State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson Announces Adoption
of First Mathematics Materials Aligned to the Common Core

SACRAMENTO—School districts now have a list of more than 30 instructional materials to choose from that are aligned to the Common Core State Standards for mathematics, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today.

This comes after the State Board of Education completed the 2014 adoption of kindergarten through grade eight mathematics materials for California students. The list is attached.

"Today's step keeps us on track toward our goal of providing students the real- world skills they will need for college and career, in part through the Common Core," Torlakson said. "These quality materials will help students achieve the proficiency in mathematics that California's employers are looking for from this future workforce."

Of the 35 instructional materials programs submitted for consideration from 17 publishers, the State Board of Education approved 31. Of these, 20 were Basic Grade-level programs, 10 were Algebra 1 programs, and one was an Integrated Mathematics 1 program.

Local school districts can now begin their own process of reviewing the materials to determine which of the adopted programs best meet the needs of their students. With such a wide variety of choices, including a number of technology-based programs, districts can tailor an instructional program that will help their students achieve academically. Districts may use some of the $1.25 billion in Common Core State Standards Implementation Funds to purchase the materials.

The adopted programs are on display for public review at Learning Resources Display Centers across the state. For more information about the 2014 Mathematics Adoption process, visit the California Department of Education Mathematics Instructional Materials Web page.
