The primary pedagogical premise of Symphony Math is that many students struggle with mathematics because they do no have an in-depth understanding of the big ideas of mathematics. Symphony Math is designed to provide students with understanding of the most important math concepts. Research has shown that an in-depth understanding of these big ideas of math leads to improved performance on a variety of math topics. Your students should continue to be taught all of the topics and benchmarks they are required to know. Concurrently they can receive extra practice with Symphony Math on some of the most important and difficult-to-master foundational concepts.
