Math High School Summary of Alignment & Usability

The instructional materials reviewed for the Walch Integrated series partially meet the expectations for Alignment to the CCSSM. The materials partially meet the expectations for Focus and Coherence as they show strengths in: attending to the full intent of the mathematical content for all students; spending the majority of time on content widely applicable as prerequisites; and making meaningful connections in a single course and throughout the series. The materials partially meet the expectations for Rigor and Mathematical Practices as they partially meet the expectations for Rigor and Balance and partially meet the expectations for Practice-Content Connections. Within Rigor and Balance, the materials did show strengths with providing students opportunities for developing procedural skills and working with applications, and within Practice-Content Connections, the materials showed strengths in developing overarching, mathematical practices (MPs 1 and 6). Since the materials did not meet expectations for Alignment to the CCSSM, evidence concerning Usability was not collected for the series.
