Due to changes in the math curriculum, the high school mathematics pathways for incoming ninth graders for the 2016-2017 school year has been modified. Here is the pathways chart that Mrs. Naber referenced at the Board meeting in April 2015. Click here to view the entire presentation.
What does math look like for the 2016-2017 8th grade students?
As you are aware, this year is the second year of a new mathematics pathway, which begins in 8th grade and continues into 9th & 10th grades. Algebra 1 & 2 have been combined to create a two‐year algebra sequence. Students will learn the entire Common Core Algebra 1 curriculum within the two years, as well as the non-trigonometric topics from Common Core Algebra 2. The topics from Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 were shifted in order to appropriately align with one another. This will allow students to go deeper into these algebraic topics each year. The Common Core Algebra 1 Regents exam will be administered in June of the second year of Algebra. It is important to note that by reorganizing the curriculum to go deeper into fewer topics each year, not all of the Common Core Algebra 1 topics will be taught in the first year. Therefore, students will not be prepared to take the Common Core Algebra 1 Regents Examination until the end of the second year. All other courses would culminate in a departmentally‐designed final examination. Following the Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 courses, students will take Geometry/Trigonometry. By the end of three years, students will have completed the entire Common Core Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 standards. They are simply being reorganized to maximize learning and promote mastery.
It is important to note that the year-end grade earned by your child in this year’s Algebra 1 course will appear on his/her high school transcript. The Common Core Algebra 1 Regents Exam score will appear on the high school transcript next to your child’s 9th grade Algebra 2 grade.
