Holt McDougal Mathematics Explorations in Core Math for Common Core
The Holt McDougal Mathematics Explorations in Core Math for Common Core is designed to provide a strong Common Core support for teachers implementing the new Common Core State Standards and can be used either while still teaching from existing secondary mathematics programs currently in use or on its own. Holt McDougal Mathematics Explorations in Core Math for Common Core covers the entire Common Core State Standards for each grade level. Unique lesson design helps focus students’ attention on the important Standards for Mathematical Practice, too.
Units in the Student Editions open with an introduction to the new Standards and Key Vocabulary in the Unpacking the Standards section. Guideddiscovery lessons help students develop conceptual understanding and include Essential Questions and Reflect prompts. Lessons are followed with scaffolded guided practice, and then additional independent Practice and Problem Solving, so that students master important skills and develop expertise in modeling with the mathematics. Every unit closes with three or four leveled Performance Tasks followed by an extended Problem Solving Connection modeling opportunity. Every unit concludes with a section of Assessment Readiness test preparation practice that features selected response, constructed response, and extended response items.
The Teacher’s Editions provide convenient professional development information that explains the Common Core Content Standards and the Standards for Mathematical Practice. Full teaching support is provided for every lesson, including notes for incorporating Teaching Strategies, helping students Avoid Common Errors, and making the Technology Connection. Lesson introductions include standards explanations, prerequisite skills, and important Math Background information. Questioning Strategies are included to use with lesson examples. Lessons close with a Summarize prompt. Highlighting the Standards strategies are often included to help teachers focus on the Standards for Mathematical Practice. As units close with Assessment Readiness, the Teacher’s Editions provide item correlations and item analyses for diagnosing student errors and useful for teaching testtaking strategies.
Meaningful Assessments
Holt McDougal Mathematics Explorations in Core Math for Common Core provides meaningful assessments to match instruction at the end of every unit. Leveled Performance Tasks serve as convenient authentic assessment tools and the Teacher’s Editions provide scoring rubrics. The next feature, Problem Solving Connections, may be used as an extended modeling activity or performance tasks. Every unit closes with a section of Assessment Readiness that features selected response, constructed response, and extended response items. The corresponding Teacher’s Editions pages provide item correlations and item analyses to help teachers diagnose student errors.
Comprehensive Teacher Guidance
The Holt McDougal Mathematics Explorations in Core Math for Common Core Student Editions provide a section of Unpacking the Standards at the beginning of every unit as a tool for explaining the goals and focus of the new Standards to students and their parents. Teacher’s Editions provide helpful teaching notes throughout the lesson teaching cycle. The Performance Assessment tasks at the end of every unit are leveled so that students may have universal access for assessment preparation.
Ease of Use and Accessibility for Teachers
The Holt McDougal Mathematics Explorations in Core Math for Common Core program makes it easy to incorporate new Common Core content and mathematical practices into existing curricula. The Student Editions provide full interactive lessons for all Standards and include meaningful assessments for every Unit. The Teacher’s Editions provide correlations, math background information, and teaching notes for every lesson. Helpful assessment tools are included for every Unit.

Response to Intervention
Holt McDougal Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 addresses Response to Intervention in high school math throughout the series through unique features like:
 Are You Ready?
 Ready to Go On?
 Questioning Strategies
 Success for Every Learner
 I.D.E.A. Works! Modified Worksheets and Tests
Are You Ready?
Are You Ready? provides direct instruction on scaffolded practice worksheets for students in need of help with basic skills review. Students log in and take an assessment that diagnoses and prescribes scaffolded intervention practice. Are You Ready? helps students in need of basic skill review and provides enrichment for those ready to move on. (Also available in print)
Ready to Go On?
Ready to Go On? is an online interactive prescriptive assessment that offers skill and problemsolving intervention practice to address student weaknesses before they are given summative tests, or enrichment for those ready to move on. (Also available in Print)
Questioning Strategies
Questioning Strategies includes questions designed to target the Standards for Mathematical Practice and develop depth of knowledge of the key concepts. Intervention is then recommended when needed throughout this resource.
Success for Every Learner
This resource provides alternate practice for each lesson, using a visual approach, and is ideal for English language learners as well as other students. Strategies for differentiated instruction are also included.
IDEA Works!
This teaching resource provides modified practice and problemsolving worksheets for every lesson and modified quizzes and tests for every chapter, along with flashcards, to support I.D.E.A. (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, an initiative guaranteeing that students with disabilities have the right to receive specially designed instruction).

Standards for Mathematical Practice
The Standards for Mathematical Practice are important processes and proficiencies that span all levels of mathematics. The eight practices covered in these standards stress the ability to not just “do” math, but to understand and explain the math.
Holt McDougal Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 have integrated these practices into student learning throughout the program to develop learners who can think outside of the box.
Persevere in Solving Problems
Holt McDougal's fourstep problemsolving plan guides students through the process of problem solving. At the beginning of each book, the problemsolving process is introduced, and practice appears throughout. Focus on Problem Solving features found in every chapter provide practice on this process and encourage students to apply what they have learned.
Reason Abstractly and Quantitatively
Think and Discuss appears at the end of every lesson or activity, prompting students to evaluate statements, explain relationships, apply mathematical principles, and justify their reasoning.
Critique the Reasoning of Others
What if?, Error Analysis, and Reasoning exercises demonstrate students' understanding of the application of mathematical principles and allow them to qualify their reasoning. Students are also prompted to show their deeper understanding of the mathematical structure.
Model with Math
Application exercises and Realworld Connections apply mathematics to other disciplines and in realworld scenarios.
Use Tools Strategically
Holt McDougal Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 have a variety of Handson Labs and Technology Labs that use concrete technology tools to explore mathematical concepts. The Graphing Calculator activities incorporate graphing technology into student learning.
Attend to Precision
Reading and Writing Math and Write About It exercises help students learn and use the language of math to communicate mathematics precisely.
Express Regularity in Repeated Reasoning and Make Use of Structure
Lesson examples group similar types of problems together, and the solutions are carefully stepped out. This allows students to make generalizations about—and notice variations in—the underlying structures.

Math for the Digital Learner
Holt McDougal Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 were created with today's students in mind. With a plethora of digital assets available for classroom instruction and for independent work, students stay actively engaged in their mathematics lessons, thus increasing retention and application outside the classroom.
