Gifted and Talented Mathematics K-12 Program Citizens Advisory Council for Gifted and Talented Education January 10, 2007 Pat Baltzley, Director Office of Mathematics 410.887.4056

Overview PreK-12 Mathematics Program Philosophy New elementary mathematics program from a G/T perspective Secondary mathematics from a G/T perspective G/T5 and G/T 6 articulation – Where are we in the process?

Overview G/T services for students talented in mathematics Other concerns –Highly qualified/certified mathematics teachers –BCPS preparation of students for mathematics beyond high school

What is it? New Elementary Mathematics Program Grades 1-5 Scott Foresman-Addison Wesley Investigations

Implementation Plan Phase I: –2006-2007 School Year Kindergarten program: Investigations Grades 1-5: Scott Foresman core basal Phase II: –2007-2008 School Year Kindergarten program: Investigations Grades 1-5: Core basal blended with Investigations

Overview PreK-12 Mathematics Program Philosophy New elementary mathematics program from a G/T perspective Secondary mathematics from a G/T perspective G/T5 and G/T 6 articulation

Overview G/T services for students talented in mathematics –Identification process –Content Acceleration –Heads and Shoulders Program

Overview Other concerns –Highly qualified/certified mathematics teachers Middle School highly qualified status –83.5% in 2005-2006 Secondary mathematics certified status –Middle School currently 37.5% –High School currently 80.9% –BCPS preparation of students for mathematics beyond high school
