New Elementary Mathematics Teacher's Manual is specially designed for teachers. It contains a scheme of work with a weekly schedule listing the objectives of each lesson. It has answers to the Class Activities, along with occasional notes which explain the purpose of the activity and provide teaching tips. The guide has answers, teaching suggestions, and detailed step-by-step solutions to the problems in the Challenger, Problem Solving, and Investigation sections. These solutions often include alternate solutions and suggestions to the teacher for follow-up activities. The solutions for the Problem Solving sections also include the strategy and thinking skills needed to solve the problem. New Elementary Mathematics Teacher's Manuals will eventually replace all the Teacher's Guides.
