What is Everyday Mathematics?

Everyday Mathematics is a comprehensive Pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade mathematics curriculum embracing many of the traditional goals of school mathematics as well as two ambitious goals for the 21st century:
To substantially raise expectations regarding the amount and range of mathematics that children can learn;
To support educators and children with the materials necessary to enable the children to meet these higher expectations.
Everyday Mathematics was developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project based on research about how students learn and develop mathematical power. The Everyday Mathematics program is a problem-solving approach based on everyday situations that build on student interest and connect to their experiences. An important piece to the Everyday Mathematics program is the spiral approach that revisits concepts regularly. Mastery is developed over time. Lessons are based on activities and discussions. Students are encouraged to solve problems in multiple ways, creating flexibility of thinking. There is frequent practice of basic skills, often through mathematical games, but the focus is on understanding the concepts behind the basic facts, as well as mastery of the facts. Students receive instruction in all major areas of mathematics: number sense, data analysis, geometry, measurement, algebra, and probability.
