Disclosure: I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.
This year has been tough on the math curriculum choices. My son did exceptionally well in a curriculum we used for 2 years, but this year the company decided not to update the 4th grade book and we were devastated and had to make a lot of changes. With these new changes came some new challenges, but we were fortunate to receive Math Essentials: Basic Math Skills Rescue Parts 1 and 2 to review.
Basic Math Skills Rescue Parts 1 and 2 are mastery math skills books, the goals are to help students master all 6 basic math skills in order to be successful in algebra. Each book is divided into 3 math skills area.
- Whole Numbers & Integers
- Decimals & Percents
- Problem Solving
Each books gives you free access to the online video library for grades 3 thru Algebra. The lessons in the books gives your students detail instruction and practice problems. Basic Math Skills Rescue Parts 1 and 2 allows student to do a few practice problems as a warm up and then they start to work the non practice problems. What I like about the books is that I can use them along side my son’s math curriculum as away to help better understand concepts or to give him more practice. Basic Math Skills Rescue Parts 1 and 2 goal is to give your student a strong understanding and mastery of critical foundations of algebra.
We have been using both books along side our math curriculum, we first started using the books to help him better understand integers. We recently have been using it to help him better master geometry. I wanted him to have more practice and so we worked on angels and geometric terms. I was very happy we had these books because he has light bulb moment and completely understood the concept and we were able to keep moving along in his math curriculum.
I really like Basic Math Skills Rescue Parts 1 and 2 books they really work on mastery and ensuring that your student will have a full foundation in basic math skills. You can work the books from front to back or you can use them to help you review skills.
