2 We use numbers everyday What does that look like in Averill Park in grades K-5

3 High School 9-12

4 Graduation Requirements Diploma Choice # Regents exams Regents Adv Regents (3 exams) 1 Alg, Geo, or Alg2/Trig 3 progressive courses Regents Adv Regents (2 exams) 1 must be Math A 3 progressive courses School Regents 1 for that course 1 any math course # math credits Future post-2008 Present Past pre-2002

6 Math B AlgebraGeometryAlgebra 2 and Trigonometry 3 years

7 Geometry A Contemporary Intermediate Algebra Geometry Honors Tech Math Algebra Calculus 1/PreCalc BC Calc Statistics PreCalc Algebra 2 & Trig Honors

8 Geometry Honors Algebra 2 & Trig Honors Algebra 3 year sequence to an Advanced Regents diploma All 9 th graders enter Algebra except accelerated and ILP students Regents exam is administered in June for each class Graphing Calculator Technology introduced in Algebra and continued in all courses Strict grade requirements to advance to the next level

9 Algebra 2 & Trig Honors Geometry A Geometry Honors Algebra Bridge to an advanced diploma Smaller class size EDC Grant textbook/workbook/notebook Graphing Calculator emphasized Peer mentors Graded classwork/homework 1 st sem- prep for Jan Regents 2 nd sem- prep for Geo Honors

10 Intermediate Algebra Geometry Honors Algebra Algebra 2 & Trig Honors Bridge to an advanced diploma Opportunity to build skills for return to advanced diploma program Graphing Calculator utilized

11 Geometry A Contemporary Intermediate Algebra Tech Math Algebra Tech Math Work completed in classroom Emphasis on math in construction, electricity, and automobiles Contemporary Math Basic skills applied to the real world Homework started in class Curriculum based upon HVCC course Intermediate Algebra Last bridge back to an advanced diploma Preparation for entry into Trig & Advanced Algebra at the college level

12 Statistics PreCalc Elective for Juniors or Seniors who have met graduation requirements Designed for career in psychology, sociology or economics Bridge to Calculus at Averill Park or beyond

13 Geometry Honors Trig & Algebra 2 Honors Algebra Calculus 1/PreCalc BC Calc Beyond the Advanced Regents Diploma Algebra is completed at Algonquin Cal 1/PreCalc possibility of 8 undergraduate credits through HVCC BC Calculus Advanced Placement Exam potential for 3 or 4 additional college credits

14 Geometry A Contemporary Intermediate Algebra Geometry Honors Tech Math Algebra Calculus 1/PreCalc BC Calc Statistics PreCalc Algebra 2 & Trig Honors

15 Middle School 6-8

16 Present Grade 6-8 NYS exams 74 minute blocks Class meets every other day Past Grade 8 NYS exam 39 minute periods Class meets each day

17 Efforts to Improve Student Growth Differentiation of math classes ILP Seminar Grade Level Enriched Math 6 Pre-Algebra Algebra Geometry Honors

18 EDC work summer 2008 on differentiated math lessons Additional math time for all grade 6 and targeted 7 th and 8 th grade students -6 th Grade- Extra math time during Skills Lab -7 th & 8 th Grade Seminar students have an extra 35 minutes of class every other day in place of “study hall” Efforts to Improve Student Growth

19 Ongoing Efforts to Improve Student Growth Data driven decision making Analyzing performance on NYS exams -amount of time spent on units -sequencing of units -pacing Align curriculum maps to avoid gaps/redundancy Professional Goal Setting

20 Initial results of mapping and skill grouping…

22 Elementary K-5

23 Present Grades 3-5 NYS Exams (administered in March) Past Grade 4 NYS Exam (administered in May) District-wide Final Exam in Grade 5 (developed by teachers & administered in June) Assessment

24 Past Math Question A)Identify the given angle SAM as acute, right, or obtuse. B) How do you know what type of angle it is? _____________________________________ A M S

25 Present Math Question

26 Present Curriculum mapping on-line (Tech Paths) Curriculum has shifted downward Curriculum teams organized by grade level Past Curriculum in a binder Curriculum teams organized by subject Curriculum

27 Present Full day Kindergarten One math series text and supplemental resources for the whole district Use of manipulatives in all grades Past ½ day Kindergarten Various texts and tools used throughout the district Instructional Practices

28 Efforts to Improve Student Growth EDC work on focusing on sharing resources and common assessments Formative assessment Inservice work on math literacy Vertical alignment of math curriculum AIS support for 4 th and 5 th grade
