Consultants and Reviewers

Leaps and Bounds Toward Math Understanding is a comprehensive resource that provides diagnostic tools and remediation/intervention lessons for students who are struggling in Grades 1 to 8 mathematics in all five strands. The approach used in Leaps and Bounds respects what we know about how students learn by sequencing the content in a developmentally appropriate way and providing alternatives in approach that allow for differentiated instruction.

Leaps and Bounds has a solid research foundation that reflects the following:

  • Developmental learning of mathematics, as determined from the PRIME research;
  • Recognized common areas of difficulty in mathematics that students have, and research in best instructional practices for addressing these areas of difficulty; and
  • Current research around how to support students who are struggling in math; in particular, addressing both different learning styles and alternative strategies for learning a mathematical concept.
