‘Integrated’ Math: A Transitional Approach to the Common Core

Monday, Dec. 1, 2014, 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. ET

As part of the process of adapting to the Common Core State Standards for math, educators in the Community High School District 99 in Downers Grove, Ill., decided to transition the district’s high school math curriculum to an integrated course sequence. That meant abandoning the traditional classes of Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 for courses that bring together a variety of math topics. In this chat, math instructional leaders from the district will discuss the reasoning behind that decision, the challenges they have faced with the transition, and the benefits they have seen so far.

Guest:
Paul Stevenson, math department chairman, Downers Grove South High School, Ill.
Gina Ziccardi, assistant superintendent for student learning, Community High School District 99, Downers Grove, Ill.
