Elementary Math Program

Cheryl Fotter
K-5 Math Coordinator


Everyday Math is the K-5 core math program. It is a structured, rigorous, and proven program that helps students learn mathematical reasoning and develop strong math skills. The curriculum was developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project to offer students a broad background in mathematics:

  • A problem solving approach based on everyday situations
  • Frequent practice of basic skills
  • An instructional approach that revisits concepts regularly
  • A curriculum that explores mathematical content beyond basic arithmetic
