See series description for full review.

This guide for the Primary Math 5B textbook and workbook is designed to help teachers understand the course material, see how each section fits in with the curriculum as a whole, and prepare the day's lesson. The course material is divided into 72 sessions. These sessions can be combined, if necessary, to finish the curriculum by the end of the semester, by spending less time on class participation or discussion, or not having as many problems for practice during class time.

This guide can be used with both the U.S. edition and the third edition of Primary Mathematics. U.S. conventions and spellings are used in this guide, such as using commas for thousands and colons for time, and not using "and" in writing out whole numbers in words. However, any items specific to either edition, such as different answers, different page numbers, and different exercise numbers, are clearly indicated.

This guide schedules reviews as blocks of several successive sessions. However, you can have a review session every week instead, using selected problems from the textbook and workbook review exercises.
