Welcome back, teachers! We hope you’re feeling recharged and ready to be on this journey in exciting, real-world math. This year, we’ve pulled out all the stops to create a magazine that will have students clamoring for more math. What’s more, we listened to math teachers from across the country to develop new features that help address with teachers’ most pressing challenges.
New leveled problem sets and Homework Helpers
Beginning with our September 2016 issue, we took a grade-specific approach to our 4-page feature articles. In our problem sets you can find questions in red for grade 3, blue for grade 4, and green for grade 5.
In our digital issue, our 4-page features now include leveled Homework Helpers. Click on the Homework Helper buttons for a grade-specific math explanation and an example problem.
Check out the multiplication homework helpers we have for our story about a puppetry museum in Georgia, that’s working to repair more than 100 of Jim Henson’s famous characters:

Opportunities for connecting to foundational and advanced skills
A leveled progression of math problems can benefit your advanced students. They might need help making connections between the foundational skills they already know and the math they’re learning in the classroom.
We offer more activities to connect to foundational or advanced math skills in Teacher’s Guide. There you’ll find an “Application and Differentiation” section in the lesson plans for 4-page features.
Every feature includes leveled reading options
Because the reading skills vary between students, we’ve created leveled text for our feature articles. Simply click on the blue “level” button in the digital issue to access lower-level text. Click on the button again and you’re back to the content that’s in the print issue.
Keep the comments coming!
Just like your students, we’re always learning. We would love to know how our leveled resources are working for you and your students. You can email me anytime.
Above all, we hope our magazine will continue to evolve with your math classroom needs.
