The Foundational Math Curriculum was developed as a CUNY stand-alone supplementary unit and focuses on building foundational skills that SIFE need to access mathematical content. This curriculum is focused on teaching students to connect mathematical content to their everyday lives and uses primarily a traditional mini-lesson structure followed by student collaborative work in heterogeneous small groups. This curriculum teaches basic numeracy skills using the four operations and includes problem solving strategies that allow students to develop success with word problems. This is an especially good curriculum to start with SIFE who need additional support in learning basic mathematical skills and concepts. If students need lessons at this level, this curriculum is recommended for the beginning of the year. This curriculum additionally offers virtual materials for many of the lessons to support students who are learning virtually.
