This is the teacher's manual to accompany part 1 of the workbook for grade 4 pupils in the Comprehensive Instructional Management System, a teacher-designed unified mathematics curriculum for kindergarten through grade 7. It is composed of a curriculum, a testing component, and a computer-managed reporting system. The curriculum is organized into modules of similar skills or understandings from 14 topics. Each module has: a suggested period of duration for student mastery; a listing of new skills to be mastered by the student in the form of performance objectives; a section devoted to vocabulary, terms, and symbols; getting-started activities on prerequisite skills in preparation for undertaking new objectives; strategies for teaching the new skills; and student activities for providing reinforcement for the newly learned objective. After the sequence of modules and content by topic are displayed, teaching suggestions for 86 modules on 73 performance objectives are given. The content is from the topics of: numbers and numeration; addition; subtraction; fractions; multiplication; division; fractions; decimals; integers; geometry; measurement; algebraic concepts; graphs, probability, statistics; and problem solving, plus review. Pages from the student's workbook are interspersed with the suggested activities. (MNS)
