Is your school making a concerted effort to boost your students’ math knowledge, skills, and achievement? We are looking for innovative middle and high school approaches that aim to improve math performance.
Examples might include, but are not limited to:
• Redesigned middle and high school courses that incorporate the Common Core math standards
• Offering high school mathematics courses in middle school grades
• High school partnerships with community colleges to align curriculum, reducing the need for remedial math courses in college
• Math-intensive career and technical education course offerings
• High schools that require a math or math-intensive course for seniors
• “Remediation prevention” math course offered in the senior year
• Student math support systems (e.g. tutoring, after-school help, supplemental materials)
• Dual credit/dual enrollment in mathematics
• Specialty courses to bolster math offerings
• Applied math projects
• On-line mathematics courses
Please provide contact information and describe your innovative mathematics approach in 300 words or less. Any evidence of effectiveness is highly recommended. You may direct us to additional information through web links.
The Lieutenant Governor’s Office may contact you to arrange a site visit to publicly highlight your innovation. It is our hope that others may learn from your school in order to improve mathematics learning statewide.
