Math Expressions combines elements of standards-based instruction with the best traditional approaches. Through drawings, conceptual language, and real-world examples, it helps students make sense of mathematics.  A dynamic hands-on, visual approach—a progression from concrete to pictorial to abstract or the algorithm is used to introduce concepts, which at the core include strong number sense, place value, and problem solving. This includes an in-depth learning of concepts and skills as well as fluency with word problems, math drawings, and algorithms.  This program focuses on the priority core concepts at each grade level to build in-depth understanding of major mathematical ideas. The Standards for Mathematical Practice are incorporated into all of the lessons. 

Here are some fun resources for your child to practice at home:
