    • Common Core

      On Core Mathematics is an innovative, instructional solution that develops students' understanding of the Common Core State Standards in an interactive format, while integrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice. Students actively participate in lessons that use clear, stepped-out models and incorporate manipulatives when appropriate, to develop a deeper understanding of the mathematics.

      Each lesson includes opportunities for understanding and practice. Practice focuses on helping students master both Standards for Mathematical Practice and includes opportunities for real-world problem solving. Problem solving is integrated into every lesson as well as in special problem-solving lessons. Problem-solving lessons help students pull together concepts and skills and apply them to real-world situations. Reflect questions challenge students to think about the mathematics that they are studying and share their understanding with the class.
