We have a new website coming for backtoschool!
It will have a new look, better search, and other
improvements we know you’re going to love.
We’re also making it easier for you to log in with a simple
new process that we’ll be emailing you about shortly.
So stay tuned. Exciting updates are headed your way!
Scholastic® MATH Meets
Common Core State Standards
Scholastic MATH features motivating, skillbuilding activities that show students timely realworld applications of middle school math curricula and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Subscriptions include a Teacher’s Guide, which features a chart that describes how each article correlates with the standards; teaching tips; extension activities; and an answer key for all print and online activities. Digital editions of each issue can be used with iPads®, interactive whiteboards, projectors, and classroom computers.
The following chart illustrates how Scholastic MATH meets the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, grades 68:

Ratios and Proportional Relationships
(standards 6.RP and 7.RP)  The Number System (standards 6.NS, 7.NS, and 8.NS)

Expressions and Equations
(standards 6.EE, 7.EE, and 8.EE)

Geometry
(standards 6.G, 7.G, and 8.G)  Statistics and Probability (standards 6.SP, 7.SP, and 8.SP)
 Functions (standard 8.F)
