Starting a New School Year!!!

The 2016-2017 school year begins next week and we are busy getting ready. North Carolina revised the standards for Math 1, 2 and 3 so the past few weeks have been focused on getting the curriculum materials aligned. Math 1 has some changes but Math 2 and 3 had a lot.

I've been getting requests for our pacing guides and outcomes. They have been updated on the respective pages (Math 1 and Math 2).

For Math 3, a major concern is to make sure students do not experience gaps in concepts due to the movement of some standards out of Math 3 and into Math 2. For example, complex solutions to quadratic equations is now in Math 2. This year is a transition year in Math 3 and won't look the same as last year or next year. Therefore, we are not revising anything as much as we are "tweaking" some things. If you have questions about Math 3 please contact me and I'll share what we are doing. If there is enough interest I may post it here.

Okay, time to get started with the new year!!! Thanks for checking in.
