- The Patterns in Arithmetic series teaches for understanding using a discovery and inductive approach.
- Circle Math is our unique way of teaching arithmetic and specifically regrouping. It is the process of breaking up a large problem into many small problems, solving each small problem, and adding the results.
- The student is guided to find patterns and generalize those patterns in to working knowledge of how procedures work and why they work that way.
- Parents are guided though a series of lessons that give sample dialogues that a teacher might have with a student who is learning.
