About The Series

The Oregon Focus on Math© Series was written by six Oregon teachers to provide Oregon middle school teachers with curriculum that is directly aligned to the 2007 Oregon Core Standards. Most national publishers offer math textbooks to Oregon teachers that are written to national standards causing the texts to often exceed 700 pages in length. The Oregon Focus on Math© Series is unique in that it focuses solely on what students and teachers are held accountable for in Oregon. Each of the nine books in the series address one core standard while including pre-requisite and connection lessons.

The Oregon Department of Education provides 19 criteria for Grade 6-8 math instructional materials. The information provided to ODE on how the Oregon Focus on Math© Series meets these criteria can be read here
