All the Super Math Units were developed using the
following strategies and methodologies:

Scaffolding        

there.  For example:  order of operation starts with multiplication as
there.  For example:  order of operation starts with multiplication as
groups of;  graphing linear equations starts with patterns.  Scaffolding
requires direct teaching to introduce the next steps and help students
make connections between one step and the next without memorized
rules and or procedures.
rules and or procedures.


Multiple Representations

Concepts are represented with words, pictures, symbols, tables
and/or graphs.  Multiple Representations enable students to make
concepts more concrete and easier to understand.  It enables
students to move from concrete to abstract.  For example:  in the
order of operations unit students represent expressions using words,
pictures and symbols.

Use of Graphic Organizers

Graphic organizers help students organize, visualize and connect the
ideas and concepts. Graphic Organizers allow students to "see"
patterns and relationships between and within concepts.  Each page
of the Super Math Units is designed in a way that helps student see
the different representations all on the same page and  make logical
connections between one step and the next and the different
representations.
