The textbook materials within this site were created in response to the Math Materials Access Improvement solicitation issued by the Utah State Office of Education in June of 2012. Hugo Rossi is the Principal Investigator for the work with Maggie Cummings and David Wiley serving as Co-Principal Investigators. The materials are a collaborative work with contributors from University of Utah, Utah State University, Snow College, and Weber State College; Jordan, Granite, Davis and Salt Lake City School districts; and many teachers throughout Utah. In particular, we would like to acknowledge the work of:

Mathematical Foundation Lead Writers:

Within this site you will find textbook materials written specifically for the Utah Core Standards for both 7th will find a foundational text for each chapter describing the mathematics students will be learning, a student workbook that has daily classroom activities and homework sets, and a teacher edition of the student workbook that has answers to problems sets and lesson suggestions. During the coming year, while these materials are being pilot tested, we will create supplementary materials, including videos, a “help-desk”, glossaries, and an online adaptive assessment.

      Yes there are answer keys to all the materials on the teacher page, though they are password protected. Teachers may email me directly for more information.
