​ Included:
203-page paperback book with 30 lessons, 30 worksheets, three chapter tests and one final test
Answer Key in the back of the book with full solutions
Topics covered in volume 3 are typically taught in 7th and 8th grade, but we don't mention grade level in the books.
Upon purchase, you will receive a password to access a page on our website that contains printable pdf versions of every worksheet in the book.
An older student can complete this book in about one month.
Younger students will take two to three months to complete.
The older you are the faster you'll learn!


  • Our Big, Big Bookmark is an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet that contains hints to all the most easily forgotten math concepts from volumes 1 - 4.  So, let's say you're in pre-algebra and you have to divide fractions, and you can't remember if that's when you flip the fraction or not.  Just look down at your Big, Big Bookmark for a quick reminder.  Available for purchase at the bottom of this page and in the Store.

Stand Alone or Supplemental?

If your student can already add, subtract, multiply and divide REALLY WELL, even with a decimal point and can solve the problem below, then you can start with Volume 3 as a stand-alone curriculum for your prealgebra course."Negative five and seven sixteenths divided by two and five eighths"Their answer should be reduced down to "Negative two and one fourteenth."On the other hand, if your student cannot answer the problem above, you should not start with this book.  Volume 2 teaches students how to work with negative mixed numbers.  Volume 1 teaches students the foundation.  If your older student struggles with math, volume 1 is the place to start.  Tell the student it is the only way to find out what they missed.  Plus they will learn a bunch of cool tricks to make math go much faster.  Most high schoolers can complete volumes 1 and 2 in about two months.
Scope and Sequence (Prealgebra)
Students will learn the basic concepts needed to solve for x in a linear equation.
They will solve for x in terms of y to plot lines on a graph.
Ratios and Proportions are used to solve story problems and unit conversion.
Opposite operations are emphasized including the opposite operations Square Root and Exponents.
Students will combine like terms and use the Proper Order of Operations to solve and simplify equations.
Fluent Distributive Property of Multiplication is taught.
The Slope of a Line is found.  Linear equations are graphed.  Students can identify the y-intercept of a line, the origin of a graph, and the x-intercept.


I just wanted to let you know how much my daughter and I love your books. We are what everyone terms “covid homeschoolers”.  Homeschooling has always been in the back of my mind, but I never thought I could teach math so I never did it, until now.  We pulled our daughter Fall of 2020, I knew she had some gaps in math learning but didn’t realize how much she actually didn’t know.  I purchased your books and in Aug 2020 we started with Vol 1. As of today 3/12/21 she is about to complete Vol 3.  Her understanding in math is beyond compare to where she was a year ago. I teach each lesson and even my math understanding has improved from what I learned in the 80s and 90s.  Thank you so much for creating this series of books. My daughters math confidence and ability simply blows me away. I feel she is so much better prepared with math now. No fluff just the facts. I love the simplicity. I can’t wait to see how the remaining books work.
Thank you so much,
Tara, a very grateful mom
