The focus of the early chapters in McDougal Littell Math Course 1 is on numbers, their operations, and their algebraic representations. Students will build their understanding of these concepts through a variety of models, such as base-ten pieces, rulers, and verbal models. They will also apply their skills to problem-solving situations and use estimation to check reasonableness. Topics from other math strands, such as measurement conversions, area, averages, and data displays, are introduced early in the course and then integrated and expanded upon throughout. Later chapters in McDougal Littell Math Course 1 include topics such as integers, functions, and probability. The number and variety of problems, ranging from basic to challenging, give students the practice they need to develop their math skills. Every lesson in McDougal Littell Math Course 1 has both skill practice and problem solving, including multi-step problems. These types of problems often appear on standardized tests and cover a wide variety of math topics. To help students prepare for standardized tests, McDougal Littell Math Course 1 provides instruction and practice on standardized test questions in a variety of formats – multiple choice, short response, extended response, and so on.
