Bridging the Gap to Common Core Math

How will you bridge the gap between your current math curriculum and the Common Core Standards? Excel Math can increase the rigor and mathematical practices of your math lessons without breaking your budget!

The Excel Math Common Core Teacher Editions walk you through the new vocabulary and Common Core standards (CCS) while giving you the tools you need to help students make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. New math activities for kindergarten through sixth grade encourage critical thinking skills. Discussion suggestions and open-ended questions let you lead your students to construct viable arguments, think critically, explain their reasoning, and respond to their classmates' thinking. You become the facilitator for class discussions, helping your students discover alternate problem-solving methods.

Excel Math has been proven to get results when used as a supplement or in a core position. Read more and download a Scientifically Based Research Report showing how Excel Math increases student test scores across all grade levels.

At AnsMar Publishers, we are committed to helping our  customers make a smooth transition to CCS with Excel Math. You can view Excel Math Common Core correlations for Kindergarten through Grade 6 here: www.excelmath.com/downloads/state_stds.html

We are in the very early stages of creating our new Excel Math Common Core Teacher Editions. When each one is released, we will have an announcement on our website. Our goal is to have as many grades ready by fall 2013 as possible (focusing on grades 2-5 first, and then grades K-1 and 6). Our student lesson sheets are updated and are now shipping.
