Reviews - What do customers think about Mastering Essential Math Skills PROBLEM SOLVING (Mastering Essential Math Skills)?
good for additional practice Nov 19, 2009
I got this book for my 6th grade daughter who needed more drills before her math tests. It's great for practice. There are no explanations of the answers nor for the material covered. If you want practice questions in addition to what is covered in class, this is the book for you.
Hole-Free Math Skills Jun 16, 2009
In his customary succinct and painless way, Richard Fisher has written a series of skill specific math workbooks. Like an efficient patch kit, each book seals any holes that might exist in your student's math skills. I had the opportunity to look over these six, streamlined, no-fluff workbooks (just the way I like them). Fractions, Geometry, Percents and Decimals, Problem Solving, Whole Numbers and Integers, and Pre-algebra Concepts are individually and precisely targeted. Each subject is given a thorough yet simple treatment (a rare combination). First, by laying a firm foundation with the basics, building precept upon precept, and finally topping off the skills we have gained with final reviews to ensure hole-free mastery. With my limited understanding of math, I was able to easily comprehend the short lessons in the Helpful Hints section with examples. I could have used a little more explanation for the more complex concepts to nudge my brain to its grasping point; still, I was able to ascertain a concept by looking at the answer and figuring out how it was arrived at (I call it creative learning). I used Pre-Algebra Concepts with companion DVD for a review of Pre-Algebra and would unquestionably have used it as my son's primary text had I discovered this series sooner (the other books in this series do not come with a companion DVD). I recommend these books and will be using them for reinforcing any weak areas that crop up in my son's math comprehension.
Having Difficulty with Problem Solving? No Problem Apr 23, 2008
I reviewed all six of the new Mastering Essential Math Skills at the 2008 NCTM Math Conference. As a math consultant, I was impressed by all of them. This particular title teaches problem solving properly. Problem solving is a topic in math that is often neglected and for this reason, many students experience difficulty with it. The book begins with simple one-step problems and methodically works its way into multi-step problems. Tips, strategies, and examples make the individual lessons fun and easy to follow. Also, the book has an excellent review of whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. If your students follow the daily lessons dilegently, they WILL become proficient in the area of problem solving. Highly recommended.
