Common Core transition
Posted:
Mar 13, 2012 7:02 AM



If anyone has more info, I'd like to know more:
On the timeline slide, it is difficult to tell from the size of the bars if Geometry occurs with Algebra 1 or with Algebra 2. I see there are footnote numbers on this slide. Do you know what the footnotes are? Is there additional info about the time for Geometry?
On release of curriculum materials: 2/6 modules. What is a module? Is this 2/6 modules for each course?
The common core standards recommends testing both with and without technology. Current middle school exams have sections with/without calculator use. It's not clear if this breakout will continue or if all sections with be with calculator. Anyone heard?
Any information on graphing calculator use at the HS level?
Thanks
