The program was rated as ‘Exemplary’ on alignment to the CCSS in both Mathematical Content and Mathematical Practices. The program was additionally rated as ‘Exemplifying Quality’ in all four review sections.
“Ready and i-Ready Common Core Mathematics’ unique blended approach provides teachers with the rich data needed to individualize instruction, improve learning outcomes, and ensure students are college and career ready,” said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates. “As a privately-held publisher, we remain laser-focused on our mission to improve classrooms for all. After years of hard work and continuous improvement, I’m proud our team is delivering materials deserving of this perfect rating.”
Ready Common Core Mathematics emphasizes conceptual understanding through reasoning, modeling, and discussion that explores the structure of mathematics while also developing students’ procedural fluency. The program uses a research-based instructional model that balances conceptual understanding and procedural fluency to build confidence and mastery of the Common Core Math Standards.
i-Ready Diagnostic & Instruction combines a diagnostic measure and personalized instruction in a single online product.The adaptive diagnostic for grades K–12 pinpoints student needs down to the sub-skill level and generates a combination of online instruction and downloadable teacher-led lessons that are unique to each student’s diagnostic result.
