Math Meeting about the future of the High School Math Curriculum – Wed Dec 17, 2014

The below-listed meeting took place earlier in the week:
Wednesday (12/17) 6:30 – 7:45 ARHS Library

The purpose of this meeting is for parents/guardians to see potential math course sequences (Integrated or Traditional) and course names for grades 9 – 12. Parents/guardians will be asked to provide comments for the ARHS math department.

Parents interested in the math curriculum at the high school level: There will be a math meeting Wed Dec 17th re: new high school curriculum/course sequence, 6:30 at the High School Library.
It’s our understanding that it may be the only opportunity for parents to weigh in on a whole new pathway for ARHS math. The current program is being replaced.

Brief summary of current math curriculum: The current high school math curriculum has 2 main paths (Traditional and Integrated Math; this looks like Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 vs IMP 1, IMP 2, IMP 3). The plan for the new high school curriculum is to narrow it down to one path (Traditional or Integrated but not both) and pick a curriculum that will teach the common core standards, starting in 2015-2016 for 9th graders (meaning the current 8th graders will be the first to experience the new curriculum).
