## Comprehensive Math Curriculum (alphabetical order)

- "Out of the box ready"

Mammoth Math ($) - Free samples and diagnostic tools. Full curriculum or just supplemental materials. Low cost. Purchase hard copies or download versions. K-6 plus algebra 1. Worksheet based.

Math-U-See ($$) - Manipulative-based multisensory curriculum. K-12.

Right Start Mathemathics ($$) - Maniuplatives-based multisensory curriculum for K-4 plus intermediate math and algebra. Uses abacus with beads color coded by 5's for easy visualization of numbers. (This is different from Montessori math or Cuisenaire rods which uses 10 different colors of beads or color blocks for math making visual recognition potentially more difficult.)

Saxon Math ($$) - Complete curriculum K-12 plus alegebra 1, 2, geometry, and Calculus. Textbook based but manipulatives available for early grades.

Shiller Math ($$) - Manipulatives-based Montessori style curriculum for grades K-7.

Singapore Math ($$) - Complete curriculum for K-12 plus alegebra 1, 2, and pre-calculus.

Teaching Textbooks ($$ - Multimedia computer based teaching for independent learners to watch the lesson, do the problems, and watch a tutor explain the ones that were missed.

**mastery oriented**: it concentrates fairly long on one topic, with fairly few topics per grade;- focuses on
**conceptual understanding**; - uses lots of
**visual models and exercises based on those**; - emphasizes
**mental math**and developing**number sense**; **nearly self-teaching**since the explanations of concepts are found in the student worktext. Thus this curriculum requires fairly little preparation time from the teacher.

Math-U-See ($$) - Manipulative-based multisensory curriculum. K-12.

- Math skills are taught explicitly
- There is a definite, logical sequence of concept instruction that is systematic and cumulative
- A structured, step-by-step procedure for introducing, reviewing, and practicing concepts
- Multi-sensory tools to engage the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic channels simultaneously in rapid succession
- Continuous, ongoing assessment and progress monitoring allow for frequent opportunities to re-teach

- Uses Concrete > Pictorial > Abstract approach
- Encourages active thinking process, communication of mathematical ideas and problem solving
- Develops the foundation students will need for more advanced mathematics
- Emphasizes mental math and the model drawing approach
