Math HS Summary of Alignment & Usability

The instructional materials reviewed for the Glencoe Traditional series partially meet expectations for Alignment to the CCSSM. The materials partially meet expectations for Focus and Coherence as they show strengths in: attending to the full intent of the mathematical content for all students; spending the majority of time on content widely applicable as prerequisites; and allowing students to fully learn each standard. The materials partially meet expectations for Rigor and Mathematical Practices as they meet expectations for Rigor and Balance and partially meet expectations for Practice-Content Connections. Within Rigor and Balance, students independently demonstrate each of the three aspects of Rigor, and within Practice-Content Connections, the materials intentionally develop reasoning and explaining (MPs 2 and 3) and seeing structure and generalizing (MPs 7 and 8).
