Combining the most powerful elements of reform mathematics with the best of traditional approaches, Math Expressions helps students build mathematical ideas that make sense to them.
Content and Learning Progressions
Math Expressions Common Core focuses on the priority core concepts at each grade level, identified by the Common Core State Standards, to build in-depth understanding of major mathematical ideas. The Standards for Mathematical Practice are incorporated into all of the lessons in the Math Expressions program.
In Math Expressions, teachers create an inquiry environment and encourage constructive discussion. Students invent, question, model, represent and explore but also learn and practice important math strategies. Mathematics content and models connect and build across the grade levels in Math Expressions to provide a progression of teaching and learning that aligns precisely with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.
Every Math Expressions lesson includes intervention, on-level, and challenge differentiation to support classroom needs. Leveled Math Writing Prompts provide opportunities for in-depth thinking and analysis, and help prepare students for high-stakes tests. Support for English Language Learners is included in each lesson.
