Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.
K-12 Mathematics Market Report 2016Schools 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, Simba Information initiated research on the use of K-12 mathematics education resources during the 2015-2016 school year.
Simba Information's report, K-12 Mathematics Market Report 2016, looks at current trends in the elementary and secondary school mathematics market including what K-12 mathematics education resources are used most widely, as well as the selection criteria educators use to help them choose one product over another.
For K-12 Mathematics Market Report 2016, Simba 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 Simba Information’s ongoing research providing added context to the analysis and commentary on the current K-12 market for mathematics education resources.
In addition to reporting survey answers in total, K-12 Mathematics Market Report 2016 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 K-12 mathematics education resources developers and marketers pinpoint their best opportunities.
