Linking AMC to Instruction
All AMC assessment results are linked to activities from the Developing Number Concepts series by Kathy Richardson
3 Part Series and Planning Guide
These books present a complete number curriculum for kindergarten through third grade classrooms. They are clearly written and each book provides simple but meaningful activities which give students repeated math experiences. These books present an approach based on years of research by the author on how children learn. They are a must for K-3 teachers of mathematics to meet the needs of all their students.

Assessing Math Concepts (AMC) is directly correlated to Developing Number Concepts. Kathy Richardson’s ground-breaking work presents teachers with a continuum of assessments that follows the stages of children’s development of math concepts so teachers can identify where children are in their development and provide appropriate instruction and practice.
AMC assessments are based on the premise that teachers will be able to provide more effective instruction and ensure maximum learning for all students when they (teachers) are aware of the steps children progress through as they are developing an understanding of foundational mathematical ideas.
