We will be starting a new math curriculum unit on Tuesday of the coming week. As the state has changed to new standards (Common Core National Standards) and a new student evaluation model (Smarter Balance Assessments) we needed to locate new curriculum - especially in Math that would better align with the new models of instruction. A strong emphasis will be on not only basic math skills but problem solving skills. Homework will be coming home to practice individual content skills and problem solving skills.
I have made the corresponding adjustments to the curriculum section on my website under math unit 1 to reflect the changes in curriculum
Please remind you child to study for the upcoming Passport test on Tues. Oct. 1.
