Materials Analysis Tools

Curriculum Analysis Tool and Professional Development Materials

Initially lead by Bill Bush at the University of Louisville with representation from NCSM, NCTM, and AMTE, this project developed tools for assessing the potential of curriculum materials to support students’ attainment of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics, including the Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMPs) and/or other State standards. The project was initiated at the request of Council of Chief State School Officers with additional funding from the Brookhill Foundation, and Texas Instruments. The tools are designed to provide educators with objective measures and information to guide their selection of curriculum materials based on evidence of the materials’ ability to support learning for each and every student. Evidence gathered includes analysis of mathematical content development, SMPs, equity, assessment, and technology.
