MathLinks was developed to provide students with a conceptual understanding of middle school mathematics. Mathematics educators, mathematicians, and experts in teaching students combined best practices and research to create the programs.

“Our students and teachers love the programs. The teacher lesson information makes the lesson planning easy. The students love working through their packets.  I’m enjoying their (students) conversations and discussions.”

Laura Deans, RSP Math Teacher

“My class is made up of students with learning disabilities who cannot make it in a general education setting due to pace, rigor, and disability. I love these packets as I can tailor the pace of the lesson to the needs of the students and the rigor is still high. On the state test this year, my RSP 8th grade math students received the highest points on the test when compared to other RSP math students in similar school districts in the area. I have to think that the MathLinks curriculum, though started later in the year, aided in the success of my students on the test.”

James Schierer, Teacher at King City USD

“As a high school math teacher I have noticed that the students who have used Math Links came in better prepared to start the year. They also were able to fall back on alternate strategies learned in Math Links to help them continue with their work.”

Shala Zeidan, Teacher

“The professional development increased my self confidence about [transformational] geometry. It won’t be as hard as I thought it was going to be for me or my students. Thank you.”

Kerry McFarland, Math Teacher at Buckeye USD

“I have used the supplementary unit Proportional Relationships for two years now. The rich problems engage students of all abilities, challenging all by the need to use multiple methods. I find it to be a cohesive unit that nicely ties together ratios, rates, proportionality, and direct variation, with special attention to the language of CCSS-M.”

Stephanie Fox, Teacher 

“Students don’t lose the MathLinks packets and I have seen a huge percent increase in homework completion.”

7th Grade Student, Buena Park Junior High School

“I like the packets because I am more organized and do not lose the papers. The work seems easy too.”

Esther Taylor, RSP Math Teacher in Los Angeles

Thank you for a great year of Math Links training.  It has been very helpful and informative.  I appreciate the professional and also personable presentations.  The practice of the hands on activities has been insightful and enjoyable.”
