Getting Started contains simple and engaging problems to get your students started in practicing behaviors (communication, representation, and reasoning) to create a positive learning environment essential to deepening students' understanding of concepts.
RMU is designed to help middle-grades students gain a deeper understanding of important mathematics topics. Each unit features topics developed through problem solving; concepts developed over time; problems that invite communication among students leading to critical thinking; problems that help students make connections among topics; and labs for more intense study. Each unit includes teacher notes, blackline student masters, and suggested assessments. Use RMU as the basis for a curriculum program or to complement your current program. Choose topics according to your students' needs.
