We do Everyday Mathematics K through 6. However, this year we had a small
group of students who had completed all 7 levels by 6th grade so we have
those students taking the new version of Transition Mathematics. We went
back and forth on wether to do the 6th grade EDM program or not. Last
year we tried Math Thematics book 1. The kids hated it. By the first
week in October we gave the regular 6th grade class the end of the year
test for Math Thematics and every single kid except the one special ed.
child scored 75 or higher. So we went back to EDM grade 6 to finish that
year out. We are one of those rare schools that finishes every lesson at
every grade level of EDM so we are trying to seek out a textbook program
that can follow grade 5 EDM to prepare the students for 7th grade for
working out of a textbook.
Our other two elem schools in the district are using either EDM Grade 6,
Mathematics Book 1 or Transition Mathematics.
