Canadian Math LightUnit 201 can be used as a diagnostic tool. It reviews concepts that should be adequately mastered in Level 100 in order to succeed in Level 200. The remaining nine LightUnits guide learning in new skills and concepts such as telling time, reading simple graphs, adding/subtracting multi-digit numbers with carrying/borrowing, working with Canadian currency, basic fraction concepts, and measurement in both the U.S. and metric systems.
Canadian spellings are used throughout this course. Daily review on the addition/subtraction facts from 1-20 ensures continued mastery.
Multiplication is introduced in Math 206, and by the end of the course, students have memorized the tables for 0, 1, 2, 5, and 10.
Each lesson contains a realistic story problem or two on a theme (which varies with each LightUnit) such as pets, grandparents, and springtime.
The Teacher’s Guidebooks are comprehensive and easy to follow. LightUnit answers are included in the teacher's guides, along with useful tips and alternate LightUnit tests.
