Based upon the Singapore method of teaching mathematics, Math in Focus features a problem-based approach that builds on a concrete-to-pictorial-to-abstract progression. Within each grade fewer topics are taught, but at a more in-depth level; visual representations, modeling strategies, and a development of conceptual understanding, place value, and computation fluency help students to understand the "how" behind their exercises. The consumable student workbooks provide practice, assessment, and skill-development exercises. In the textbooks, cheery illustrations and easy-to-understand lessons give kids a fun atmosphere to work in. Examples are provided alongside helpful representations and explanatory text; fun games, hands-on activities, math journal, "put on your thinking cap", chapter wrap-up, and review/ test exercises are also included. The first semester of fourth grade (4A) helps children work on place value; estimation & number theory; whole number multiplication & division; tables & line graphs; data & probability; fractions; and mixed numbers. The second semester (4B) covers adding & subtracting decimals; angles; line segments; squares & rectangles; area & perimeter; symmetry; and tessellations.
