Key to Percents emphasizes mental computation and estimation skills—because most work with percents is done without pencil and paper. Then students are taught to solve percent problems using equal fractions and decimal multiplication. Finally, percents are used to solve word problems in a variety of applications.
Key to Percents assumes only a knowledge of fraction and decimal computation. Minimal reading is required, so students can work independently or in small groups.

We used this set with our son who hates math, and he absolutely loved it. We particularly liked the fact that they look at problems and study them from very different perspectives, so kids will get the concept one way or another. It really is a great buy! —Scott Zimmer, Parent, San Diego, CA
