We do solemnly publish and declare: 4 new sets of Lesson Materials

In celebration of the upcoming July 4th holiday, we declare the independence of 4 new sets of Lesson Materials!  (They're published, is what I'm saying.)  These Lesson Materials now aspire to life, liberty, and the pursuit of conceptual understanding.  Have a look:

Dividing Fractions Gizmo

Estimating Sums and Differences Gizmo

Percents and Proportions Gizmo

Proportions and Common Multipliers Gizmo

All of our updated Lesson Materials have 4 documents (Student Exploration Sheet, Answer Key, Teacher Guide, and Vocabulary Sheet), each available as a .doc (for easy editing) or a .pdf (for smaller filesize). You will need to be logged in to see all four documents.

This brings us up to 39 math Gizmos with updated Lesson Materials.  Check them out - our goal as always is to guide students toward real understanding of the math concepts, not just rote practice.  (You might even say that we hold the importance of conceptual understanding to be self-evident!)
