    Everyday Math

    Our district has been using EM for 3 years now; I fortunately came in the year that they introduced it, and my student teaching had been in a classroom with EM too. I like it a lot, for the problem solving strategies emphasis and for the games, which my kids enjoy. I also like the Explorations, which are hands-on activities to introduce new topics or explore topics further; they're interspersed in each unit. I would agree with the other that said it's a lot of work the first year to introduce the new methods, but it does get easier.

    It is a little more difficult for students not strong in reading, as there is a little more language involved than some other math series.
