WELCOME TO MRS. KEESMATH CLASS EDUCATING, INSPIRING AND EMPOWERING THINKERS AND PROBLEM SOLVERSCLICK MOVING SLIDES TWICE TO ADVANCE(once to freeze)1What is Math in Focus?Math in Focus provides an authentic Singapore math curriculumhighlighting problem solving as the focus of mathematical learning. This complete program teaches concepts using a concretepictorialabstract learning progression to anchor learning in real-world, hands-on experiences.What is Math in Focus?Math in Focus is especially strong in developing conceptual understanding. It does not try to teach every concept every year. Instead, it focuses on fewer topics but teaches them thoroughly so they need not be re-taught and reviewed continually each year.

A major focus is upon preparing students for success in algebra. Consequently, algebraic thinking and expressions are introduced early and used frequently throughout the series.

What is Math in Focus?*Supports the goals of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics*Research-based pedagogy focuses on classroom learning, discussion, and practice*Balances conceptual understanding, visual learning, and problem solving
