Math in Focus®(MIF) is a problem solving, hands on curriculum originally taught in Singapore. MIF develops a conceptual understanding of numbers. This is accomplished by moving from the concrete to pictorial to abstract. Concrete learning is introduced through hands-on activities. These include manipulatives already known to students such as counters, coins and number lines. Pictorial learning helps students to illustrate the concept with pictures, drawings (bar models) and workbook pages. The abstract stage is the way students practice with numbers and symbols.
