Math K-8 Summary of Alignment & Usability

The instructional materials for Earlybird Kindergarten Mathematics Common Core Edition and Primary Mathematics Common Core Edition Grades 1-2 do not meet expectations for alignment to the CCSSM. In Gateway 1, the instructional materials for Kindergarten meet the expectations for focus as they assess grade-level standards and devote at least 65% of instructional time to the major work of the grade, but the instructional materials for Grades 1-2 do not meet the expectations for focus. For coherence, the instructional materials for Grades 1-2 are partially coherent and consistent with the Standards. The instructional materials for Grades 1-2 have an amount of content designated for one grade level that is viable for one school year, but the materials partially meet expectations for the remainder of the indicators within coherence. The instructional materials for Kindergarten are not coherent and consistent with the Standards. The materials for Kindergarten were reviewed for rigor and the mathematical practices in Gateway 2, but the Kindergarten materials do not meet expectations for either of those criteria. Since the materials do not meet expectations for alignment to the CCSSM, they were not reviewed for usability in Gateway 3.

The instructional materials for Primary Mathematics Common Core Edition Grades 3-5 do not meet expectations for alignment to the CCSSM. In Gateway 1, the instructional materials do not meet the expectations for focus as they assess above-grade-level standards and devote less than 65% of instructional time to the major work of the grade. For coherence, the instructional materials are partially coherent and consistent with the Standards. The instructional materials have an amount of content designated for one grade level that is viable for one school year, but the materials partially meet expectations for the remainder of the indicators within coherence. Since the materials do not meet the expectations for focus and coherence in Gateway 1, they were not reviewed for rigor and the mathematical practices in Gateway 2 or usability in Gateway 3.
