I teach pre-algebra to students who are far below level. My kids have made good gains year after year with hands-on methods and with study guides I have made for them throughout the year. I have created so many materials which are like "cheat" sheets of quick reference guides for topics. My students use their reference sheets or study guides and eventually do not need to refer to the study guides. As you can imagine, making study guides with essential information is very time consuming.
For example, there is a page in the book just for triangle terms with a visual and explanations for triangle, side, vertex, area, angle bisector.... another page has the common forms of linear equations--standard, vertical line, horizontal line, slope-intercept, etc.
My two daughters who are in high school were already glancing through the book because of the reference pages for Calculus. This book is a wonderful reference for intermediate grades (4-6) all the way through...
I wasn't sure exactly how I would use this book since it is my first year teaching. The resources compiled in this book are so simple that any student can follow along. There are teacher only lists that deal with things like struggling students, students who hate math, student who just like to be a pain in the butt, etc. The back of the book also contains some cool hands on projects that can be used. Geometry nets, tangram cutouts, blank checks for a financial unit, graph paper that you can copy or scan to use in the classroom. The book goes from pre-algebra to calculus. Besides all the problems, definitions, and explanations, the book has specific strategies to help students with all types of learning styles get a grasp of the material. Testing strategies are also in one of the "lists". Don't let the word list fool you this book is soooo much more!!! Buy it you won't be disappointed.
This is an amazing book for math teachers. It is divided up by subject (i.e. Algebra, Calculus), and then lists formulas or equations for them. It's not a work book, so don't think that that is what you're getting. Instead, it is a resource book that you can use to share with students or to brush up on your knowledge of math.
I highly recommend this if you're a math teacher or want a good reference book for math.
