Missouri Education Department Drops Plan for Integrated-Math Tests
The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education says it is dropping plans to create statewide math exams using an “integrated math” curriculum.
Such a curriculum offers a sequence of courses that teaches some algebra, geometry, and higher math in the first year, followed by more-complex concepts the next three school years. It replaces a system in which math is taught in a sequence of Algebra 1, geometry, Algebra 2, and then higher-level courses.
The states decision not to create tests for Integrated Math 2 and 3 is expected to convince many districts to drop the integrated-math system.
