Easy for Teachers
Clear and concise plans for teachers will reduce planning time. All materials are provided within each lesson, so there is no need to make copies, and daily warm-up problems are ready for the overhead or SmartBoard. Two "extra" pages are included in each day's lesson, and are perforated for easy removal.
Easily scored multiple choice pre-tests and post-tests provide records for student accountability. Formative assessment items are clearly designated, which saves time during class and eliminates the need for formal assessments. Teachers can help students immediately!
