Description


Inching Along describes how the development of the concept of area and perimeter, at a basic level, progresses in the primer.  It proceeds from the meaning of one small square unit to the implication of how one large region with smaller sections can be measured.  Through the use of diagrams and tables, appropriate vocabulary is presented, defined and illustrated.   Numerous interactive widgets are included to provide instant reinforcement and repetition, at increasing levels of difficulty.  A review section has been included, as well as related activities that are applications of the concept.  The primer has a section, comprised of PDF tables and grids, that has been shared.


One inch at a time is sufficient to begin the journey.  Many inches away from completing the destination, progress can be made.   Inch by inch more depth is added and soon it’s back to square one, only this time, armed with the necessary tools to flourish.


The primer is appropriate for all ages.  A basic understanding of English is helpful.  However, the images are instructive.

Feature & Focus

This is a selection of math concepts with explanations, illustrations and/or diagrams, and related activities that have been "field-tested", using a novel approach, with upper and middle grade students.  Some activities are interactive and require Excel for activation.

Note: Additional features are being revised.


Math Words

 

Math words are presented to promote effective communication of mathematics. There is a selection of math words and math words used in conjunction with each other.  The relatedness of words within a group should be reviewed regularly.  Simple illustrations or    examples and brief definitions convey the use of these words for grades three and four.  Some older student struggle with advanced math concepts because of gaps in prerequisite foundation.  These words can be used for remediation with older students who need review.


 Math Words will eventually be available in eBook format.
