This year (2014-2015), my school district went through the math adoption process. During the adoption, it became clear that we had to make a decision:
1. Adopt a cruddy math curriculum, but at least it has a Spanish translation
2. Adopt an excellent math curriculum that does not yet have a Spanish translation
We chose Option 2 because we believed that during the 8-year adoption cycle the lack of a Spanish translation would eventually be rectified. While Option 1 offered little hope that the cruddy math curriculum could ever be fixed.
As a result, we selected Eureka Math and our decision has paid off!
As awesome a curriculum as Eureka Math (aka EngageNY) might be, a small, but significant drawback is its lack of a Spanish translation. Well, this problem is slowly getting fixed.
A number of school districts have taken the initiative to translate all or some of Eureka Math (EngageNY) into Spanish. As I come across these wonderful school districts, I'm organizing their translations here. It is not as smooth and professional looking as a big-box publisher could do, but at least it is a start and least our students will be experiencing a great math program (albeit in English for the time being).
