I am always looking for a math curriculum that I can use successfully in my multigrade classrooms. I check for four basic criteria: deep-thinking, real-life applications, hands-on, and self-paced/individual. I couldn’t find anything. So I have been creating my own “tour books” that guide students through math topics. The basic idea is that students go through a series of real-life problems, figure out patterns, understand the concept, and then develop a strategy to figure them out. And then at the point, they learn the standard algorithm or short-cut. It makes for powerful learning, but can be frustrating, no pain-no gain! They don’t call me the Evil Math Wizard for nothing! Anyway, I have two of these available through my TPT store and I just finished the second one – Dividing Fractions. FYI – My husband help edit the worksheets, and boy was his brain melting!
