The pedagogy and mathematical content of the program are consistent with both the Common Core State Standards and the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics published by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). The units are organized by strand: Number, Geometry and Measurement, Algebra, and Data Analysis and Probability. The rich mathematics in MiC is developed using realistic contexts to engage and motivate students, and the mathematical models help insure retention by using various modes of representation.
