A Balanced Approach to Math will help your students master important math skills and concepts! The skill areas for these books were based on TIMSS (Third International Math and Science Study). This study identified the areas in which U.S. students have the most difficulty in math. The step-by-step lesson plans allow you to teach concepts through four developmental stages: Concrete, Pictorial, Procedural, and Application. These stages make vital math connections and build understanding for the learner. Each book includes 28 lesson plans. Reproducibles included. 8 1/2'' x 11'' (21.5cm x 28cm). 80 pp.
