Math-U-See is a mastery approach designed to teach students specific skills that build as the student progresses. This systematic and cumulative approach uses a definite, logical sequence of concept instruction. The Math-U-See system is structured with step-by-step procedures for introducing, reviewing, practicing, and mastering concepts. Each lesson teaches using multi-sensory tools such as videos, manipulatives, and other resources, designed to appeal to any type of learner.
Math-U-See teaches more than just how to solve a math problem; it also teaches why the problem is solved in this manner, and when to apply the concept. It is essential for a student to memorize basic facts and formulas, but the actual understanding comes from learning the concepts first, memorizing facts and formulas, and applying this to solving everyday life situations or word problems.
