Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's (HMH) Common Core aligned mathematics program, GO Math!, has been selected by the New York City Department of Education as a recommended curriculum for grades K-5. As one of the elementary math programs endorsed, GO Math! will be used widely throughout the district, which serves about 1.1 million students in over 1,800 schools, in classrooms starting this fall.

Lessons begin with concrete, context-based situations and, through the use of models, math talk, sample questions and other tools, progress toward more abstract problems.

New York City is the first and largest urban school district to recommend Common Core aligned curricula for use in its schools. The Department of Education conducted a review of numerous programs in order to select the highest quality materials for endorsement. Using the "Publishers' Criteria," a set of guidelines intended to aid curriculum developers in aligning materials to the Common Core, teacher-leaders from across the city worked with central staff to evaluate a wide array of programs.

GO Math! received the top scores on the Publishers' Criteria rubric. Based upon feedback from the New York City Department of Education's review, HMH is now working closely with district administrators on specialized GO Math! program components that directly support the unique curriculum needs of New York City's students and teachers, including performance tasks at each grade-level with scoring rubrics and samples of student work for teachers to reference.
