Mastering Essential Math Skills

Hi Neighbors!

How are you all doing this week?  My son has been working on our latest curriculum up for review, Math Essentials.  The actual books we received are, Mastering Essential Math Skills, Book 2 ($33.95) along with the Problem Solving.  He did it more as a refresher course over the summer.  The Mastering Essential Math Skills is not just another math book, it is a system of learning.  Each day has five key parts.  Step one is the Review Exercises.  After they have spent enough time on reviewing, they move on to the Speed Drills.  Next is the Helpful Hints, where the student receives a tip or hint on how to solve the problems.  After reading the hint, the student moves on to the new material for the day.  This is followed up with one word problem.  To complete a daily section should take approx. 20 minutes.



The Mastering Essential math Skills Book Two is designed for Middle Grades and High School.  the Problem Solving workbook covers Graphs, Whole Numbers, Fractions, Decimals, and Percents.  The larger book, Mastering Essential Math Skills Book 2, covers: Whole Numbers, Fractions Decimals, Percent, Geometry, Integers, Charts and Graphs, and Word Problems.  also included is a Mastering Essentials math Skills DVD.

With the included DVD, your student who is motivated would be able to work through this book by themselves.  Now, having six children, 3 of whom have already graduated, I am aware that some students can do this, while others need that extra push.  And obviously you need to be available should they get stuck. The program is designed to prepare children for Algebra.  It is a one year course, although some will be able to complete it in less time.

This is a worthwhile program to prepare your student/s for Algebra.  I am having mine write answers in a separate notebook so I can use this for younger siblings.  So be sure to visit their website.

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon
