Counts on fingers & toes Posts: 1 | I have been assigned a "College Prep Math" class for this school year. The previous CPM teacher retired and did not leave many resources. My original idea: Day 1: syllabus, safety, etc... Day 2: ACT Math Test After grading, students self assess weaknesses and self assign work from AGA Courses. Pacing: 18 weeks Weeks 1-7: 7 - One Week Chapters in AGA course of weakness ACT Test Weeks 7-13: 6 - One Week Chapters in the second AGA course of weakness ACT Test Weeks 13-18: 5 - One Week Chapters in the AGA course of strength Final ACT | ||

Math Location: IAKSS | From Bo Lankster, TCHS (1st Semester). I use the KYOTE standards Exercise sets that Natalee sent me about 5 years ago. This curriculum drives my teaching. We want all students to pass KYOTE along with retaking the ACT. I also use EdReady to give students 1:1 computer time to complete/reach Mastery. (2nd Semester). Life Prep All real life skills activities Lots of presenting and learning about $$ Credit Taxes Jobs Budgeting Buy Car Rent Apartment Plus a whole lot more Bo Lankster | ||

Math Location: IAKSS | From Sarah Lubbe/ PLDunbar Kahn Academy is another great resource for College Math Prep. It is free and the kids can work on things that are specific to their learning challenges. | ||

Math Location: IAKSS | From Ronni Tallent There is also kyote for review or test. You can print a book with kyote practice questions. Henry Clay uses. Mike Haake, Kate Johnson, and Sarah Zehnder would be additional experts to ask about a successful College Math Prep course. The ultimate goal is to get the math ACT score to benchmark. Goal is 22 for College Algebra. | ||
