Teaching to Mastery Math

This is a different approach to providing teaching help for Singapore Approach math. Rather than grade level, this series is organized by practice area (i.e. whole numbers, fractions, and decimals with the more generic bar modeling thrown in for good measure). It's designed for teachers (parents?) that want a deeper understanding of the teaching methodologies of those areas. However, I can also see how they would be helpful if you have a student who has difficulty grasping a single concept - for instance, fractions - and you want to be able to employ different strategies while focusing on the learning progression within each concept. Each book identifies a progression of skills within that area and then further identifies specific methodologies within each skill. Then there is an illustrated teaching sequence for each (with plenty of room for you to make notes) and a possible teaching sequence with a group of students. Necessary solutions are provided at the end of each chapter. Approximately 150 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
