Really. This isn't going to hurt at all . . .
Students discover interesting ways to see patterns in math word problems, and then make the correct computations to find solutions. In the process, they work with decimals and fractions, compare rates, and work with proportions and percents. The author presents everyday real-world examples which use problem-solving strategies that align with those of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. The examples are presented in easy to understand language and formats that help guide students through problems in statistics, probability, and even the fundamentals of algebra. Titles in Barron's Painless Series are specially designed to remove the painful aspects of classroom instruction and transform learning into fun. A final, fascinating chapter helps students search for math word problems and activities available on the Internet.
