Dear North Carolina Educators and Colleagues,

As a fellow North Carolina educator, I realize how important state standards are to our mathematics curriculum. That is why I have taken a special interest in the development of the North Carolina Edition of Houghton Mifflin Math. My fellow authors and I have created a new mathematics program that will not only help you meet North Carolina Standards, but will help you meet the needs of all learners in your classroom.

Here are some of the highlights of Houghton Mifflin Math, the North Carolina Edition:

  • All of the North Carolina Standards are fully addressed and clearly referenced within our Student Book.
  • Our CD-ROM Lesson Planner is a timesaving tool that enables you to adjust the sequence of instruction to match your county's Pacing Guides.
  • Plenty of practice and problem solving situations are built into the lessons so that your students can develop the skills and concepts they need to be successful in mathematics.
  • Proven mathematical models help you effectively teach your lessons to all students including your lowest performing students.
  • A research base of more than 30 years gives our program validity, efficacy, and a strong track record.

It is a great pleasure to be able to share with you a proven program like Houghton Mifflin Math. It is math instruction that is just right for North Carolina!
