### Editorial Reviews

##### Library Journal
This math review for parents of children in grades five to eight starts with self-tests containing about ten questions and then shows detailed solutions to problems in numbers and numeration, number theory, fractions, decimals and percents, geometry, prealgebra, and statistics. Tucked in among the problems are tidbits of advice about the math curriculum, teaching methods, and ways to help children who are foundering. This is a concise overview of the topics, with a glossary and reference tables offering additional help, but parents could probably learn as much by looking at their child's textbook.-Amy Brunvand, Fort Lewis Coll. Lib., Durango, Col.
