Everyday Math

The Everyday Mathematics (EM4) program is the district-adopted curriculum and is based on Common Core State Standards.  Developed by The University of Chicago School Mathematics Project, the Everyday Mathematics spiral curriculum continually reinforces abstract math concepts through concrete real-world applications.  The students love the challenging and interactive nature of the program!
