How to Teach the Course
LightUnit Study Method
Math LightUnit 401 reviews concepts that should be adequately mastered in order to succeed in Math 400. It can be used as a diagnostic tool.
The remaining LightUnits introduce new skills and concepts in increments, while continuously reviewing earlier material. The metric system is taught simultaneously with the U.S. system of measurement.
Daily flash-card exercises and speed drills cement the basic number facts into the child’s memory. Along with general fourth-grade math skills such as long division and fractions and decimals, a foundation for later geometry and algebra is laid in gentle, painless steps.
LightUnit themes used in story problems take students around the world from Italy to Australia to a Navajo reservation in New Mexico to a science station on Antarctica.
Textbook Study Method (Alternative Course)
Now this time-tested math program is also available in a full-color textbook. The format and appearance are new, but we have kept the incremental approach to learning and the same scope and sequence as the LightUnits.
This course includes a hardcover textbook that is attractively and professionally formatted with colorful pictures and illustrations. It uses the same learning approach as LightUnits: spiral, incremental learning, continuous review.
The Teacher’s Guide is full-color, and includes reproductions of all textbook pages with answers.
The Full Solution Answer Key shows each problem with its solution for the textbook, quizzes, and tests.
The Student Pack includes consumable quizzes, tests, and daily speed/mastery drills.
