Key to Percents Curriculum Review

Key to Percents Curriculum Review

Our Experience

Key to Percents is perfect for the child who needs to know why a math problem works. The material is presented in a logical, easy to understand format. Percents are explained not only in a mathematical format, but also explained for use in “real life.” Each book covers a specific percent skill building upon the skills learned in the previous book. Not only were we able to cover the information at a fairly brisk pace, but when we finished, I was confident that my son had mastered the skills. I used this curriculum in conjunction with our primary math book.
