In addition, the material does not identify or relate grade level concepts explicitly to prior grade knowledge. Furthermore, the materials do not provide students of varying abilities extensive work with grade-level problems. Overall, the instructional materials reviewed do not meet the expectations for alignment to the CCSSM.
