I love the line on the front cover: â€œMath is often taught as all scales and no music. This book contains the music!â€ Our math study is indeed lacking if we donâ€™t see how it can be used to do wonderful things. The bookâ€™s first premise is that we learn through being challenged. Students, secondly, should be presented with these challenges in ways that intriguingly connect math and the real world. Each chapter introduces concepts and discusses the real world situation using a charming animal companion and an Einsteinlike character drawn in black and white cartoons. The formula and key processes they discuss are highlighted on a drawn chalkboard. The 21 chapters each pull from a wide variety of topics: astronomy, problem solving, algebra, probability, ratios, perimeter and circumference, area, volume, analogies, speed, bases and more. First in each chapter come problem sets. You can easily select the difficulty of problems to specifically challenge your student. All material covers four different levels of difficulty: easy, somewhat challenging, challenging and very challenging. Each problem set has â€œwarm upâ€ exercises with one problem for each of the four different levels. After a few pages of problem sets come extended sets of questions at each levela good handful (5 or so) of questions per level. Answers are provided in full and comprise 125 pages of the book. Pages are reproducible for classroom use. 398 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

Â Art of Problem Solving is known for their math series catering to gifted students â€“ Beast Academy at the middle grades and Art of Problem Solving for higher levels. These courses are for those students who need additional challenges not provided in regular math courses. Competition Math for Middle School is by the same publisher and is intended for gifted math students, math coaches, and parents or teachers in search of material to challenge accelerated students. The bookâ€™s content will really make your math gears turn! Youâ€™ll find great, meaty problems in the areas of algebra, counting, probability, number theory, and geometry, along with answer keys and complete solutions and instructions that include examples and the reasoning required.Â
Â This book assumes that students using this book are competent in prealgebra concepts. This is definitely a book for the mathminded and can be used for students who are interested in math competitions, such as MathCounts and AMC, or those who just want to add more indepth thinking problems to their math curriculum. 370 pp, p/b. ~ DonnaÂ Â

You've made it to high school and math is still a challenge for you. A little review and practice is all you need for the math basics to click, and now you're ready to move on to the next math level. The Practice makes Perfect: Basic Math offers over 500 exercises in the areas of number sense, calculation, algebraic reasoning, geometric relationships, and statistical thinking. Basic math skills are imperative for passing the GED and/or preparing for community college, and this book reviews the basics – multiplication, division, negative numbers, square roots, fractions, and more. 184 pages of clear explanations, examples, and practice provide help for the struggling student and prep for standardized testing. The book is not reproducible and the answer key is found at the back. pb. ~ Donna

This book has some overlapping content with EZ Arithmetic. There's a short review of the four basic operations in chapter one, but then it jumps right into fractions, decimals, percents, beginning algebra, factoring, equations, geometry, tables and graphs, word problems, and probability and statistics. Explanations of concepts and terminology are clear and to the point. Algebraic processes, such as graphing a linear equation or solving a quadratic equation, are systematically broken down and presented as stepbystep procedures. Steps in worked examples are correspondingly numbered for clarity. Each chapter includes a pretest, a posttest, and numerous practice sets. The answer key also provides solutions for more difficult practice problems. 230 pgs. ~ Anh

This software, now packaged in a USB flash drive format,Â contains a year's worth of lessons in consumer mathematics. The SwitchedOn Schoolhouse program creates an interactive learning environment by combining written instruction with video clips, audio clips, animation, and vocabulary games (that's right, even in math it's important to learn the appropriate vocabulary). Like other SwitchedOn Schoolhouse subjects, this computerbased course is NOT intended for selfstudy. Personal instruction is required. This software is not intended to replace the teacher, but to free up some of the teacher's time by taking care of administrative tasks such as grading and writing lesson plans.
This course consists of the following ten units: basic math review, personal finance, statistics, taxes & insurance, banking & credit goods, purchase & sale of goods, leisure & travel & retirement, jobrelated services, and consumer math review. Each unit contains approx. twenty lessons, two to five quizzes, and one unit test. Once the teacher sets up the student calendar, lesson plans are automatically generated by evenly spreading the course work over the total number of school days. Up to five students can be registered on this software, and access for each student is password protected.
One feature I really enjoyed using was the message posting system. Before each new lesson, the teacher can skim the material and post hints or explanations to potentially confusing sections. During the lesson, the student can read these messages and post his or her own comments and questions (which is really useful if the teacher is not onhand to answer questions when the lesson is actually completed). The more familiar the teacher is with the course content, the easier it will be to answer student questions, especially since answer keys, but not solutions, are provided. I would consider this elective a high school level course. System requirements: Windows 7/ Windows 8 & 8.1 / Windows 10; printer recommended.  Anh
