    Investigations is a complete K-5 mathematics curriculum, developed at TERC in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It is designed to help all children understand fundamental ideas of number and operations, geometry, data, measurement and early algebra. We are currently using the Common Core Edition for the Investigations program.

     

    Investigations in Number, Data, and Space is based on:

    Goals and guiding principles about teaching and learning mathematics, including... 

    • What has been learned from developing and supporting the implementation of the curriculum over the course of 18 years
    • Collaboration with over 100 classroom teachers from a variety of settings in field testing the curriculum; this field testing involved documentation of thousands of hours in classrooms, observations of students, input from teachers, and analysis of student work
    • An extensive body of research about how children learn best
