Practical Math in Context gives you strategies to solve everyday math problems in a variety of ways. It strengthens your skills and gives you practice with many different math topics. Each of the six books presents topics you are likely to encounter in everyday life. Each book includes problems that involve estimation, equations, mental math, calculators, and critical thinking. Each book includes additional topic-specific skills such as graphing, averages, statistics, ratios, and measurement.
Each unit begins with a preview lesson, which models and explains the types of problems you will encounter in the unit. Then there are five lessons, at least one of which is usually a game. Each unit ends with a review of the unit concepts. There are illustrations and graphic art throughout.
