The Everyday Mathematics program is celebrating over 20 years of research and development and offering schools results unmatched by any other elementary mathematics program. This results-oriented program is the program of choice for nearly 3 million students in the United States alone. Everyday Mathematics was developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project (UCSMP) in conjunction with feedback from education specialists, administrators, and classroom teachers in order to enable children in elementary grades to learn more mathematical content and become life-long mathematical thinkers.
