  1. Toyota PEP Grant in Boone County Schools Focus on Algebra

  2. Program Goals

  3. Collaborative Discussions around Algebra • Cohort of teachers grades 6-12 working in grade level bands and in vertical clusters • Also included representatives who specialize in special education • Instructional Coaches from each of the 9 schools • District Staff • Higher Education partners from NKU to facilitate and participate in discussions

  4. Vertical Articulation of KCAS • Started with a sample assessment item from Algebra 2 Quality Core End-of-Course assessment • What standards must the students have mastered at each grade level to display proficiency at this level? • What mathematical practices must students be proficient in, what does this look like as it develops over the grade-levels?

  5. Instructional Strategies • Tasks of sufficient mathematical richness • Emphasize and intentionally address the 8 math practice standards (focus on structure, persistence in problem solving and mathematical modeling). • Utilizing technology to enhance student learning – Geogebra and Graphing Calculators

  6. Barriers and Adjustments • Theory and plan of action • More in-depth reflection on our own classroom practices • Deeper connections between instructional practice, student mastery and the math of the standards. • 2012-2013: Lesson study.

  7. Continuing our work • 4 Lesson Study groups • Middle and High school teachers team together with IHE partners • Address questions of practice generated during 2011-2012 Workshops and KCAS Algebra standards
