Below you will find a link to all of the worksheet sets in the "mixed practice" category. The purpose of these worksheets is to supplement standard textbooks, which tend to focus on one subject at a time, with the unintended consequence that subjects which haven't been mentioned in a few weeks get forgotten.

These worksheets can be used regularly in your classroom (maybe one per week, as your students progress through the course), or as an occasional supplement when you recognize that there is a topic or two that your students need more practice on. Most of the worksheets have a "focus" - that is, one subject that appears as a larger percentage of the content. Two or three other topics will appear as well. For example, worksheet 6.1 has a primary focus of factoring difference of squares/perfect squares quadratics, but the worksheet also contains LCM, GCF, fraction manipulation, and word problems.

Care has been taken to follow a fairly standard scope and sequence, so review materials truly are review. In some cases, where sequence varies from curriculum to curriculum, we avoid including some items in the "review" part of the worksheets. For example, some curricula do quadratic equations before systems of equations, and some reverse that order. Thus, while there are worksheets that focus on quadratics, and worksheets that focus on systems, neither topic appears in the review section of the other topic's worksheets.
