This blog is devoted to simple everyday math practice for people at the purple level, which corresponds in the United States to 8th grade, approximately 13 years of age.

Each week, we post five blog posts.

Each blog post has five questions. The questions are intended to be easy practice of basic skills and concepts.

The answers are in the Answers page.

Each week there is a theme. As you do the exercises, you can think about the theme and fit it into your math knowledge.

If you subscribe by email to the blog, you will get an email reminder every time there is a new post. It’s a great idea to do the exercises for each post on the same day you get the email. Don’t look back! Just keep with us!
