This is a growing bundle. This bundle currently contains sets 1 - 4. Set 5 - geometry, will be added throughout the year.
Marigold Math is designed to engage students in productive visual thinking. We have combined traditional Montessori Materials and the youcubed philosophy of Jo Boaler, to support visual processing and deeper mathematical understanding. Common Core State Standards alignment have also been added to each card.
Drawings, materials, and motion guide students through multiple representations of mathematical concepts. The students develop ‘grit’ as they use their new understanding to ‘grapple’ with extended questioning and powerful mathematical learning.
Marigold Math uses didactic materials to guide a student's understanding from concrete to the abstract. At the beginning of each level, students are invited to participate in a teacher lead presentation. The teacher should use few words as s/he models proper use of materials and demonstrates step-by-step skills.
Each Activity card uses illustrations and simple instructions to remind the student of the proper step-by-step skills.
As the student progresses from card to card they build independence and increased automaticity.
Cards 1.a–1.j These are review cards designed to allow the student to “roam-in-the-
known” as they become familiar with the daily math card process:
• identifying the assigned card
• gathering the materials
• completing the activity
• recording work in their Math Journal
• returning materials to the shelves
