Math K-8 Summary of Alignment & Usability

The instructional materials reviewed for Everyday Mathematics 4, Kindergarten through Grade 2, partially meet expectations for alignment. The assessments for Kindergarten through Grade 2 address grade-level standards, and the materials devote at least 65% of class time to major clusters of the grade. The materials are also consistent and coherent with the progressions in the Standards. The materials for Kindergarten through Grade 2 partially meet expectations for Gateway 2, rigor and mathematical practices. The lessons attend to conceptual understanding and procedural skills, and there is balance among the three aspects of rigor. The Standards for Mathematical Practice (MPs) are identified and used to enrich the mathematics content, but the materials do not present students with opportunities to engage with the full intent of MP5, choose tools strategically.

The instructional materials reviewed for Everyday Mathematics 4, Grade 3 through Grade 6, partially meet the expectations for alignment. The assessments for Grades 3 through 5 address grade-level standards, the materials for Grades 3 through 5 devote at least 65% of class time to major clusters of the grade. The materials for Grades 3 through 6 are coherent and consistent with the progressions in the Standards. The materials for Grade 3 through Grade 6 partially meet expectations for Gateway 2, rigor and mathematical practices. The lessons include conceptual understanding and procedural skills and fluency, and there is balance among the three aspects of rigor. The Standards for Mathematical Practice (MPs) are identified and used to enrich the mathematics content, but the materials do not present students with opportunities to engage with the full intent of MP5, choose tools strategically.
