Subject: Re: Math Series

Well, I myself am a second year teacher, but I can tell you about a
math series that stinks!  That is the Houghton Mifflin Math Central. 
Although it may sound or look good, it does not facilitate the
learning for the children.  There is ONLY ONE example in every area of
instruction, which does not allow the child to LOOK BACK, in case they
did not understand the concept.  
I think that a series should be able to reinforce the lesson that was
taught with similar examples or even different ways to approach a
problem.  A series should also cover multiple disciplines or at least
incorporate content areas into math.  After all, the REAL WORLD is
integrated together.
I know this may not be much, but it's a thought.
Martha :-)
