Reviews - What do customers think about Spectrum Math: Grade 8 (Spectrum)?
Almost there Jul 9, 2009
I bought this book for a young man that I tutor. He needed help getting up to speed when entering the eighth grade, I bought the eighth grade book because he goes to a traditional school that advances faster than most. It was pretty helpful and did it's job. I wouldn't recommend doing everything in every part. Some of the chapters are really long. I try and do two chapters a week. some of the chapters get to long and I can only do one a week. I did not like the chapter on the Metric System, the chart they had at the top was confusing, so I had to print my own chart. If your looking for something to catch up or to try and get ahead in math I would certainly recommend this product. (Just a FYI the Science was not that good)

My son has really enjoyed this workbook. We are using it as a supplement to his Lifepac material. He likes the mix.
Spectrum Math 8th Oct 17, 2007
The new Spectrum Math books are an improvement over the older editions. They are more colorful and the print to the answer keys are larger. These workbooks give plenty of math problems for practice and include word problems as well. I also like the fact that they can actually be completed in less than a year, giving the child a sense of accomplishment.
A great math book for homeschoolers et al! Apr 11, 2006
See my review for Spectrum Math Grade 7....
After quickly plowing through the 7th grade book, my 12-yr old has been learning the majority of his math via Spectrum Grade 8. Problems, problems, & more problems is the key to this book's effectiveness.
Spectrum Gr 8 steps up the complexity of the math problems in such a way that we're spending a lot more time with this book than with Spectrum 7. The 7th grade book was an *essential* stepping stone, and we used it from cover to cover, but we didn't bother doing all of the practice problems.
With the Grade 8 book, a good tactic seems to be to cover all the material once (using half or a third of the math problems provided in each section), & then moving back through the book a second time (or a third, or a fourth!), reinforcing lessons learned with the neverending supply of practice problems.
This repetition, spaced out over time (as opposed to covering a topic thoroughly but never revisiting it), is probably the best way to develop math skills that last a lifetime. Particularly if your kid isn't an overly exuberant math lover.
Love these math books!
Excellent Practice Book Oct 2, 2005
If you are looking for a math book filled with practice problems, then this is the book for you. I am a private tutor and I am currently using this book with one of my students. This book covers many topics (for 8th grade). After each chapter there are tests, which is a good thing. Well, overall this a good practice book for 8th graders. Also, seventh graders can give it a try as well. [...]
