Popular Math Text Found Unaligned to Common Core

By Liana Loewus — May 10, 2016 1 min read

The most recent round of textbook reviews from EdReports.org show that Everyday Math, which is used in about 200,000 classrooms around the country, does not meet the expectations of the Common Core State Standards.

The newest reviews were released last week. Everyday Math, a particularly popular K-6 math program developed by the University of Chicago, did not meet the expectations for alignment at any grade level. Publisher McGraw-Hill called the review “incomplete, inaccurate, and misleading.”

EdReports.org also found that Math Innovations, a middle school curriculum by Kendall Hunt, did not meet expectations. Stepping Stones, by Origo Education, partially met expectations at some grade levels.

Bridges in Mathematics performed quite well: The K-5 materials were found to be both aligned to the common core and easy to use at all grade levels.
