Mercer Island Adopts Math Expressions k-5

Last night the Mercer Island School Board unanimously approved the adoption of Math Expressions for K-5, and additionally obtained agreement by the publisher to put the Student and Teachers Editions on line.

The text was recommended by the Math Review Committee, comprising 6 administrators, 7 parents, and 14 teachers (K-12). It met since September with extensive discussion, and with a rule that an 80% vote was required for decisions, including adoption recommendations.
