Common Core State Standards require children leaving 7th grade to be able to understand and fluently solve multi-step problems using mathematical operations and involving algebraic expressions, and employing multiple problem solving strategies. Summer Solutions Grade 7 Problem Solving is an excellent mathematics resource for students entering 8th grade. Each summer workbook provides a way to bridge the summer learning gap while developing fluency with an array of problem-solving strategies. Some of these include Guess and Check, Looking for a Pattern, Solving a Simpler Equation, Using Logical Reasoning, Making a Model, and Making/Using a Table. The workbook provides instruction and practice with seventh grade math skills, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, proportions, probability, patterns, tables, graphs, geometry, data, and measurement. By completing 30 lessons of mixed review over the summer (one lesson, three days a week), students enter 8th grade, ready to tackle word problems with highly effective strategies. These summer workbooks include Help Pages and a complete answer key.
