TLC Mathematics is a spiral math curriculum based upon NCTM standards.
It was developed by John Schiener in IBM development labs.
TLC Mathematics is a series of three instructional software products that let teachers and students
discover mathematical concepts together. Each product contains a collection of software activities and
curriculum materials created for the respective grade levels. The software activities for
TLC Mathematics were drawn from Exploring Measurement, Time and Money, Exploring Mathematics with
Manipulatives, Exploring Math Concepts and SchoolVista Mathematics.
TLC Mathematics has a management component that allows a teacher to assign a
single lesson, a variety of lessons or the whole program to their class.
 Addresses math education in grades K  6 
 Integrates technology into the ongoing teaching and learning activities of the classroom 
 Encourages collaborative learning and communication 
 Emphasizes crosscurricular links 
 Focuses on concepts, process, problemsolving and higher order thinking skills 
 Involves the teacher and allows flexibility for teaching styles 
 Provides schools with the choice of using the products as complementary to existing curriculum
or as a
core curricular product 
Standards
SchoolVista Mathematics addresses the following mathematics curriculum standards for grades 1 
6 as identified by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Curriculum and Evaluation Standards
for School Mathematics document:
 Mathematics as problem solving 
 Mathematics as communication 
 Mathematics as reasoning 
 Mathematical connections 
 Estimation 
 Number sense and numeration 
 Concepts of whole number operations 
 Whole number computation 
 Geometry and spatial sense 
 Measurement 
 Statistics and probability 
 Fractions and decimals 
 Patterns and relationships 
John Schiener led the development of the TLC Mathematics series and Math and More
series. View his Developers

TLC Mathematics was designed to be used in a Teaching and Learning with Computers environment
where the online software activities and offline learning center activities complement one another and
reinforce the concepts being taught. The software is supported by their
respective Teacher Guides.
The Teacher’s Guides
provide support through lesson plans as well as reproducible
masters. The Teacher’s Guide also includes integration ideas to
integrate mathematics across the curriculum as well as ideas for classroom
management, assessment, and home/school connections.
TLC Math combines the mathematical content from
Measurement, Time and Money, Exploring Math Concepts and Exploring Math with
Manipulatives and organizes them into mathematical strands. Upon
completion of the TLC Math training, participants
will be able to:
 Understand the concepts and practices of the
TLC Math software and how the curriculum strands are organized 
 Understand the teacher and student steps
necessary to begin using the software 
 Understand the layout of the Teacher's Guide
and the materials provided for integration 
 Understand how the TLC Concept supports the
software and activities provided in the Teacher's Guide 
The TLC Math
training is typically a one to two day training for each grade TLC Math
product.
Every teacher will require instruction in how to use these programs and how
to integrate it into their The TLC Mathematics training will support teachers in the use of the content and process skills called
for in the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics standards. This training will enable teachers to create
and use instructional plans for use as the basis for classroom instruction in core mathematical concepts.
* Audio required for Grades 1 and
