Everyday Math originated from the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project and has been implemented at thousands of schools around the country. An important component of the curriculum is the application of math skills to real-world situations in which students may find themselves.
In addition, students develop applicable skills, by asking questions about particular concepts before a teacher actually begins teaching the concept. This approach helps students build context and understanding of why their mathematical skills are valuable to them.
Everyday Math will be used in conjunction with internationally-recognized elementary mathematics curricula from the home countries of the instruction language.
