AMME and Math Standards
The Principals and Standards for School Mathematics assembled by the NCTM in 2000 are comprised of five Content Standards and five Process Standards. Wisconsin’s Model of Academic Standards adopted in 1998 are very closely aligned with the NCTM’s national math standards.
The following chart displays how the NCTM National Math Standards and Wisconsin’s Model of Academic Standards are aligned.

What People Are Saying
This material is excellent!
This material is excellent! I teach students with Learning Disabilities and because you have provided a lot of hands-on labs and easy step-by-step instructions, my students have been successful.
Tina H. Marshall, Lumpkin County High School, GA
We are having real success with the upper classmen that were on their last legs to pass a math class before they can graduate.

What a treat!
I love this stuff. What a treat! They don’t ask ‘When are we going to use this stuff?’ Parents like, it, too.

AMME Gives Hope
What I have found is AMME gives hope to students who perceive themselves as not being able to do math. It takes the steps simply and understandably for any student. I’m hoping to keep teaching the AMME curriculum. I really do love it.
I Really Liked the Curriculum...
I used the AMME program for several years for 9th-12th graders and was very pleased with it. Students in the AMME track did almost as well as students in the Algebra track on the state-wide math proficiency test given in the 10th grade… As a teacher, I really liked the curriculum – it was easy to get into and fun to do the lessons; it was easy to write a lesson plan for; the kids had fun and they learned something.
Students with Learning Disabilities
“This material is excellent. I teach students with Learning Disabilities and because you have provided a lot of hands on labs and easy step by step instructions my students have been successful. I think this material would be an excellent market for students with Disabilities. Just something to think about.”
