This August area High School Math teachers gave up some of their time to come together to work on preparing for the upcoming school year. With the transition to the Common Core over the last two years most have grown accustom to the format of the NYSED Modules on EngageNY. However, even though some Algebra I teachers have had two years under their belt (and Geometry completing their first year of using the Common Core standards) they came together to share ideas of what they’ll look to tweak for this school year. Those teaching Algebra II also worked on adapting the modules for this first year of implementation of Common Core Algebra II. Throughout the two sets of 2-day offerings in August teachers were able to share ideas with others and have time to plan to hit the ground running next month.
As things continue to change for this trainsition to the new Common Core Algebra II exam you can find any and all of the approved High School Regents changes and/or resources at EngageNY: https://www.engageny.org/resource/regents-exams-mathematics
Resources shared for area teachers are also posted in our CABOCES HS Moodle course at: http://moodle.caboces.org/demo/course/view.php?id=471
