I was very disappointed with this book. They mention terms but the definition of the terms are in the pages ahead, so you have to look ahead for the definition then go back to where you were to know what they were talking about. If you don't know that the definitions are in the pages ahead, you're lost. Also, the numerical samples they give in the definition assumes you're a mind reader. They show a bunch of numbers and you have to infer how they relate to the definition. Good luck!
Good 6th grade practice Aug 28, 2008
Overall good overview and practice for the 6th grade. Would purchase this again, and will do so for the 7th grade. I found a few errors (not a huge deal) but still.
Good Math Book, Watch Out for Typos in Answer Keys! Aug 15, 2008
I used this math book to tutor my little brother who struggled in 6th grade math for 7th grade. We got though it fairly well, the book provides fairly good examples and builds a foundation for subsequent skills step by step.
My one complaint would be that whoever edited this book (especially the answer key) needs to pay more attention. I often quickly checked my brother's work with the key, and made him redo a problem one or two times only to find out he was right and the key was wrong. One page of word problems had 6 problems, the answer key had five answers and some of those were labled with the wrong problem number.
One or two of the world problems were unclear also.
I would just make sure you pay close attention to the problems when you correct them and make sure. By and large the problems in the key were right, but there was still more errors than necessary especially when this book was presumably edited by an adult where the book was designed for 11-13 year olds.
I just feel sorry for kids who are using this book at the orders of someone who would go by the key no matter what.
