Summit Math is a student-centered curriculum that helps students learn at different paces.
Lightweight and easy to carry, each book in the series starts with simple, foundational concepts and builds on those ideas in small steps.
Written by a math teacher, these open-and-learn books are designed to make the learning experience better for both teachers and students.
Teachers like that the books help them facilitate cooperative learning in class.
Students like the feeling of accomplishment when they finish each book.
An Answer Key is included to give students immediate feedback when they finish each scenario.

“ Summit Math allows students to work at their own pace which allows me the opportunity to provide individualized attention to those who need it. The collaborative nature of the curriculum has students speaking the language of math while sharing ideas with their classmates. I love that previously learned concepts are continually reinforced throughout the curriculum, and that exercises are also provided for those who want to try a greater challenge.”
Less full-class lecturing. More 1-on-1 helping. Move around the room as students learn.
Differentiate instruction. Diverse students naturally learn at diverse paces. While students work through the scenarios in each book, their readiness can determine their pace.
Facilitate cooperative learning groups that enable students to share their ideas and expand their problem-solving strategies.

“ The Summit Math books are unlike typical textbooks. They allow students like myself to truly grasp the topics in each book. It doesn't matter how you learn or what speed you go at, these books are made so you can learn at your own pace while still understanding all the material. You have to make sure to check the answer key after each problem, try to figure out what you did right or wrong, and if needed, ask a teacher/peer for help. These books make learning math enjoyable.”
