Introducing Math Trailblazers 4th Edition
Math Trailblazers® 4th Edition is a coherent, research-based, K–5 mathematics curriculum that reflects the goals and ideas of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Principles and Standards for School Mathematics and aligns with the Common Core State Standards. Math Trailblazers maintains a careful balance between developing students’ conceptual understanding, procedural skills, and fluency with rigorous problem solving. Based on meaningful, real-world, problem-centered exercises, the program is designed to create an educational experience resulting in students who think flexibly about mathematics, see connections between the mathematics they learn in school and their everyday life experiences, enjoy mathematics, and have the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills required for future success. Math Trailblazers is based on more than 25 years of National Science Foundation funded research by experts at the Teaching Integrated Mathematics and Science (TIMS) Project and the Learning Sciences Research Institute of the University of Illinois at Chicago.
