8 TH GRADE MATH AT SCS - HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE Selected students were gathered in the cafeteria to participate in Algebra for placement credit. More students did the same thing Anyone who wanted to give it a try signed a contract to complete all work and participate. All students attended for either enrichment or placement credit – still a choice. All students do 8 th grade math and those that make the grade will get placement credit at CVU.
8 TH GRADE MATH AT SCS: All students have the opportunity to take higher level math courses in high school 8 th Grade Math Includes All Algebra 1 Content Collaborative planning to ensure student engagement
WHAT DOES 8 TH GRADE MATH LOOK LIKE AT SCS? Math is taught every day Math takes place in the classroom and additional monthly meetings in the cafeteria 8 th Grade Math Merge Students participate in follow-up sessions Algebra is taught by all 8 th grade math teachers and is collaborative – monthly planning
ASSESSMENTS IN 8 TH GRADE Students will be assessed on the same content but we have different expectations… SCS midterm CVU final 80% average on highest level of assessments means a recommendation to Geometry SBAC – spring 2015 SBAC
TRUE OR FALSE QUIZ 8 th Grade Math is exclusive and students are hand-picked to take Algebra for placement credit. Students are expected to teach themselves algebra and there is no direct instruction or time for follow up with teachers. Every student will get credit for Algebra and be placed into Geometry in high school. 8 th Grade Math Merge is the only time Algebra is taught at SCS.
