Total Math is a math workbook designed for children of grade 2 and above. It teaches students the fundamental mathmatical skills that they must need by the time they enter second grade. It really helped my sister, as she always had difficulty with math. The workbook includes step by step instructions on how to do different problems. Kids get to work with fractions, multiplication practice, and measurement. Then there are practice problems that the children can do to make sure they are fully capable of the math problems that they had to learn. It also has an answer key, so they can check their answers to the practice problems. This book also motivated my sister to do better, because they included stickers, math puzzles, and posters that amused her and kept her interested. Without those things, she probably wouldn't have been able to do it. We also bought it at a pretty cheap price. Sam's Club usually always sells stuff at low prices, but this price was only $5.86. They usually are around $15.00 at other stores. She had so much fun she finished it in two weeks, which was really fast for her. I highly recommend buying it.
