Content Reading: Mathematics develops reading skills as it explains a wide variety of mathematics topics and their relationship to everyday life. Using abundant samples and illustrations, the nonfiction articles encourage students to draw on prior knowledge and help them acquire a deeper understanding of mathematics.
- Each level features in-depth articles that focus on grade-appropriate areas of mathematics, from basic addition and subtraction to calculating money and working through algebra and geometry problems.
- Each level includes a glossary of content-specific words.
- The consistent question format allows you to identify students’ weaknesses in order to target instruction. Comprehension skills are tested in the same order every time: factual detail, main idea, inference, sequence, cause/effect or fact opinion (level G), and content vocabulary. The last question is open ended to encourage higher-order thinking and writing.
