MathSteps is versatile in that it may be used online, offline or assignments may be printed and handed out.
Geared towards grades 1 and 2, where the most basic concepts of math are being introduced. At the same time, the Basic Section may very effectively serve as a remedial function for higher grade students, who may be having a problem in a given area.
The practice is assigned in sets of five problems per grade, all of them based on problem solving.
Each set of five problems targets the same principle. A step-by-step explanation is provided for the first problem of each of the sets. This helps students to understand the rationale of how the problem is solved and to apply the same logic in the following problems.
GRADE:3/4 are dedicated to addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in very slightly incremental levels of difficulty.
GRADE 5: introduction of fractions, area and perimeter of squares and rectangles, as well as distance/speed/time problems.
GRADE 6: introduces averages, ratios, percentages and addition/subtraction of fractions with the same denominator
GRADE 7: introduces triangles, addition/subtraction, multiplication and division of fractions with different denominators
GRADE 8: introduces circles, Pythagorean Theorem, equations
