## Assessing Math Concepts, a continuum of nine assessments that focuses on important

related Critical Learning Phases that must be in place if children are to understand an
mathematics. These assessments help teachers to assess their students and give them
information they need to plan their instruction regardless of what curriculum or progra
their classroom. The information teachers get can be used to guide their instruction an
students who need extra help or intervention.

It is widely recognized that too many middle and high school students have gaps in the
understandings that interfere with their ability to be successful as they move into algeb
those who have been successful in elementary math are not successful in later years, r
ability to get right answers does not ensure an understanding of the underlying mathe
going to prepare students for future success, they must have a greater understanding
foundational concepts that determine success or failure in the long run.

This set of nine assessments identifies Critical Learning Phases that are crucial to the u
concepts. The information teachers get about each of their students from these simple
assessments provide them with information that is more important to their math instru
assessment they'll use and answers the questions:
"What are the foundational mathematical ideas children need to know?"
"How can teachers know the children are learning these important ideas?"
"What do teachers do if the children are not learning what they need to know?"
