Time the worksheets. Two lessons may be done in 25 minutes, or you may divide up the week allowing 5 minutes for every 5 problems. If students are unable to finish two lessons in 25 minutes, they should nevertheless complete the page and note how much extra time was needed.

Students will receive full credit (100%) if all 20 lessons are completed in the following manner:

  1. Calculators may NOT be used for any of these problems, unless the problem is labeled “calculator skill”.
  2. All calculations and “work” must be shown in the workbook in the space provided.
  3. As each worksheet is finished, parents use the answer key provided in the back of the workbook to correct the problems.
  4. Students then redo any problems until they are correct. Please include this work as well.
