SUMMIT MATH

AT

SCHOOL

Summit Math is a student-centered curriculum that helps students learn at different paces.

Lightweight and easy to carry, each book in the series starts with simple, foundational concepts and builds on those ideas in small steps.

Written by a math teacher, these open-and-learn books are designed to make the learning experience better for both teachers and students.

Teachers like that the books help them facilitate cooperative learning in class.

Students like the feeling of accomplishment when they finish each book.

An Answer Key is included to give students immediate feedback when they finish each scenario.

Students can receive additional support with a subscription to teaching videos, which provide step-by-step instruction for every scenario in the Guided Discovery section of each book.

 Summit Math allows students to work at their own pace which allows me the opportunity to provide individualized attention to those who need it.  The collaborative nature of the curriculum has students speaking the language of math while sharing ideas with their classmates.   I love that previously learned concepts are continually reinforced throughout the curriculum, and that exercises are also provided for those who want to try a greater challenge.

 The Summit Math books are unlike typical textbooks. They allow students like myself to truly grasp the topics in each book. It doesn't matter how you learn or what speed you go at, these books are made so you can learn at your own pace while still understanding all the material. You have to make sure to check the answer key after each problem, try to figure out what you did right or wrong, and if needed, ask a teacher/peer for help. These books make learning math enjoyable.

BENEFITS FOR

TEACHERS 

Less full-class lecturing = More 1-on-1 helping.  Move around the room as students learn.

​​​

Differentiate instruction.  Diverse students naturally learn at diverse paces.  While students work through the scenarios in each book, their readiness can determine their pace.

Facilitate cooperative learning groups. When students share their ideas, the teacher is no longer the only person students can go to for help.

​​

New to teaching?  The books arrange topics in a logical order.  Use them to plan your lessons.

​​

The class size can feel smaller, because some students may need minimal guidance.

The books spiral back to previous content, making students look back as they move forward.

BENEFITS FOR

STUDENTS 

Students can learn math at different paces and work in groups to learn with other students.

​​​

Students enjoy a sense of accomplishment ​when they finish each book, because each series is a set of lightweight, easy-to-carry, paperback workbooks.

The books spiral back to previous topics, incorporating review as students move forward.

Students who need extra help can get 1-on-1 help from their teacher or work through their classmates to resolve confusion.

Students write in the books, reducing the challenge of taking notes while listening to the teacher.

​​

​​Some students can learn each topic without additional guidance from a teacher.

LEARNING MATH THROUGH GUIDED DISCOVERY

Guided Discovery is designed to help you experience a sense of discovery as you learn each new topic.

WHY THIS CURRICULUM IS NAMED SUMMIT MATH

Learning through Guided Discovery can be compared to climbing a mountain.  Climbing and learning both require effort and persistence.  In both activities, people naturally move at different paces, but they can reach the summit if they keep moving forward.  Whether you race rapidly through these books or step slowly through each scenario, this curriculum is designed to keep advancing your learning until you reach the end of the book.

GUIDED DISCOVERY SCENARIOS

The Guided Discovery Scenarios in each book are written and arranged to show you that new math concepts are related to previous concepts you have already learned.  Try to fully understand each scenario before moving on to the next one.  To do this, try the scenario on your own first, check your answer when you finish, and then fix any mistakes, if needed.  Making mistakes and struggling are essential parts of the learning process.

HOMEWORK & EXTRA PRACTICE SCENARIOS

After you complete the scenarios in each Guided Discovery section, you may think you know those topics well, but over time, you will forget what you have learned.  Extra practice will help you develop better retention of each topic.  Use the Homework and Extra Practice Scenarios to improve your understanding and to increase your ability to retain what you have learned.

THE ANSWER KEY

The Answer Key is included to promote learning.  When you finish a scenario, you can get immediate feedback.  When the Answer Key is not enough to help you fully understand a scenario, you should try to get additional guidance from another student or a teacher.
