can progress at different paces, or you can individualize and
have everyone at their own level. It may be best to have the entire class on the same lesson.
- If you have either a student very far behind or a very advanced student, you can order an Individual Student Set for any grade level you need.
the class is having trouble with a concept, take an extra day to work

the lessons, than to push and frustrate them.
- Consider using our Projectable Lessons on the white board or screen. This helps students to focus on the lesson and to see how the solutions are determined.
- Have one grade level
work on another subject while you go through the second group's math lesson using the resources in your Teacher Edition while the students focus on the Lesson section of their Lesson Sheets:
- After both lessons have been taught, the students
can all work on Guided Practice (raising their hands when they need assistance) while you help those needing individual attention:
method is to teach both lessons to both levels.
the class is on the Guided Practice, have the new student only
do the problems with which they are familiar.
the first few weeks, teach them the concepts that are new to them
they are of average ability or better, they will catch
up to the class.
- If a new student is too far behind, that child may have to
go back to the beginning of the year and work through every lesson.
students finish their work ahead of the others, they can put extra effort into subject areas where they
are not as strong, or use the time for enrichment activities or
answers correct as you see them while students work on their Lesson
Sheets during Guided Practice.
