Basic Math Skills Rescue from Math Essentials ~ a TOS review

Disclaimer: I received a Complimentary copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. All opinions I have expressed are my own or those of my family.

Morning friends! I hope your school year is going well! We are finishing up our first 6 weeks this afternoon. During these last 6 weeks, Montana and McKenzie have been working in the new books from Richard W. Fisher called Basic Math Skills Rescue Part 1 and Part 2. If you have a student who needs some extra practice with math skills I would see about getting your hands on these books from Math Essentials

The Basic Math Skills Rescue books do just what the title says. They each highlight and focus on the critical math skills that many students struggle to master including: Whole Numbers & Integers, fractions, decimal & percents, geometry, problem solving, and pre-algebra sills. 


Both books have roughly over 240 pages each and include an answer key for all the problems. The pages are printed on heavy weight paper and have a nice grit to them. There is space to work some of the smaller, less in-depth problems, but using a separate sheet of paper would work better for longer multi-step problems. There is also a space to write your answers. The glossary in the back includes a list of math terms, multiplication table, important symbols and more in the back of both books. 


My girls have enjoyed using these books and filling in the gaps that they may have. McKenzie is actually using Part 1 to work ahead in math while Montana is using Part 2 to get extra practice on the geometry skills she has not fully mastered yet.


Math Essentials
Basic Math Skills Rescue Part 1 and Part 2 from Math Essentials is great for making sure there are no math learning gaps! Bottom line, we will be making room for these books on our bookshelves. II would recommend both of these books for anyone looking for extra, focused math practice. But don’t just take my word for it!
