K-6: Everyday Mathematics

Everyday Mathematics introduces children to all the major mathematical content domains – number sense, algebra, measurement, geometry, data analysis and probability – beginning in Kindergarten.  The program helps teachers move beyond basic arithmetic and nurture higher order and critical thinking skills in their students, using everyday, real-world problems and situations – while also building and maintaining basic skills, including automatic fact recall.

The Everyday Mathematics program features a spiraling curriculum in which mathematical content is taught in a repeated fashion, beginning with concrete experiences.  Children learn best when new topics are presented briskly and in an interesting way.  Most children will not master a new topic the first time it is presented, so Everyday Mathematics allows children to revisit content in varied contexts, integrating new learning with previous knowledge.  Everyday Mathematics periodically reviews, practices, and applies newly learned concepts and skills in wide variety of contexts.
