Math K-8 Summary of Alignment & Usability

The instructional materials for Spider Learning Mathematics Grades 6-8 do not meet expectations for focus and coherence in Gateway 1. While the materials include content viable for one school year, and there are some connections between supporting and major work of the grade, they do not focus on grade level content and attend to the major work of the grade. They do not meet expectations for coherence as they are not coherent with the progressions of the standards, do not present opportunities for students to engage with extensive work with grade-level problems, and do not foster connections where appropriate and called for by the Standards.  Since the materials do not meet expectations for Gateway 1, they were not reviewed for Gateway 2 or Gateway 3.
