*Strategies and approaches can be used with any mathematics program.
What math content does the series focus on?
The program addresses fraction standards (grades 3-5) from the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and related mathematical practices. Foundational concepts (models, equivalence, comparing, etc.) and operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) concepts are included. The content is also appropriate for Grades 6-8 educators who support struggling students. The online mini-sessions are anytime/anyplace and no prior online learning experience is needed.
