Scott Foresman Math supporters say it is colorful and keeps things relevant. Others point out that the layout is distracting, and the culturally relevant stories take away from explanations of the math itself. Basic concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are taught at a notably slower pace than other curricula, with children as late as fourth grade still being encouraged to use a number line for one digit addition and subtraction in some editions.
Besides math, Scott Foresman also offers many popular school subjects including language, ESL, art and handwriting. D’nealian handwriting offers a unique alternative to traditional manuscript and cursive handwriting approaches.
