I talked to the curriculum advisor at Joplin Public Schools this morning. I learned that of the 13 elementary schools in Joplin (k-5), 10 use a very traditional math approach called "Math 05"from the Houghton Mifflin Publishers. They do not use Investigations or Everyday Math at all in any of their schools. They are piloting a math curriculum and have been for the last 3 years in 3 of their 13 schools called "Math Expressions" from the Houghton Mifflin Publishers. It is almost identical to Scott Foresman (the old textbook that we got rid of last year). They DO NOT use Investigations or Everyday Math in any of their schools.
