Some of the great features you’ll find inside are:

Tic-Tac-Toe
A twist on this classic game helps students develop a solid understanding of factors, prime numbers, and composite numbers.

Dueling Denominators
Students gain practice determining the lowest common denominator between fractions and then adding them.

Simply Simplify
Multiplying fractions can be easier if you simplify the fractions first, and students reinforce these skills by identifying numbers with common factors.

Fitting In
Measuring the length of a book, CD case, and DVD case to determine how many will fit on a shelf gives students confidence in measuring objects in centimeters and finding an answer measured to hundredths.

Fine Lines
Students practice recognizing points, lines, and rays by looking for pairs of lines in a picture and determining which are parallel, perpendicular, or intersecting.

Give your child’s confidence in math a boost with 5th Grade Basic Math Success.

#### Great supplemental workbook for kids having trouble with math at this age.

I love the way the lessons are done and easy to understand and explain to the child. I have a child with a math disability and he feels good about the colorful pages. His pages of math at school are drab and boring and not very inspiring.

#### Great for Review throughout the entire school year.

The 5th grade basic math skills covered everything he studied and a litle more than he actually did in class. I would recommed this book be used in any 5th grade class througout the school year leading up to the examination. I believe it would be a great challenge to the students and better build their math skills, of course they would need to have a great math teacher.
It does have examples that are explained simple enough for the student to understand.
Even though there were a few errors about 5 I believe it was a great review source. Overall I would recommend it.
