Helping out your 6th grader
I purchased this book to help out my 6th grader. The children have workbooks that go along with the book. However, the workbooks never give examples of how to solve the math problem. Being a parent, out of school for years, I cannot remember how to do all of the problems. Therefore, having the book at home is most helpful.
The books are extremely heavy for your child to carry from home and back to school every day, not to mention the strain on their backs! I love having a copy at home to rely on.
Every night my daughter has math homework and we pull out the book and go over the problems. This teaches both of us how to solve the problems, while giving us the opportunity to work together, bond, and having sharing time with each other.
What a superb math book. I would reccommend it to anyone, just to learn again!
