    After reading the previous post, I'm going to help you a whole lot!

    Avoid Saxon math at all costs! I haven't used Everyday Math, but I do know it is considered a standards-based math curriculum and Saxon is something else. Standards-based means that it meets all the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics standards and principles. Much time and research has gone into compiling methods and strategies aligned with the way students learn math best.

    Even though I have not used Everyday Math, I do use a stadards-based curriculum with my 4th and 5th graders. I love it! I consider myself a math person, but I can't even begin to explain how much I've learned about the way I think about and teach math.

    Lina, I have used Terc - Investigations and Kendall-Hunt - Trailblazers. I am involved in a math improvement initiative in our state. I would be very interested in hearing what you and your fellow teachers think about the Everyday Math program. What grade levels are involved in this pilot program? Anything else you could tell me about your experiences would be of interest to me and my colleagues in our math study.
