Math K-8 Summary of Alignment & Usability

The materials reviewed do not meet the expectations for alignment to the Common Core State Standards.  The materials assess minimal grade appropriate topics. Approximately 20% of the content focuses on the major work. There is minimal supporting work enhancing the understanding of the major work in the standards.  It would take more than 190 days to complete each course. The mathematics progression for the series is based on the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Curriculum Focal Points instead of the CCSSM. Since the material does not meet the alignment standards for focus or coherence, it was not reviewed for rigor and the math practices.
