Grade 6-8: Illustrative Math

Grade 6-8 Family Resources

In August 2017, Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) began the process of evaluating and piloting new math instructional materials for sixth through eighth grade. Through the seven month teacher-driven pilot process, teachers and staff identified Illustrative Mathematics as the comprehensive set of sixth through eighth grade math instructional materials for NMUSD students which was approved by the Board of Education on June 12, 2018.

Illustrative Mathematics materials are available for public review on the 
Kendall Hunt website.

 

The Illustrative Mathematics (IM) high school materials are available through three IM certified publishers. All publishers provide the same Illustrative Mathematics content. While this link makes the content available for viewing through Kendall Hunt, we are working with staff to determine which publisher will best meet the needs of the NMUSD students and staff. Illustrative Mathematics Materials for Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II
