This mind-building 320-page book reinforces 7th and 8th grade math concepts and skills by asking students to apply middle school mathematics to non-routine problems. This user-friendly book is made up of 100 theme-based collections of problems, conveniently grouped in self-contained, double-sided activity sheets that provide space for student work and contain relevant math facts at the end of the worksheet.

Grouping the problems around common math content helps reinforce the target math concepts, and each activity set is accompanied by a single-sided answer sheet containing strategy tips and detailed solutions. Students are encouraged to try the problems first on their own, using reasoning and the provided math facts. If students struggle with a problem or do not remember a particular math concept, the math facts and strategy tips help reintroduce the concept and suggest ways to solve the problem. Calculators are allowed on activity sets that have a calculator icon at the top of the front side of the set.

Teachers and parents will appreciate the easy-to-understand, comprehensive solutions. This book is a wonderful enrichment tool, but also can be used to assess how well students have learned middle school math concepts.
