Asking on behalf a member of the Educents Facebook community..
Are these books using Common Core or normal math?

Asked by a Super-hero on July 14th, 2016


Thanks for your email. Our books are created by authors who love math. They are written to engage kids and have no agenda. There are a wide variety of math topics in each book.

Much of the content fits with both the NSF Math Standards and the Common Core, but that is because there is so much content in each book. If you look at our Articulations of Curriculum Standards document, you can see each standard that is covered in all of our books. That will help give you an idea of the breadth of the content.

Sorry for the delay in answering your question. Please let us know if you have any more questions!

Thanks for your interest in our books! :)

    I bought these for my 4th grader. They encourage him to think about different possibilities to answer the question and to really THINK about the scenario. They also require my son to weed out some of the given information and focus on what is needed to solve the problem.

    I love that these are short one page mysteries that you can read to your child at night. I read them to my very gifted six year old, sometime he solves them and sometimes he doesn't. They always start a conversation and give me an opportunity to understand his current concepts of the world and tweak them. I would highly recommend these.

    I ordered these books for my gifted second grader at home and potentially to use in my second grade classroom. I think the math is more advanced than my class, but the science will be fun and useful.

    I purchased this books over the summer. I love the short stories and plan to use them as an introductory to class lessons & possibly for homework assignments. I look forward to watching my students act like scientist to figure out these science mysteries!
