I'm so sorry for the inconvenience you and your students have gone through! But to answer your question...Yes and NO...I was invited to a state conference for math..and it was about MARS...I researched MARS..and the outcome was that the materials that our state is receiving from MARS and Nottingham University, England is donated by the Bill Gates Foundation. After saying that...I have been researching Common Core since it was pushed on us since 2008... and have found that it slows the students thinking process down.. anyway...the materials are to advanced for the childrens grade/s. "They" have recalibrated each grade by pushing the grade above into the grade below...plus "THEY" have stated that "now" the teachers will not have to focus on teaching as many skills....which I haven't seem that materialize yet!...Plus..England & Sweden national grade rating has tumbled....and both countries are scrambling to survive the outcome!
