
Julie S on Oct 8, 2019
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 used Miquon for elementary math. This is recommended as a natural progression.

Was able to see inside the books and I don't think I've ever seen more simplified explanations. Lots of practice provided.

I have used these before with my older kids. They actually used them!
Carrie B on Jan 3, 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.

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!
Heather C on Jul 11, 2018
My son struggles with math and has taken longer than average to complete basic math. He seems to respond well to mastery based programs. I want to do topical studies to help prepare him for high school. These books seem highly recommended and have a simple layout. We enjoyed CLE math but it became too spirally for us. We enjoy being able to reach small goals and complete a workbook.
KARI P on Jul 9, 2018
Great reinforcement, not fancy, but makes the concepts come to life with lots of simple illustrations.

Priced right and there is no material comparable to Key Material. I have never had very math challenged students unable to learn fractions with Key . It is a quality product and one in which the students are excited to engage because they see themselves learning!! In addition, the spacing, typing, print size, and number of problems on each page support ease in acquiring new concepts.
Mari Lou H on Mar 21, 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
I know this is a great resource for students who need math concepts introduced a little more slowly to build their confidence and ability.

are the pages reproducible?
A shopper on Oct 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These are consumable worktexts. The copyright does not allow for copying.
Is this and the other Key To books ( like percentages, decimals, measurements, etc.) common core?
User on Mar 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, they are not aligned to CC. In fact, their publication date was 1980, decades before CC.

The answer key is not detailed enough
The answer key has very small print and has the answers with no explanation. So, if you want more than just the answers, this might not be the book for you.

perfect for getting over the hurdle
We hit a stumbling block with our main curriculum when we came to the fractions section in 7th grade Teaching Textbooks. I used these to refresh myself while I taught my child with them. Easy explanations! Now we can return to our regular curriculum since we finished the booklets in just a few weeks. We went a little faster in them, but we needed it for a supplement only to hit a few "key" areas that needed reinforcing. We were able to skip the 1st book since my child knew all of it from previous math lessons in our regular curriculum.

Breakthrough with this Key set..
One of my tutoring students was struggling horribly with fractions and had many gaps. I purchased the Key to Fractions set and started her at the very beginning. It is nothing less than amazing how well she has caught on and how thorough her understanding is! I highly recommend the "Key to" series!

Keys to Fractions
This is the best supplementary curriculum for fractions, decimals and measurment. Many math curriculums do not give enough practice and low level instruction. I use this every year to give my students the base knowledge.

First I would like to say that I LOVE the Key to__ series We used the Key to Fractions the past school year for my 12 year old son He always did ok in math but he needed a little help on fractions For a mom that is not too great in math I liked that the books were easy to understand He just read the directions and went about his work needing little help from me There is no preparation to use the books Just open the workbook read the short directions and begin! I ordered the complete set and I did enjoy having the answer booklet for fast checking I have the Key to Percents we will start our year off with and then I plan on using the Key to Algebra as soon as we complete the percent booklets I would highly recommend the Key to books!
