Subject: Math Series

I have some personal recommendations for math series. The first is Opening Eyes to Mathematics and Visual Mathematics by the Math Learning Center. These are excellent programs. They are very manipulative, hands-on, constructivist learning. Makes the students feel very empowered mathematically. Anybody else use this? How do you like it? Another program that I love is University of Chicago Everyday Math Series. My former district adopted this and if used right, students will achieve wonderfully. It is teacher intense and you need to be willing to really teach math. It is also very integrated with science and social studies. Everything is in context. The only issue I had wiht this program is that it is hard to teach in a multiage class. Otherwise it is amazing. Anybody have thoughts or comments on these programs? I would like to hear from others using them and what you think about them. Claudia
