Content chapters first develop a math topic, and then extend the same topic, thus providing foundational material for primary grades and even more appropriate material for upper elementary and intermediate grades. Other useful features highlight misconceptions often held about math operations and concepts, ways to be inclusive of various cultural backgrounds, findings from key research in mathematics, and key technology resources.
