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 needed a step by step breakdown of understanding percents in order to help my son who continues to struggles with the concept of part-part in fractions, decimals, and percents.

We have the Decimals set and really like it as a supplement for my 5th grader, so we're getting the Fractions set, too.

"Key" curriculum was recommended to us by our math tutor who also teaches at a four year university.

I have used Key to Fractions, Decimals, and Percents with great success with my older kids when they were stuck on these concepts. The one for whom I am buying these books now uses Singapore which, while I love their approach, leaves something to be desired when it comes to introducing new concepts. Key to books introduce slowly and methodically enough for kids to grasp. They also show the kids worked examples.

I think Key to Fractions is the absolute best way to teach fractions! I've been using this resource for more than 20 years, and it's still my favorite.
Lorraine K on Feb 20, 2020
This came highly recommended as a great addition to re-enforce concepts and as extra practice.
Denise D on Jun 14, 2019
They are great for summer refreshers and reinforcement for concepts learned during the year.

Time for kid #4! Worked great with #1-3.

Easy to understand, methodical and simple instruction.
Siri B on Feb 5, 2019
I used these with one of my other daughters and she like them better than any other math. Hoping that my next daughter will feel the same!

I have found this series to be the best at breaking down fraction instruction into manageable chunks. These workbooks also provide plenty of practice. The black and white pages are free from distractions.

This is for review for an older student. We used this series once before with good success.
Susan D on Sep 12, 2018
Great way to solidify fractions for your kids! I have used these for my two oldest, and I am now ordering it for my third child. LOVE!
Caron F on Sep 8, 2018
I like the way Key To Fractions approaches the fraction concepts. It's very logical.

Easy to follow for the parent homeschooling child
Wade B on Jun 23, 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
We've used the Key to books in the past, and they are a great way to brush up on content.
Beate B on Aug 2, 2017
I have used this series with all four of my older children and with good results.

Fractions are so important to know for continuing onto Algebra. These Key To workbooks provide a thorough, non intimidating practice approach to reviewing fraction concepts. I will be using these books with my fifth grader as a break from our regular math curriculum.

Our math tutor suggested this set of workbooks

Purchasing for a second child. This whole series has been wonderful for extra practice, and/or as a stand-alone curriculum. It does not have many word problems, though.

Excellent practice for kids prior to embarking on algebra
Victoria T on Aug 12, 2016
I have used this series with three previous children, and while not the most exciting lessons in the world, they are definitely very clear, and can be completed relatively quickly. The kids can tackle a page or two at a time and not feel overwhelmed (as opposed to, say, a book with thirty problems.) I use this primarily as a supplement or for review.
Victoria P on Aug 9, 2016
Used it successfully with an other child.

I have used this with all my children, and they all have a very clear grasp on fractions and the logic behind them.

We love this program - it is clear and easy to understand! The concepts are broken up into little booklets - making it less intimidating for kids struggling in math - they don't feel so overwhelmed!

This is a great product to introduce fractions I gave my daughter the books and she was able to work through the books with limited helpI believe for the price the books are a great valueMy daughter has really learned the skills introduced in these books The only concern that I have is that she needs additional practice to really master the skills So I use some software I have to give additional problems to practice her newly learned skillsMy daughter loves the series because she likes the way it focuses on one topic
