I recently changed districts and my new district uses this math curriculum. I taught HSP Math 11 years and am struggling with the change. The teacher's edition isn't very clear to me as it seems very bare on instruction as far as steps and timing. Any tips to mastering this new way of teaching will be greatly appreciated.

has a lot of great ideas for teaching the why and how of math. But I'm guessing the books don't spell things out really well, and frankly, you really have to see it in action to really appreciate it.

Is there any chance you can get to a Singapore Math conference, or get any district PD?

We have used Math in Focus for 8 years. I donít like it. Itís not really Singapore Math, but a poor substitute. The lessons are poorly instructed and confusing. I supplement a lot, which is a lot of work. I didnít order workbooks this year. I have enough material to just use that.
