In an attempt to lower the frustration that some feel while working on mathematical problems, author Chauna Bingham has created A Guide to Middle School Math. Published through Xlibris, this book provides effective, step-by-step examples to solving basic math problems.
Although many find mathematics to be a very interesting subject, a good number of people would also say that it is one of the most difficult. For many individuals, whether they are students or not, math may be a source of frustration. A Guide to Middle School Math helps to explain basic math concepts through straightforward, sequential steps and easy to follow examples and explanations. This guide picks up the basics of math instruction and fills in the blanks where some of the textbooks have been lacking. Giving examples to such math essentials as dividing decimals by whole numbers, changing of improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa, rounding/estimating mixed numbers and fractions, problem solving, graphs and statistics, integers, algebra, and much more.
A Guide to Middle School Math can be a supplemental resource for a math program that is already in place, or it can be used as individual teaching material to review individual concepts. As it is aligned with most state math curriculums, A Guide to Middle School Math would also make an effective tool for reviewing/preparing for state testing. In addition, the mathematics reviewed within A Guide to Middle School Math are also the concepts that can be found on the mathematics quantitative sections on both the ACT and GRE standardized tests for college students. Not only middle school math students, but also parents, teachers, and some college students will find this guide both helpful and easy to use. A Guide to Middle School Math conveys how math should never be as difficult as it appears to be.
A Guide to Middle School Math will be featured in the 2010 American Library Association Annual Book Exhibit in Washington, D.C., which will be held June 25-28, 2010. Readers who wish to learn more about this book can log on to Xlibris.com.
