Attainment’s Hands-On Math Series uses the Concrete-Representational-Abstract (CRA) instructional strategy that progressively moves learning from concrete manipulatives to pictorial representations to abstract concepts. Lessons in the Hands-On Math Series provide outlined CRA teaching procedures for easy implementation. All three curricular resources—Hands-On Math for Early Numeracy Skills, Hands-On Math, and Hands-On Math 2—identify a lesson objective while also detailing both the Teacher setup and the Student procedure for each type of learner—concrete, representational, and abstract.
Follow a consistent lesson format across grade bands with the complete Hands-On Math Series. Start students with the Hands-On Math for Early Numeracy Skills to teach foundational math concepts like one-to-one correspondence, rote counting, patterns, and sets. For older students who struggle with early numeracy concepts or for students needing to move beyond the number 20, Hands-On Math reinforces basic counting skills while introducing two-digit addition problems and story problems, too. Lastly, Hands-On Math 2 begins where Hands-On Math leaves off and progresses to tackle tough concepts like integers and fractions. The series comes with three comprehensive kits, complete with Instructor’s Guides, consumable Student Workbooks, supplemental activities, number lines, and a box of hands-on manipulatives to help concrete learners develop a conceptual understanding in mathematics.
