Easy Math. Teacher's Guide.
The objective of the Easy Math Program is to give all students (not just those with mathematical talent) an intuitive grasp of the quantitative principles on which mathematics is based, so they will be able to execute its basic operations with insight, and move on to its higher concepts with confidence. The program approaches this objective by a blend of carefully sequenced activities. These activities, which begin at an elementary level, have been developed to eliminate the most common errors children make when doing seatwork mathematics. New concepts and skills are always introduced in the context of concrete, manipulative experiences. In addition, the activities provide a great deal of support for the gradual transfer of insights which children acquire in the context of their object manipulation to the world of numerals and symbols. Provided in this teaching guide are the aims, list of special materials needed, instructional strategies, related activities, and game information for activities in seven student booklets. Topic areas of booklets include: counting to 10; addition and subtraction (under 10); tens and units; early multiplication/division; beginning money skills; telling time; and equivalents/fractions. A separate section on use of games and game boards is also included. (JN)
