"I will be recommending Everyday Mathematics along with Singapore as a supplement to the Student Learning Committee this afternoon. It will be introduced on May 16th with a final vote scheduled for a special Board meeting on May 30. Beth, these are excellent materials with a balance of concept building mathematics along with computation practice. The Singapore supplement will also provide a foundation for fluency. (basic facts and algorithms)"If you are interested in this discussion and able to attend the Student Learning Committee meeting this afternoon (4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Stanford Center), please post comments on this thread about what you hear and learn.
