Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
If you need to brush up on your Math skills, I recommend checking out Math Refresher for Adults from Math Essentials. Our second son is 21-years-old, and when he graduated from high school, he was not certain of what he wanted to do for a career. Since we knew we would be moving again, he decided to take some time deciding what he wanted to do. Now we have moved and he has decided he wants to get a culinary degree. So when we had the opportunity to review the Math Refresher for Adults book, I knew it would be perfect for our son to get some practice on his math skills.
Perhaps because I was a high school math teacher in the past, I can appreciate Rick Fisher’s desire to develop unique math materials that allow students to achieve success. As a public school teacher for over 31 years, Rick Fisher has the ability and experience to achieve this objective.
Math Refresher for Adults provides the perfect platform for those who may have a math phobia, those who want to help their children with their homework, for those returning to college, for those applying for a job that requires passing a math competency test, those preparing for the GED, SAT or other standardized tests and more.
This book includes basic math, geometry, problem-solving, Pre-Algebra and Algebra, A Math Resource section, access to free video tutorials for each topic, and more. Our son who is using this book has strived for getting perfect scores for each lesson. So he goes through a lesson, checks his answers, and then goes back through those questions he had problems with until he gets them right. Sometimes that means he just needs to rework the problem while other times he has to work backward from the answer to see what he did wrong.
Our son is working straight through the book, however, it can be used in whatever manner suits the student. For example, if a student only needs to brush up on certain skills or topics they can jump directly to that topic.
So far he has done about 40 pages in the workbook, including some tests. He is pleased with his progress so far. He seems to believe he is demonstrating how much difference a few years has made in his ability to understand and complete math sheets now versus several years ago. I believe part of this rests on the fact he is self-motivated to complete the work. Plus, he has set the standards he wants to achieve himself.
Here are some pages our son has completed:
As someone who loves math, I appreciate the books from Math Essentials because I have children who do not share my passion for math. Math Essentials provides materials that allow my children to achieve success in math.
