Primary Mathematics. A Saxon Teacher's Resource Booklet.
Saxon's primary mathematics series is a "hands-on," success-oriented program which emphasizes manipulatives and mental math. The series addresses the multisensory approach to teaching. Its use enables all children to develop a solid foundation in the language and basic concepts of mathematics. Concepts are presented in carefully sequenced, small pieces called increments. New objectives are introduced through carefully selected group activities and all concepts are practiced in each succeeding lesson. Different areas of mathematics are integrated so that children can see their interrelationships. The teacher's manual provides activities and language appropriate for children at each grade level. The manual is scripted for the teacher providing successful questioning strategies that enable children to construct mathematical concepts. The five components of Saxon's primary math program are: (1) The Meeting; (2) The Lesson; (3) Written Practice; (4) Facts Practice; and (5) Assessment. (ASK)
