Title:  Progress in Mathematics 2006
Description: Progress in Mathematics 2006 is a new core curriculum for students in kindergarten through grade 6. Progress in Mathematics 2006 differs substantively from Progress in Mathematics 2000 in both content and assessment material. Progress in Mathematics 2006 uses a sequence of systematic lesson plans to teach mathematical concepts and skills. It incorporates the following features at each grade level: explicit instruction of mathematics content; development of conceptual understanding through a three-step process that begins with hands-on activities (concrete thinking to visual thinking to symbol use); fluency in numerical computation; problem solving; development of mathematical vocabulary; practice and review; and different types of assessment. Student textbooks, student workbooks, and teacher's editions are available for each grade level, as well as manipulatives and online practice exercises.
