To teach Mortensen Math you need #1 the method, #2 manipulatives, #3 exercise books & manual
If budget is a challenge, the essential is to learn the method by, for example, the Teacher's Handbook.
You can make base ten tiles out of a cereal box and do examples from a school textbook or out of your head,
but you must have the method. Buy the book, attend a workshop, study videos to glean the principles,
but you can't teach Mortensen Math without knowing the method. For more, see Comparing Methods

Description of MM Program & Materials
The Mortensen "more than Math" Program
consists of 200 exercise books defined
in Five strands:
This can only be approximate as curricula vary from district to district and many do not include some topics at particular grades. The table above is shown only as a guide to purchasing materials. All arithmetic is covered before grade 9 for example, and yes we have "Kindergarten Calculus!"
The books are numbered but, nothing in Book One Level One Algebra indicates the Student's intended age, thus it may be used with teenagers or adults as readily as with elementary aged pupils depending on their ability.
The exercise books increase in difficulty incrementally as the numbers grow higher. Once a student has done all 210 exercise books she will have covered the entire school curriculum in mathematics as prescribed by most school districts. Some variations are inevitable as the program is used throughout North America from Florida to Alaska in Australia and in Europe, by independent schools and in Public Schools with adult learners and in Montessori Pre-schools.
