I struggle teaching math. So when I noticed that Lydia is struggling in areas of math, I was excited to get an opportunity to review Mastering Essential Math Skills Book 2 Middle Grades/High School from Math Essentials. I now have a way to help fill in the gaps so that she doesn't continue to fall behind in her math skills.
Mastering Essential Math Skills Book 2 Middle Grades/High School is the second book in a series from Math Essentials that was created to help students master math skills that they need to continue into the even tougher math subjects. In Book 2, students will work on working with whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percents, geometry, integers, charts & graphs, and also word problems. All of these basic skills are needed to keep going into advanced high school and even college math. If a student is unprepared in these areas, it can really hurt their chances of successfully completing math at those upper levels.
Mastering Essential Math Skills Book 2 Middle Grades/High School is set up to provide the student with a video lesson and then there are review exercises to go along with the video. Each pages or section of pages usually last most students around 20 minutes a day. So it is not overwhelming and this encourages a student's success.
The videos are short and usually last just a few minutes, usually under 20 minutes.
I really like that the videos can be watched repeatedly, if a student needs it. This really helped Lydia. No matter how many times I show her steps, she being a teenager, knows more than me. So using the videos to show her the steps helped her see what she needed to be doing.
Lydia actually has been using Mastering Essential Math Skills Book 2 Middle Grades/High School material alongside a tutor. She covers the material and they can use the videos to get over whatever struggles that Lydia is having.
Mastering Essential Math Skills Book 2 Middle Grades/High School is really a great book to use alongside a student's math curriculum to give them extra help. Or even over a summer break/school break to help your student master skills that they really need to advance in life. Mastering Essential Math Skills Book 2 Middle Grades/High School can be used by families no matter what schooling style that they use. I have been very grateful to be introduced to this material and look forward to how Lydia keeps advancing in her mastery of math.
