This resource guide provides teachers with easy-to-access ways to help children "visualize mathematics" to deliver meaningful, authentic learning. Each lesson defines the specific concepts and skills that children will be taught and includes step-by-step procedures for children to use in solving a problem that easily links math to their day-to-day lives. Full color photographs highlight the steps used in hands-on learning. To reinforce learning, each lesson provides additional ways to practice the concepts.
