Math and More Overview

Math and More programs recognize that children come to school with a great deal of knowledge about the world around them and significant experience in recognizing shapes, patterns and movement, gathering and comparing information, and following directions. 

The Math and More mathematics curriculum builds upon this knowledge with learning activities that connect mathematical ideas to students own interests, neighborhoods, family and cultural backgrounds. The curriculum also builds upon leading-edge research, supporting the content areas identified by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) as needing increased attention in primary grades:

bulletPatterns and relationships
bulletGeometry
bulletProbability and statistics

 

Features and Benefits

bulletConcepts, processes, problem solving, and higher order thinking skills
bulletCombines need for physical manipulatives with computer-based environments
bulletOn-line and off-line teacher materials and lesson plans
bulletOn-line and off-line student materials and activities
bulletVideo component
bulletSpeech support in Math and More for Grades 1 & 2
bullet12 - 18 weeks of math curriculum
bulletSupports Teaching and Learning with Computers (TLC)
bulletConstructivist learning environment

Educational Goals

bulletStudents learn to value mathematics. bulletStudents learn to communicate mathematically. bulletStudents learn to reason mathematically. bulletStudents become confident in their ability to do mathematics. bulletProblem solving used as a primary means of learning mathematics. bulletStudents see ways in which mathematics is used in the real world. bulletProvides suggestions and guidance on ongoing assessment techniques.

Standards

bulletSchool completion bulletStudent academic achievement bulletLeadership in math and science bulletParental participation bulletNational Council of Teachers of Mathematics bulletCovers the major content areas identified as needing increased attention in the primary grades: geometry, patterns and relationships, and probability, statistics, and data collection. bulletMeets the standard on communication, as students regularly relate everyday language to mathematical language in whole-class discussions and small groups.  bulletThe themes and activities chosen for the units meet the standard on mathematical connections by providing connections to students' prior  interests, their neighborhoods, and their family and cultural backgrounds.

 

Developer's Corner

Math and More was developed by IBM Canada and Education Development Center (EDC) in response to the recommendations of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards. EDC is a publicly supported nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting human development through education.

Classroom Environment

Math and More is based on the vision of children as active learners, working on meaningful problems, collaborating with others, reflecting on their own progress, and using a variety of resources, including computer-based tools and video. Math and More in a Teaching and Learning with Computers (TLC) classroom environment provides for whole group and small group activities.

Math and More was designed to be used in a Teaching and Learning with Computers environment where the on-line software activities and off-line learning center activities complement one another and reinforce the concepts being taught. The software is supported by their respective Teacher Guides.  

The Teacherís Guides provide support through lesson plans as well as reproducible masters. The Teacherís Guide also includes integration ideas to integrate mathematics across the curriculum as well as ideas for classroom management, assessment, and home/school connections.

 

Professional Development

Math and More is an integrated primary math curriculum and embodies the vision articulated by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. This training is typically a two day training for each Math and More product. Participants will be able to:

bulletUnderstand the computer activities and the written components of Math and More and how they work together. bulletUse the Math and More electronic file system. bulletDescribe how Math and More supports the NCTM standards relating to children as active learners, using activities that stress problem solving and problem posing, collaboration and communication, reasoning and explaining and mathematical connections.
