  For Parents of Investigations in Number, Data, and Space Users

  • Pearson and Family Education Networks - This website provides a wealth of material to help parents understand the concepts behind Pearson's Investigations in Number, Data, and Space and Connected Mathematics programs. It also includes videos from teachers and students addressing the questions that are on many parents' minds, including a section on ways to help their children at home.
  • Investigations in Number, Data, and Space is a research-based, child- centered approach to teaching mathematics through engaging activities, discussions, and problem solving. Students are involved in meaningful mathematical problems, and teachers engage in ongoing learning about mathematics content and how children learn mathematics. The curriculum at each grade level is organized into units that offer from two to eight weeks of work focused on a particular content strand. These units link together with ongoing review to form a complete K-5 curriculum that offers differentiation based on each individual student's needs. Triangle Coalition member, Pearson, is a global leader in educational publishing, assessment, information, and services. More details are at www.pearsoned.com.
