What’s Included

Available in Print & Digital Formats

Student Materials

Strong coherence throughout materials is visible in the mathematics that students interact with regularly while also being clearly articulated in the Course and Unit overviews. Instructional routines and Jump Starts engage students in the content of the lesson and promote meaningful dialogue.

Teacher Materials

Overarching guidance and embedded alignment is provided to highlight the Effective Teaching Practices (NCTM, 2014) and the CCSSM Standards for Mathematical Practice. Selecting, sequencing, and connecting charts guide teachers in using and advancing student thinking to reach lesson goals.
