Origo Stepping Stones

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) call for three shifts in the approach to teaching mathematics: a greater focus on fewer topics; more coherence of topics across grades; and increased rigor in math instruction. In addition to CCSS standards and teacher provided supports, Albuquerque Public Schools has elected to utilize Origo Stepping Stones curriculum Grades K-5 to help students develop conceptual understanding and provide a better balance of the three aspects of rigor: mathematical understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application.


Stepping Stones offers a unique and comprehensive mathematics curriculum that combines print and digital materials, builds conceptual understanding through rigorous problem-solving activities, and supports computational fluency with strategies and practice.
