Math High School Summary of Alignment & Usability

The materials reviewed for Walch CCSS Integrated Math Series partially meet the expectations for Alignment to the CCSSM. The materials meet 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 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, working with applications, and balancing the three aspects of Rigor, and within Practice-Content Connections, the materials showed strengths in developing overarching, mathematical practices (MPs 1 and 6) and reasoning and explaining (MPs 2 and 3).
