Mathematical
Reasoning

Mathematical Reasoning™ books help students devise strategies to solve a wide variety of math problems. These highly effective activities use step-by-step, discussion-based problem-solving and computation to build the math reasoning skills necessary for success in higher-level math and math assessments. This book is written to the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Activities and units spiral slowly, allowing students to become comfortable with concepts but also challenging them to continue building their math skills.

Singapore Early Bird
Kindergarten Mathematics

Singapore math is a teaching method based on the national mathematics curriculum used for kindergarten through sixth grade in Singapore. The term was coined in the United States to describe an approach originally developed in Singapore to teach students to learn and master fewer mathematical concepts at greater detail as well as having them learn these concepts using a three-step learning process: concrete, pictorial, and abstract. In the concrete step, students engage in hands-on learning experiences using concrete objects such as chips, dice, or paper clips. This is followed by drawing pictorial representations of mathematical concepts. Students then solve mathematical problems in an abstract way by using numbers and symbols.

Math-U-See

Math-U-See combines hands-on methodology with incremental instruction and continual review in this manipulative-based program. It excels in its hands-on presentation of math concepts that enables students to understand how math works. It is one of the rare multisensory math programs that continues to use manipulatives up through Algebra 1.

Saxon Math

Saxon math, developed by John Saxon, is a teaching method for incremental learning of mathematics. It involves teaching a new mathematical concept every day and constantly reviewing old concepts. Early editions were deprecated for providing very few opportunities to practice the new material before plunging into a review of all previous material. Newer editions typically split the day’s work evenly between practicing the new material and reviewing old material. Its primary strength is in a steady review of all previous material, which is especially important to students who struggle with retaining the math they previously learned.

Redbird Mathematics:
Advanced Edition

Redbird Mathematics: Advanced Edition, the result of more than 25 years of research at Stanford University, is one of the most thorough online math programs for the elementary grades. Available for kindergarten through seventh grade, the program is geared for gifted students. The program is also great for average students even if they might need to work below their grade level. You will probably find that completing the K-7 program will prepare students to move very quickly through any pre-algebra course.

Illustrative Math

Illustrative Math K–5 sparks student engagement and fosters conceptual understanding of the underlying mathematics principles. IM K–5 Math sparks student engagement and fosters conceptual understanding of the underlying mathematics principles. Students use mathematics to make mathematical connections and develop conceptual understanding. Students enjoy mathematics while they discuss and defend their reasoning.

Above all else, we love kids. Their individuality, their abilities, their passions. Children are amazing people and we consider ourselves lucky to work with them everyday.
