Middle-School Math Explained
by Brian Kahover
Takehome Teacher, written by veteran middle-school math teacher Brian Kahover, puts everything you need to know about middle-school math in one convenient, easy-to-use, handbook. Takehome Teacher was written to help parents and students work their way through the entire spectrum of middle-school/junior high math - from decimals, number theory, and statistics to geometry, equations, and polynomials. Takehome Teacher gives clear, concise explanations of practically every concept covered in grades six through eight. It is laid out with a logical progression of skills and has a handy index for finding information on any concept or vocabulary term presented in the text. The main purpose of Takehome Teacher is to help students complete their homework and to make parents feel comfortable helping them along the way. (Parents may also learn a few things they may not remember or never really understood!) Completed homework leads to greater understanding, which leads to increased confidence and self-esteem. And, a solid grasp of math fundamentals will not only benefit students in high school but throughout their lives. With high-stakes testing such an important part of today's public school education, Takehome Teacher is an important tool for helping students raise grades and improve test scores. It should take its place on the shelf next to the family dictionary and encyclopedias.
