Everyday Mathematics reflects the state and national goals for mathematics and includes these features:
A curriculum that explores mathematical content beyond basic arithmetic
A problem-solving approach based on everyday situations
Frequent, varied practice of basic skills
An instructional approach that revisits concepts regularly
An emphasis on communication and teamwork
A commitment to home/school partnerships
In the past few decades, there has been a tremendous increase in the importance of mathematics in the workplace and daily life. In order to succeed in this information- and technology-oriented environment, our children need to learn a range of sophisticated mathematical knowledge that extends far beyond basic calculation skills. Everyday Mathematics is a program that will prepare children for the future and enable them to achieve at high levels.
