Features & Benefits
Numeracy skills start with understanding whole numbers and performing arithmetic operations with whole numbers. For complete numeracy skills, the concepts and use of part numbers must be understood. This is a subject area where many students have some difficulty with the concepts. Without a strong understanding of numeracy skills, students will struggle with other parts of the math curriculum.
Part numbers can be expressed in different forms, as fractions, decimals or percents. Math Course 2, Decimals & Percents: Step by Step covers how to perform arithmetic operations with decimals and percents and how to convert part numbers between fractions, decimals and percents. The use of ratios and proportions and percent problems are also covered in this math help software. A complete list of Topics covered by this Course appears below.
The subject of Decimals is recognized as a complete ‘math strand’ within the math curriculum. Math Course 2 covers 32 learning outcomes which meet or exceed the standards set by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics for decimals & percents and also correlate to state standards. Decimals & Percents curriculum is spread between Grades 3 and 7 and its concentration by Grade varies by state.
The Course content is organized sequentially so earlier Topics will correlate to the earlier delivery of curriculum. The arithmetic work and problem solving tends to be mostly concentrated at Grades 5 and 6. Consequently, our Grade rating for the Decimals & Percents: Step by Step Course is:Target: 5 & 6, Remedial: 6 and up, Enrichment: 3,4 & 5. Students can progress to grade level and suspend further work or continue to move forward for enrichment.
Each student is pre-tested at the beginning of each Unit (8 Units in this Course) and a lesson plan based on learning needs is developed – no annoying repetition of subjects that are well understood – just what you need to learn.
