Review Documents and Tools

How does a department, school, or district decide on a math program? Before a review process begins, all shareholders should inform the team what they would like to see in a math curriculum and what they expect from the program. CPM recommends the Instructional Materials Evaluation Tool (IMET) for mathematics and the Materials Analysis Tools by NCSM as starting points.


Achieve the Core has created an Instructional Materials Evaluation Tool, the IMET. Download the Instructional Materials Evaluation Tool for mathematics.

NCSM and NCTM have partnered to create a tool for evaluating curriculum. View the Materials Analysis Tools by NCSM to view a webinar about their Curriculum Materials Analysis Tool, read about the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Mathematics Curriculum Materials Analysis Project, and to download the tool.
