Choosing a Standards-Based Mathematics Curriculum

Full Description: 

This guide describes a process for considering and reviewing standards-based mathematics programs and raises questions and issues for readers to consider in their own processes. The guide addresses curriculum selection and implementation and offers ideas to help districts work through both of these phases. Our focus for the selection phase is on assembling a selection committee, assessing resources and needs, and creating guidelines and criteria for evaluating different programs. The curriculum implementation section focuses on ways districts can work toward successful use of the materials they have purchased--planning a realistic and effective roll-out strategy, supporting teachers, and building community buy-in and assistance.
