"Math Essentials, Elementary School Level" gives elementary school teachers the tools they need to help prepare all types of students for mathematics testing in grades 3 through 5. "Math Essentials" highlights Dr. Thompson's proven approach to teaching math and covers 40 key objectives correlated to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards, including rounding whole numbers, finding equivalent fractions, multiplying two-digit whole numbers, solving word problems, interpreting line graphs, identifying polygons, estimating length and volume, and understanding time. The book is divided into five main sections, with each section containing eight objectives. Each objective includes three developmental lessons—one concrete, one pictorial, and one independent practice—and more than 100 related activity sheets. Practice tests are available at the end of each section, with an explanation of common errors made by students, to help teachers map their students' progress and to help students learn to perform in standardized testing situations.
