Effective math curriculums aligned to Common Core?

I'm searching for a math curriculum (aside from Everyday Math) that is aligned to the common core standards, or at least closely aligned.

      I think your best bet will be to study CC standards carefully, and then align the curriculum yourself. I say this because oftentimes publishers will say things are aligned, but if you unpack the standard, you realize they are grasping.

      Most curriculum will have a supplemental CC alignment page. Study it, and determine for yourself if/how/where the curriculum matches.

        I highly recommend the Connected Math series if you're teaching in a grade school. And then College Prep Math series if you're teaching middle to high school. Others may disagree but their approach to the acquisition of a standard is compliant with the thinking rationale behind the common core. The only drawback is that approach means alot of collaborative teaming by students through study teams.
