Math K-8 Summary of Alignment & Usability

The instructional materials reviewed for Kindergarten and Grade 1 meet the expectations for focus and coherence in Gateway 1. The materials in both grades meet the expectation for focus as they assess grade-level topics and spend the majority of class time on major work of the grade. The materials for Kindergarten and Grade 1 are also coherent and consistent with the Standards. The materials for Kindergarten and Grade 1 do not meet expectations for rigor and the mathematical practices (MPs) in Gateway 2. The materials partially meet the expectations for rigor as they develop conceptual understand and procedural fluency, and even though the materials identify and use the MPs to enrich the mathematical content, the materials do not meet the expectations for the MPs.

Grade 2 materials are currently under revision by the publisher. EdReports will re-review and publish the grade-level report upon the completion of the materials revision.

The instructional materials reviewed for Grade 4 and Grade 5 meet the expectations for focus and coherence in Gateway 1. The materials in both grades meet the expectation for focus as they assess grade-level topics and spend the majority of class time on major work of the grade. The materials for Grade 4 and Grade 5 are also coherent and consistent with the Standards. The materials for Grade 4 and Grade 5 do not meet expectations for rigor and the mathematical practices (MPs) in Gateway 2. The materials partially meet the expectations for rigor as they develop conceptual understand and procedural fluency, and even though the materials identify and use the MPs to enrich the mathematical content, the materials do not meet the expectations for the MPs.

Grade 3 materials are currently under revision by the publisher. EdReports will re-review and publish the grade-level report upon the completion of the materials revision.

The instructional materials reviewed for Grades 6-8 meet the expectations for focus and coherence in Gateway 1. The materials for all three grades meet the expectations for focus as they assess grade-level topics and spend the majority of class time on major work of the grade, and the instructional materials for all three grades meet the expectations for being coherent and consistent with the Standards. The materials for all three grades do not meet the expectations for rigor and the mathematical practices (MPs) in Gateway 2. The materials partially meet the expectations for rigor as they develop conceptual understanding and procedural skill and fluency, and even though the materials identify and use the MPs to enrich the mathematical content, the materials do not meet the expectations for the MPs.
