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.
