Students will receive full credit (100%) if all 20 lessons are completed in the following manner:
- Calculators may NOT be used for any of these problems, unless the problem is labeled “calculator skill”.
- All calculations and “work” must be shown in the workbook in the space provided.

- Students then redo any problems until they are correct. Please include this work as well.
