Mathematics Foundations: Well-Trained Mind Academy Edition is a set of two custom-made books for the Fundamentals of Mathematics (formerly Mathematics Foundations) offered by the Well-Trained Mind Academy. The books are compiled of lessons and pages taken from grades 1 through 7 of the Math Mammoth Complete Curriculum (Light Blue Series).

The course is designed for those students who have completed an elementary mathematics program but do not possess strong math skills and who may have have gaps in their math knowledge, preventing success in the traditional curriculum sequence. It is designed to prepare students for upper middle school mathematics and science courses at the Well-Trained Mind Academy, including pre-algebra.

The course includes a review of basic arithmetic skills, including operations, number theory, decimals, percents, integers, variables, the Cartesian plane, and basic geometry. Emphasis is given to mastering fractions.

The material is divided into two books: one for Semester 1, and another for Semester 2. They're available here as PDF downloads. Answer keys are included as separate PDF files.

The main topics in the semester 1 book are:

• place value and large numbers
• division and multiplication
• fractions and decimals
• integers
• the order of operations
• mean, median, and mode
• primes, GCF, LCM
• percent
• powers and exponents

The main topics in the semester 2 book are:

• equations and expressions
• multiplying and dividing fractions & decimals
• the order of operations
• patterns and the coordinate grid
• measures of variation
• stem-and-leaf-plots
• divisibility and primes
• angles, circles, and rectangles
• area and perimeter
• percent and simple interest
• ratios and rates
• equations that involve taking a square root
• the Pythagorean theorem
