This supplemental workbook is designed to develop math literacy – the ability to read a story problem, determine the arithmetic operation needed, isolate important and useless information, and solve the problem. Different skills are involved, including choosing operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division), graphs, tables, money, fractions, and time. Each page of exercises revolves around a theme that students can relate to so that the extra drill and practice isn’t so overwhelming.
Grade 8 includes practice in: estimating and rounding, all operations, scientific notation, averages, metric conversion, problem solving, graphing, fractions, lowest common denominator, mixed numbers, operations on fractions, operations on decimals, distance, rate, time, ratios, decimals and percentages, increment tables, percent of increase and decrease, circle graphs, percentages, frequencies, algebra, Pythagorean Theorem, area and perimeter, and geometry (attributes and reflections). An answer key is included.
