Mathematics Textbooks Placed on 30-Day Public Review

The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District has undertaken an extensive review of mathematics textbook programs in Kindergarten through Algebra II.   Over 140 teachers have been examining the materials and piloting them in their classrooms since September.  As a result of this review, a recommendation was made to the Board of Education at the February 10th board meeting to place the following textbooks on a 30-day public display.  These materials are now on display at the Professional Development Center at 4999 Casa Loma Avenue in Yorba Linda.

  • K-5 -  Houghton Mifflin Harcourt – California Math Expressions
  • 6-8 – Big Ideas Learning/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt – Big Ideas Math
  • High School – Big Ideas Learning/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt – Big Ideas Math

Interested parents are welcome to stop by the Professional Development Center any time during business hours (8:30 am – 4:30 pm) to review these materials.
