Focus in Grades 3-5: Teaching with Curriculum Focal Points

Focus in Grades 3-5 is part of a series that shows teachers how to incorporate NCTM's Curriculum Focal Points for PreK-8 into their current mathematics curricula. The book provides practical ideas, sample student work and a sample state math curricula organised around the focal points. By focusing more intensely on fewer topics at each grade level, students gain a deeper understanding of mathematical ideas. This volume will help teachers think about what a focused curriculum means and how they might begin to build focus into their existing curricula.
