K-5 MATH ADOPTION NEWS
Posted March 12, 2015
After an extensive Math pilot process and review involving 34 teachers, two publishers and spanning all grade levels ,(including multi-age classes and Spanish Immersion) the Math Committee voted unanimously to propose the adoption of Math Expressions by publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt as the new MPCSD Common Core Curriculum for Grades K-5.  There is a strong articulation between Math Expressions Common Core and Big Ideas Math (the recently adopted curriculum at Hillview Grades 6-8) creating a seamless K–8 experience which will allow teachers and students to easily transition from the world of elementary school math to middle school math.

At the March 10 Board meeting a Math Expressions presentation was made and members were provided with supplemental material about the curriculum. The decision to adopt Math Expressions will go to the Board for action on April 14, 2015.

Math Expressions materials for this proposed adoption Grades K-5 are on display in the small conference room at the District Office for public review until April 14. In addition, if you would like to preview this material on line please follow these directions:
