The deep conceptual understanding that’s the hallmark of the program leads to strong skills fluency and the ability to make generalizations within and among mathematical strands. As students grow and learn to think critically, teachers develop their own rich understanding of math through detailed instruction and embedded support.
Students develop an understanding of mathematics through real-world situations and visual supports.
Students learn multiple ways to solve problems, including algorithms based on reasoning.
Teaching materials were designed to embody a "learn-while-teaching" style.
Students make connections between key topics both within and across grades.
Math Talk gives students the chance to ask questions and use their MathBoards to explain and justify their solutions.
The online Student Activity Book gives young learners the tools to explore, practice, and deepen their understanding of key math concepts.
The Math Worlds augmented reality app gives students an amazingly interactive opportunity to apply what they’ve learned.
Games in the online Math Activity Center develop fluency in math facts and operations.
Students build concrete and pictorial relationships with digital manipulatives.
Students can download and practice content offline via HMH Player®.
Professional development, classroom demonstration, and daily routine videos are at point of use in the Teacher Edition.
Lessons include teaching and inquiry notes, visual models, and suggestions for Math Talk.
Mathematical processes, practices, and learning progressions are featured in every lesson.
Formative assessment reporting helps group students for instruction and identifies appropriate differentiation resources.
The Math Activity Center supports every child with Practice, Re-teach, and Challenge resources for each lesson.
Customize instruction with the Personal Math Trainer® Powered by Knewton™, an online personalized learning and assessment system with real-time reporting and adaptive practice.
The instruction keeps students constantly moving forward while providing teachers with explicit support. Learn more about Dr. Fuson’s approach through the samplers below.
Students understand the concepts behind the math and build connections between concrete, pictorial, and abstract relationships.
Students learn to ask questions, and use the answers to devise thoughtful, informed approaches to solving problems.
Teachers use the program’s extensive, lesson-by-lesson support to supplement and deepen their own mathematical understanding.
Math Talk classrooms are lively, collaborative environments where children share their ideas and solutions and listen respectfully to the ideas of their classmates.
