By Visibly Pam TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 21, 2005
Format: Paperback
The Previous `Negative' Reviewer was right. This book consists of worksheets without any coherent 'introduction', progress and testing format. You won't find anything spelled out and explained, though there are answers in the back.

In addition, this DK book (and generally we love their stuff) DOES NOT correspond to what every Fifth Grade class is doing these days. However, I don't really see this as a complete drawback, as one can look at the table of contents and make a decision based on that as to whether it is `right' for your child.

The biggest drawback, as I see it, is that you can basically only use this book as a supplement to another text. Or, in other words, It would make a bad homeschooling text.

Three Stars. Not a good homeschooling-type type book because you are left on your own to explain things. An okay book if you are looking for additional problems for your child to work.

The last book in the Math Made Easy series of workbooks. Each workbook matches the math curriculum so your child will reach their full potential on the all-important standardized tests. In fact, these books have been compiled and tested by a team of math experts to increase your child's confidence, enjoyment and success.

You will find practice pages for all the major topics covered in Grade 5. There is a definite emphasis on addition and subtraction of fractions and decimals. There is a review of Grade 4 topics and plenty of Times Tables practice. There is also a Progress Chart with gold stars to record achievement.

At the back of the book the "Answer Section with Parents' Notes" provides answers to all the activities in the book. The notes for each page also help to explain common problems and solutions are given to ensure that your child understands how and why they made errors.

Contents:

Multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000
The simplest form of fractions
Changing improper fractions to mixed numbers
Rounding decimals
Decimal addition and subtraction
Converting units of measure
Speed Problems
Interpreting circle graphs
Naming Quadrilaterals
Converting Fractions to Decimals
Simple use of parentheses
Multiplying Fractions
Finding the Greatest Common Factor
Identifying Patterns
Multiplying by two-digit numbers

The successful way to improve your child's understanding of math.

This book is full of great additional practice related to our state math standards. For children who are struggling with Everyday Math and need more paractice in multiple formats, this series is "the cat's meow." Children will love the star reinforcement stickers and the progress chart which help them to track their skills. Parents and teachers will love the answer key in the rear where you can not only check work but make a record of specific errors on minatures of the actual worksheets to guide later review and practice once the worksheets have been completed or sent home. These books are a great supplemental tool. I have actually purchased several different levels and find them all well thought out and highly useful for grade appropriate math skills remediation.

Yes, I am astonished at and delighted by the topics and techniques shown in this book. I love this book; I wish I had written it.

You'll want to read Rebecca's list of topics and her compliments. She's right. Pam Tee criticizes the book for its sparse explanations. She is correct that this book supplements a textbook and is not a "stand-alone" book. As such, it is top-notch. Below I will offer a couple of changes for your consideration. It is not nearly as cluttered as most textbooks which feature laborious explanations, which is a virtue.

This book will prepare your child to succeed in Algebra One with only a little further supplementation. Don't be so concerned with the "state tests;" help your child lay a solid computation foundation to score high on the SAT's. The authors do not offer any such guarantee, but 5th grade is the right age to start, with one page a day of this book at home.

When your book arrives, spend 30 minutes reading the answer pages in the back. You will see 8 pages at once, and will get an overview which will help you see how one lesson leads to the next. You will also find some helpful hints for parents, which helps to overcome Pam Tee's objections. Here follow my own hints.

Page 3 has a wonderful introduction to equvalent fractions.

Pages 28 and 29 are super. These are good pages to hand your child a calculator and show how to turn a fraction into a decimal. Do NOT write the decimal, but do write the percent near each fraction. Older students often do not see that a fraction, a decimal, and a percent are all identical; you just use the most convenient form for the job at hand.

I bought this book for my 5th grader to supplement his daily homework and was extremely disappointed with this book. True to the books title, most of the content is not much challenging for a 5th grader. It took 2 hours for my son to complete more than 40 pages of worksheets, extremely easy simple math and division problems. I would not recommend this book for an average or above average student.
