The Big Ideas Math program balances conceptual understanding with procedural skill and fluency, as research shows that students learn best from equal exposure to discovery learning and scaffolded instruction. The authors took rigor—conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and real-life applications—very seriously while developing the program, including learning progression resources and correlation to Seventh-day Adventist math standards.
