I do not know if this is an option but consider revamping the course. Rather than have a focus on the test, get materials that might focus on problem solving and modelling. You could then emphasize those areas that are included in the test. When I taught these classes, I felt like a total failure when I am focused on the test(s). However, when I found some "interesting" modeling problems, the kids were better and learn a lot more. As I said, I do not know if this helps but I think it makes sense to try it. PS - Take a look at the new textbooks out that were funded by the NSF. Perhaps one of those might be a first step. http://www.ithaca.edu/compass/ Good Luck!!! -Rick, for the Teacher2Teacher service
