Does this program avoid prematureMULTIPLICATIONof 2 or 3 digits by 1 or 2 digits? |
USUALLY 6 problems require this skill using decimals before Chapter 10 teaches it. |
YES | YES | NO 47 problems require this skill before Chapter 20 teaches it. |
USUALLY 9 problems require this skill before Chapter 23 teaches it. |
NO 20 problems require this skill before Chapter 9 teaches a "partial products" method. |
NO 39 problems require this skill before Chapter 14 teaches it. |
NO Students first invent "strategies." Non-standard "algorithms" are introduced later. |
