Math Mammoth Percent
Teaching percents can be challenging. It is different than fractions, and getting kids to grasp a somewhat abstract concept is difficult. Enter in Math Mammoth Percent. This ebook has activities that will help your child achieve a mastery of percent concepts.
Students will learn about percentages, calculating discounts and sales tax, percentages of a number, and percent of change. Circle graphs and other activities help reinforce the concepts. Math Mammoth percent is suitable for middle school students or kids in grades six through eight.
About Math Mammoth
Math Mammoth is a publisher of math worksheets and workbooks for grades one through 12. All of their books are available as downloads; some are available as printed books. The books can be ordered directly from Math Mammoth suppliers or you can check out the Home School Buyers Co-op for discounts to homeschool families.
The curriculum, worksheets, and workbooks are highly rated by homeschool families. It is a mastery based program which differs from a spiral based program. Students spend a full chapter on a concept and should show mastery before moving on to the next topic. In contrast a spiral based program bases new concepts upon previously learned concepts.
Parents can choose between a complete math curriculum like the blue or gold series, individual worksheets, or a series like States by the Numbers. Math Mammoth has about 300 free downloadable worksheets available.
If you are teaching percent concepts this year, give Math Mammoth Percent a try. It is free to download until August 18, 2013.
