Summary

Appropriate Topical Sequence: Moves from the concrete to the pictorial to the abstract, reflecting the way math is generally taught in elementary schools. Problem Solving Emphasis: Features the largest collection of problems (over 2200), worked examples, and problem-solving strategies in any text of its kind. Applications: Statistics and probability receive a thorough treatment at an appropriate level. Geometry Coverage: The treatment of two and three dimensional shapes is based on the van Hiele model. Measurement is treated extensively in both the metric and customary systems. Integrated Technology: Technology is integrated throughout the text in a meaningful way. The technology includes activities from the expanded eManipulative activities, spreadsheet activities, Geometer's Sketchpad activities, and calculator activities using a graphics calculator and Math Explorer.
