TIMS Elementary Mathematics Curriculum Project(K-6) is a manipulative-based mathematics curriculum with active involvement in solving real problems with significant hands-on, collaborative project experiences in science and language arts. The teacher is encouraged to facilitate mathematical communication, both orally and in writing. TIMS Steps precede and guide every activity providing cross-curricular connections L.A., Science, and Math. Contact: Howard Goldberg and Phil Wagreich
