Students Master the Foundations of Math with New Program
By Brandstar Entertainment
Pompano Beach, FL (PRBuzz.com) May 2, 2012 -- Big Ideas Learning LLC, creators of instructional materials that provide a coherent mathematics curriculum, recently completed their shoot for Brandstar Entertainment's hit morning TV show "The Balancing Act." The segment, which features Dr. Ron Larson from Big Ideas, and Adell Atwood consultant for the Association for Middle Level Education (AMLE), will air in May as part of the show's "Parent-Teacher Corner" series on Lifetime Television.
During the episode, Dr. Larson, who created the Big Ideas Math middle school program, will discuss with viewers the importance of students mastering the foundations of Math at each level. The Big Ideas Math program was written specifically to support the new Common Core Standards for mathematics so students across the country learn the same information.
The goal of their middle school program is to provide a narrower and deeper source of study for students while focusing on fewer topics. This approach allows students to master each benchmark as they move from grade to grade.
"Until now, the United States has not had a national curriculum. Now, however, the federal government is supporting a common mathematics curriculum. 46 states are onboard. Viewers of "The Balancing Act" on Lifetime Television can look at a new textbook series for that common curriculum in middle school," says mathematics textbook author, Dr. Ron Larson.
