The goal of our mathematics program, McGraw-Hill My Math, is for children of all ability levels to be involved and successful in learning mathematics. The program provides an active environment in which children work, think, and communicate with each other about the mathematics they are learning. The mathematics program is a comprehensive, flexible curriculum designed to build conceptual understanding, skill proficiency, problem solving facility and logical reasoning while carefully developing concepts within and across the mathematics strands.
Instruction in the specific mathematics include: number concepts and operations, geometry, measurement, fractions, decimals, percentages, graphs, algebraic thinking and data analysis.
Problem solving in a real world context is the focus of the math instruction. Instruction progresses from manipulation of concrete objects to a combination of concrete objects and pictorial representation, to pictures only and then finally to the use of discrete numbers. Students are engaged in hands-on activities to develop concepts and practice to build skill proficiency.
Using interactive whiteboards students have the option of customized presentations, virtual manipulatives and step-by-step personal tutors.
