# An introduction to mathematics.

The Primer level is an introduction to “doing math.” The emphasis of the Primer level is not for the students to demonstrate mastery of concepts and skills but to become familiar with them and ease into formal learning. Students will learn how to write numerals and basic counting. Additionally, students will be introduced to addition and subtraction, skip counting, geometric shapes, and telling time. They will become familiar with the Math-U-See Manipulatives and develop a positive attitude towards learning math.

# What do I need?

#### To successfully complete the Primer level, you will need:

• Instruction Manual — includes detailed instructions and solutions
• Instructional lesson videos — on DVDs and streaming within the Primer Digital Pack
• Student Workbook — includes Lesson Practice, Systematic Review, and Application and Enrichment worksheets
• Integer Block Kit
