# New Elementary Math

For Grades 7-10, this series emphasizes the development of understanding mathematical concepts and their applications, as well as proficiency in problem solving, mathematical reasoning and higher order thinking. Students will work on investigative skills, communication in mathematics, appropriate computation and estimation skills and mental calculation through graded exercises. Exercises are provided for different levels, while chapter reviews, challenging and problem-solving questions, revision exercises for review, the history of math and other elements are also included. Many questions require students to apply knowledge to new situations rather than following a procedure. Grades 7-10; 444 pages, hardcover. Teacher involvement is generally required. Textbook 1 is recommended for 7th Grade.
