There are lessons for all of the student pages and an Answer Key for the Student Workbook. Parents are guided though a series of lessons that give sample dialogues that a teacher might have with a student who is learning. Circle Math, unique to the Patterns in Arithmetic series, is used to guide students to many discoveries and to create algorithms. Learners create, routinely look for, and discover patterns in numbers and shapes. They invent problems for themselves and others, estimate, predict, and look for answers that make sense; they develop heuristics (practices that help them solve problems.
A constructivist approach in which students learn through hands-on exploration, discovery, inventions, and the creation of models.
The Parent/Teacher Guide has instructions on how to teach the lessons, sample dialogues, games, and the Answer Key. The Student Workbook has worksheets and practice pages. We highly recommended that you order both for a complete package.
