Math Mammoth Percent By Maria Miller
Paperback: $10.60
Ships in 3-5 business days
Math Mammoth Percent teaches students the concept of percent, percentage of a number, discounts, sales tax, percent of change, circle graphs, and percent of comparison. It is suitable for 6th-8th... More > grade. The concept of percent builds on a student's understanding of fractions and decimals. Specifically, students should already be very familiar with the idea of finding a fractional part of a whole. One lesson concentrates a on tenth of a percent. Thus far, all the material has been with whole percents. From this lesson on, we will also use tenth of a percent (such as 13.4%). We compare ratios, fractions, and percent. Students study how to make a circle graph. Last is percent of change dealing with decreases and increases in quantities (such as prices). We also study how to find the percent of change when the original and new amount are known.< Less
Math Mammoth Geometry 3 By Maria Miller
Paperback: $9.30
Ships in 3-5 business days
Math Mammoth Geometry 3 can be used after the student has finished Math Mammoth Geometry 1, and is suitable for grades 5-7. This book does not require the students to calculate area or volume, and... More > that is why it is not necessary to study Math Mammoth Geometry 2 (which deals with those topics in depth) before this book. We start out with basic angle relationships, such as adjacent angles (angles along a line), vertical angles, and corresponding angles (the last only briefly). The lesson Angles in Polygons is a sequel to studying angles in a triangle. The next set of lessons deals with congruent and similar figures. The last section of this book teaches some basic compass-and-ruler constructions. Note: At this time (2014), this book is in "beta" stage. It will be revised with more lessons (such as about The Pythagorean Theorem) probably in early 2015.< Less

Math Mammoth Rational Numbers By Maria Miller
Paperback: $8.50
Ships in 3-5 business days
In Math Mammoth Rational Numbers we study rational numbers, which are numbers that can be written as a ratio of two integers. All fractions and whole numbers are rational numbers, and so are...

Our focus in this book is to extend that knowledge to negative fractions and negative decimals. We also study, scientific notation, the instructional portion of the book concludes with two lessons on solving simple equations that involve fractions and decimals.< Less
Math Mammoth Expressions and Equations By Maria Miller
Paperback: $12.05
Ships in 3-5 business days
Math Mammoth Expressions & Equations is a worktext covering the order of operations, equations, expressions, and simplifying expressions in several different ways in 6th-7th grade level. The... More > main principles are explained and practiced both with visual models and in abstract form, and the lessons contain varying practice problems that approach the concepts from various angles. We also touch on inequalities and graphing on a very introductory level. In order to make the learning of these concepts easier, the expressions and equations in this book do not involve negative numbers (as they typically do when studied in pre-algebra and algebra). We start out by learning some basic vocabulary used to describe mathematical expressions verbally. Next, we study the order of operations. Then, we get into studying expressions in definite terms: students encounter the exact definition of an expression, a variable, and a formula, and practice writing expressions in many different ways.< Less
Math Mammoth Integers By Maria Miller

The first topic in the book is... More > integers themselves, presented on a number line (negative and positive numbers) and tied in with temperature. Next we move on to modeling additions and subtractions as movements on a number line. Another model used in the book for addition is that of counters or chips. One lesson explains the shortcut for subtracting a negative integer using three different viewpoints (difference, counters, and number line movements). Multiplication and division of integers is explained using counters, first of all, and then relying on the properties of multiplication and division. We use multiplication and division in the context of enlarging or shrinking geometric figures in the coordinate grid.< Less
