At BESD 53 we are very proud to offer two math programs that emphasize problem solving and higher level thinking. Everyday Math (K-5) and Connected Math (6-8) have been developed with the financial support and research of the National Science Foundation (NSF) as well as the math departments of the University of Chicago and Michigan State University.

You can find helpful parent information as well as resources to help your child with Everyday Math (K-5) in the sections on the left side of this page. We have also added links below to parent information for each unit in Connected Math (Grades 6-8). These provide specific information about the learning targets for the units as well as specific examples from the unit so you can help your child to reach proficiency and beyond.
