The reviews below represent an analysis of curricular materials aligned to the Common Core State Standards. These reviews are intended only to provide support for corporations and should not be viewed as the only options for textbook adoption at the local level.

Textbooks were reviewed for alignment to two parts of the Common Core State Standards: the Standards for Mathematical Content and the Standards for Mathematical Practice. The review of content standards was conducted by Indiana teachers and educators, and the review of practice standards was conducted by the Charles A. Dana Center. To review comments made by either group, please download the PDF document in the appropriate column below.
