Confidently teach math with manipulatives to build problem-solving skills!
Introducing the NEW Hands-On Standards Solution
(Available for Grades K–2: January 2021)
Hands-On Standards is designed to deepen understanding of key math concepts using manipulatives and scaffolded lessons to seamlessly transition from the concrete to the abstract.
NEW Mini-Lesson Format! Embedded differentiation and EL support.
NEW Problem Solving Routine! A progressing series of problem types focused around key grade-level skills.
NEW Manipulatives Added! New manipulatives like the NumberLine™ Clock help students master rigorous standards.
NEW Student Pages! Student pages aligned to lessons included online. (Available in Spanish)
NEW Intervention Lessons! 20 targeted lessons that match the mini-lesson format and include assessment and progress monitoring tools.
Hands-On Standards reinforces key, grade-level math concepts and helps students deepen their understanding with hands-on manipulatives and activities.
Daily Problem Solving
What is it? A year-long daily routine focused on problem solving and critical thinking skills. Each week students solve a progressing series of problem types aligned to key math skills. Includes 180 double-sided cards, 36 videos, and correlating student pages.
Why it works: Develops problem-solving skills that allow students to successfully solve and understand multistep problems in any situation.
What is it? Supplemental 15-30 minute, hands-on lessons that easily incorporate the use of manipulatives. Includes embedded support, formative assessment questions, and student pages for each lesson. 42 lessons per grade.
Why it works: Students build a deeper understanding of key math concepts by using manipulatives as they progress through Concrete-Representational-Abstract lessons.
Target challenging math standards with photo-illustrated lesson plans
Hands-on Standards focuses on the most challenging topics for students and uses manipulatives to help deepen their understanding of math concepts. Step-by-step, photo-illustrated guides reinforce teachers' content knowledge for ease of implementation in the classroom, enabling them to differentiate instruction in invervention, small group, and whole class situations.
