Math Mammoth Expressions & Equations

This is a worktext covering the order of operations, equations, expressions, and simplifying expressions in several different ways in 6th-7th grade level.

The main principles are explained and practiced both with visual models and in abstract form, and the lessons contain varying practice problems that approach the concepts from various angles. We also touch on inequalities and graphing on a very introductory level. In order to make the learning of these concepts easier, the expressions and equations in this book do not involve negative numbers (as they typically do when studied in pre-algebra and algebra).

Math Mammoth Rational Numbers

In Math Mammoth Rational Numbers we study rational numbers, which are numbers that can be written as a ratio of two integers. All fractions and whole numbers are rational numbers, and so are percentages and decimals (except non-ending non-repeating decimals). Hopefully, students already know a lot about rational numbers and how to calculate with them. Our focus in this book is to extend that knowledge to negative fractions and negative decimals.

Math Mammoth Linear Equations

Math Mammoth Linear Equations presents the student with the basics of solving linear equations, including equations that involve a variable on both sides and equations that require the usage of the distributive property to eliminate parentheses. We also briefly study inequalities and graphing. This book best suits pre-algebra or grades 7-8.
