CA Textbook Adoption

May 4, 1999 10:20 AM


[Note: From Carol Bohlin and Drew Kravin  a nice database containing all the IMAP math textbook recommendations (and nonrecommendations) in it. The information below was copied/pasted . It isn't pretty, but you can probably make out the info. The "#" to the left refers to the number of the IMAP panel that evaluated the submission. Now you know which materials DIDN'T make it (at least so far!) ... Carol Bohlin.] ****************************************************** Further note, received just before sending this note out. PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
A member of IMAP #1, Sally Macy, alerted me that her panel had indeed *recommended* UCSMP Algebra I and that the list of IMAPrecommended math textbooks is in error when it says that this book was not approved. Mary Sprague of the California Dept. of Education confirmed this: "The summary sheet was incorrect initially for the grade 8 program (fortunately the panel report sent to the publisher correctly stated that the program is recommended). This has already been corrected on our copies and the copy that was sent to Commissioners on Tuesday. Please spread the word to others that both UCSMP programs are recommended by the IMAP and the CRP."
Therefore, Addison Wesley's UCSMP Algebra and UCSMP Transition Math were both approved by IMAP#1 (the latter textbook pending changes). Thanks to Sally for pointing this out and to Sheri Willebrand for contacting Mary to confirm it.  Carol Bohlin
****************************************************
Here is some new information regarding the IMAP math textbook recommendations from Sheri Willebrand, a member of the Curriculum Commission:
Carol: Thanks for keeping everyone informed...got some additional information...publishers that were "yes with changes" have been asked to submit their respective changes (different depending on the nature of "near misses") to CDE by May 12. If they do, there is a chance that they can "pass muster" and be voted on by the Curriculum Commission (CC) at the May 25  26 Mtg. They could then be considered by SBE at the June and July mtgs. This is good news since so few programs are in the "yes" and "yes, with changes" categories. Sheri, via Carol Bohlin
