Are you interested in CGI math? CGI Math was created by Megan Franke. She is THE CGI Guru from UCLA (my Alma Mater)!!

First, it's not a curriculum. It's more an approach to teaching math.

It’s about teaching the standards, not a curriculum.

I created it because I needed something that my kids could do every day to improve their skills, build their number sense, look good projected and incorporate ideas from CGI math.

Here is what this contains:

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.
Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
Understand a fraction 𝘢/𝘣 with 𝘢 > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/𝘣.
Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.
Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
