Summary of Alignment & Usability for Everyday Mathematics 4 | Math
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.
