The workbooks are your guide to presenting the concepts to students and are divided into 5 strands,

  • Arithmetic
  • Measurement
  • Problem Solving
  • Algebra
  • Calculus

and 5 levels,

  • Level 1
  • Level 2
  • Level 3
  • Level 4
  • Level 5

Each level contains 10 books of each strand.

The five math strands are much like the strands found in a rope which when woven together with each other make the rope stronger – students should work jointly in all strands rather than solely in one.

Plastic overlays can be used with dry erase markers to preserve the books themselves.


  1. I find the scope and sequence very helpful as a math tutor.
    Parents always want me to “help with math homework.”
    I take the books which cover what the student is working on, reteach what they didn’t understand in class, then have the student do some problems from the Mortensen Math textbooks.
    My students LOVE them.

    Yes. I use a page protector or with older students, just have them tell me the right answer.
