Help students to build problem-solving and math communication skills which are key areas in the NCTM Standards, using high-interest lessons that gradually move from short, focused activities to extended investigations. This NSF Funded Program offers well-planned units to give younger students a head start on grasping key concepts of collecting, recording, displaying, interpreting data, and making decisions based on their analysis. Each book contains a unit that requires approximately 15 class sessions to complete. The lessons offer work with real-life topics, and students are encouraged to find solutions and make decisions as a team. The primary level books emphasize the building blocks of data analysis, which include counting, measuring, sorting, and classifying. The upper-grade books focus on statistics and graphing using real data and real-life problem-solving situations.
