Math in Practice

Math in Practice, the new resource from Susan O’Connell and colleagues, is a comprehensive, grade-by-grade resource designed to fit with any math program or resource you are using. It is not a curriculum. It identifies the big ideas of both math content and math teaching and shares key instructional strategies—and why those strategies matter. Math in Practice will support teachers, administrators, and entire school communities as they rethink the effective teaching of mathematics in grades K–5.

I reviewed the fourth grade book. It is organized into modules and the modules/specific content can be used in any order as needed based on what curriculum you are using and/or areas you want to concentrate on. This is a resource for classroom teachers, but I think it would be equally helpful for home school teachers, too. Spiral bound, it’s easy to fold back, highlight in, and add notes to. Individual grades can be purchased separately or as a bundle (k-5). Heinemann also offers more curricular resources in the areas of reading and writing.

Heinemann Publishing provided this book to help facilitate the writing of an honest review. A positive review is not guaranteed, and all opinions are my own. No other compensation was received.
