Math

Some of you have asked me about how my math curriculum works, so I have been taking some time to organize my math posts in a more orderly manner. Because of this, I will be re-posting some older math posts, but I will be combining them into more step-by-step themes. I hope this will help some of you looking for more structure. For others, I appreciate your putting up with a bunch of re-posts.
Thanks!
Here is the basic order in which I do math...

Pre K-2nd Grade: (Math Their Way) I do this list of activities in this basic order, spiraling around each of these four years. I stop each area when the activities seem to hard for them, because I know I will be getting back to them the following year, or when they seem to have mastered the content of that area. I will be adding links when I finish with each area's post.

As soon as I have finished the material from Math Their Way and Mathematics, A Way of Thinking, I begin using Learn Math Fast System to practice or introduce any math skills needed before preceding to high school math.I have had my students successfully use Videotext Algebra for highschool math, but I plan to continue with the Learn Math Fast System for my youngest two boys. I will let you know how this works as we use it. (Here is my review of the Learn Math Fast System.)
