1 1 Executive Summary The Algebra II/Precalculus Textbook Adoption Committee evaluated several textbooks, followed the process prescribed by the CDE, and selected Precalculus with Limits, Houghton Mifflin. Curriculum Council approved recommending the adoption to the Board of Education on February 12, This presentation highlights the process that was followed and the importance of approving this adoption in  Coordinate adoption with Geometry and Algebra II  Provide a textbook that is consistent with current Calculus textbook  Provide current textbook in time for renewal of Articulation Agreement with Delta College  Provide a uniform textbook in the District for Precalculus. Three textbooks are currently being used: Advanced Mathematics (1984), Trigonometry (1993), Introduction to Analysis (1988)

5 Math Articulation Committee Supports Precalculus Textbook Adoption by: Choosing to continue using the Evaluation Form used for Algebra Readiness, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra I Scheduling textbook preview for September 8-15 at all high school sites Limiting membership of the committee to 3 representatives per high school

6 6 Precalculus Textbook Preview Period: Various publishers’ textbooks were sent to the comprehensive high school sites for evaluation Initial evaluation period scheduled for September 8-15 Evaluation period extended to allow sites more time to preview CPM

7 7 Events of the Geometry Textbook Adoption Committee Meeting (9/22) Influenced the Algebra II and Precalculus Adoptions Bear Creek presented a letter stating that they “will not participate in the vote on curriculums.” Math Toolkit Training was summarized for members who had not attended the Toolkit Training at the County Office in November ’07 Preview period extended to give sites more time to evaluate CPM

8 8 Additional Actions Taken at Algebra II/Precalculus Textbook Adoption Committee Meeting (10/28) Committee requested data to develop district lens as recommended in Math Toolkit Informal ranking narrows top three choices for Precalculus to McDougal Littell, CPM, and Glencoe

9 9 Events of the Final Geometry Textbook Adoption Committee Meeting (11/3) Influenced the Algebra II and Precalculus Adoptions CST and enrollment data presented to develop district lens Committee voted to keep Evaluation Rubric unchanged Members examine scores for: math content, assessment, universal access, and instructional program Committee selects McDougal Littell Geometry

10 10 Algebra II/Precalculus Textbook Adoption Committee Meeting (11/13): Consistent with the Geometry Adoption Committee, the Algebra II/Precalculus Adoption Committee: –Used CST and enrollment data presented to develop district lens –Voted to keep Evaluation Rubric unchanged –Examined evaluations for Algebra II and Precalculus in the areas of: math content, assessment, universal access, and instructional program Committee selected McDougal Littell for Algebra II Committee agreed to do further analysis using standards sampling on four Precalculus topics prior to the next meeting

11 11 Precalculus Textbook Meeting (12/11): Results of evaluations for the four Precalculus topics were split between Houghton Mifflin and Glencoe Committee members agreed to do a blind test using the abbreviated evaluation form on the topic of Geometric Sequences Committee discussed results Committee selected Precalculus with Limits by Houghton Mifflin

12 12 Straw Poll Ranking Put Houghton Mifflin and Glencoe in 1 st and 2 nd Place (10/28/08) Houghton MifflinCPMGlencoePrentice HallHolt – 1 st Place 3 – 2 nd Place 2 – 1 st Place 0 – 2 nd Place 3 – 1 st Place 1 – 2 nd Place 1 st Place = 2 pts., 2 nd Place = 1 pt.

17 17 Teachers’ Reasons for Selecting Houghton Mifflin  Key concepts are prominently identified; standards are addressed well; key vocabulary in bold  Plenty of examples, side notes about common errors  Word problems are concise enough so concepts can be approached by most students  Variety of applications provided, ranging from beginner to advanced  Format consistent with Calculus textbook  Technology Components are included in adoption

18 18 Committee Recommends Adoption of Precalculus with Limits (Houghton Mifflin) in  Coordinate adoption with Geometry and Algebra II  Provide current textbook in time for renewal of Articulation Agreement with Delta College  Provide a uniform textbook in the District for Precalculus. Current texts used:  Advanced Mathematics (1984) – Harcourt Brace J  Trigonometry (1993) – Prentice Hall  Introduction to Analysis (1988) – Houghton Mifflin  No pilot – at most only 6 Precalculus teachers District-wide in
