Almost all high-school and adult learners are in need of review, remediation, and reinforcement of basic skills in mathematics before they can tackle high-school equivalency exams and/or seek meaningful employment. To help these learners get up to speed, we' re pleased to introduce Steck-VaughnŽ Fundamental Skills, a comprehensive and flexible series that will enable you to deliver instruction tailored to the specific needs of each learner.
This program offers skills development targeted to Literacy (Readability Levels K-1), Beginning (Levels 2-3) and Intermediate (Levels 4-5) while also being age-appropriate for adult learners. Print workbooks organized by key content-area topics progress through the literacy levels described above.
Features and Benefits:
Fundamental Skills for Math consists of eleven modules:
