A Look at Current Trends in the Elementary and Secondary School Mathematics Market

Schools have debated the best ways to instruct students in mathematics for decades. With the move to more rigorous standards and the growing acceptance of digital programs, this research was initiated on the use of mathematics instructional materials during the 2015-2016 school year.

K-12 Mathematics Market Report 2016 looks at current trends in the elementary and secondary school mathematics market including what products are used most widely and the selection criteria educators use to help them choose one product over another.

For the report, this publisher partnered with MCH Strategic Data on survey directed to mathematics educators at their schools in October 2015. The report is built around the survey results with ongoing research providing added context to the analysis and commentary.

In addition to reporting survey answers in total, the report contains lengthy appendices that break down answers by the grade level responsibilities of survey participants, for the four largest states and by adoption states versus open territories, This data can help mathematics product developers and marketers pinpoint their best opportunities.

K-12 Mathematics Market Report 2016 is a continuation of a publication series originally offered by Education Market Research, an acquired property. Where relevant, results are compared with the findings from earlier reports.

The report provides timely information about:

  • Penetration of specific programs, by titles, being used in classrooms
  • Satisfaction levels with programs being used
  • Whether digital resources are replacing print
  • Whether schools are integrating math into a unified STEM curriculum
  • Whether new math standards have led to new assessments

This report is valuable to providers of mathematics and/or STEM curriculum, including print textbooks, etextbooks, online courses and supplementary materials. Investment and M&A professionals looking to understand areas of potential growth and where opportunities exist for new solutions also will find valuable information.
