I summarize some of our work in 2008, which involved
getting a strong gnu math curriculum outlined for our
charters:

I skip over a lot of course, e.g. under permutations we
would discuss ASCII versus Unicode, the difference
additional digits make, when permuting binary patterns
of ones and zeros.

Which new charters? Some of the elite academies in this
storyboard are more IB-like (International Baccalaureate)
in terms of preparing students to return home without
having fallen way behind in their studies. Whereas run
of the mill USA schools have a reputation for leaving
students behind, this newer technologically literate
curriculum is more obviously world class:
