00:00:02.290 --> 00:00:03.630
This video is gonna talk about
2
00:00:03.630 --> 00:00:05.940
The New Math Course of Study.
3
00:00:05.940 --> 00:00:07.170
I am Mark VanHooser.
4
00:00:07.170 --> 00:00:08.880
I'm the District Curriculum Specialist
5
00:00:08.880 --> 00:00:11.653
in the Secondary Programs at Huntsville City Schools.
6
00:00:15.310 --> 00:00:18.670
This is a visual of the traditional middle school pathway.
7
00:00:18.670 --> 00:00:20.240
Coming from 5th Grade,
8
00:00:20.240 --> 00:00:22.550
students can go into either 6th Grade regular
9
00:00:22.550 --> 00:00:24.420
or honors classes.
10
00:00:24.420 --> 00:00:26.080
There's a regular route
11
00:00:26.080 --> 00:00:28.010
and an honors slash accelerated route
12
00:00:28.010 --> 00:00:30.010
that students can take in middle school.
13
00:00:31.070 --> 00:00:33.770
The 7th Grade Accelerated and 8th Grade Accelerated,
14
00:00:33.770 --> 00:00:36.470
both those classes together, satisfy the Algebra 1
15
00:00:36.470 --> 00:00:38.803
with probability requirement in high school.
16
00:00:40.370 --> 00:00:42.890
You can choose to move from
17
00:00:42.890 --> 00:00:45.420
a regular route to honors route at any time
18
00:00:45.420 --> 00:00:49.390
except for those students that are in 7th Grade regular
19
00:00:49.390 --> 00:00:51.770
cannot go into 8th Grade Accelerated
20
00:00:51.770 --> 00:00:54.150
because the 7th Grade Accelerated
21
00:00:54.150 --> 00:00:56.930
and 8th Grade Accelerated both satisfied
22
00:00:56.930 --> 00:00:59.903
the Algebra I with probability requirement in high school.
23
00:01:01.000 --> 00:01:02.760
Then from 8th Grade
24
00:01:02.760 --> 00:01:05.763
they would go on into Geometry With Data Analysis.
25
00:01:09.360 --> 00:01:11.323
So this is a 6-8 Grade overview.
26
00:01:12.180 --> 00:01:13.880
The 7th and 8th Grade Accelerated courses
27
00:01:13.880 --> 00:01:16.460
satisfy the Algebra 1 with probability content
28
00:01:16.460 --> 00:01:19.000
in high school in the new Course of Study.
29
00:01:19.000 --> 00:01:21.710
But it is not give an Algebra 1 with probability
30
00:01:21.710 --> 00:01:24.083
high school credit on the student's transcript.
31
00:01:25.830 --> 00:01:28.650
Algebra 1 will not be offered in the middle school anymore
32
00:01:28.650 --> 00:01:31.480
because of the 7th Grade and 8th Grade
33
00:01:31.480 --> 00:01:34.113
Accelerated courses satisfying that content.
34
00:01:35.860 --> 00:01:38.114
The school can use progression with acceleration
35
00:01:38.114 --> 00:01:40.040
and not hinder a student's progress
36
00:01:40.040 --> 00:01:42.420
because of the student's grade level.
37
00:01:42.420 --> 00:01:45.160
For example, a student who is highly advanced in math
38
00:01:45.160 --> 00:01:48.803
may take Geometry with Data Analysis in middle school.
39
00:01:51.988 --> 00:01:56.150
This is a visual of the entire high school pathway.
40
00:01:56.150 --> 00:01:57.590
There's a lot going on here.
41
00:01:57.590 --> 00:02:00.243
So let me focus in on the first section.
42
00:02:04.620 --> 00:02:07.160
This section of the pathway
43
00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:10.450
are the three courses that are required for graduation.
44
00:02:10.450 --> 00:02:11.900
You have Geometry With Data,
45
00:02:11.900 --> 00:02:13.430
Algebra 1 With Probability
46
00:02:13.430 --> 00:02:15.173
and Algebra II With Statistics.
47
00:02:16.260 --> 00:02:18.810
These three courses have a regular and honors route
48
00:02:19.770 --> 00:02:23.240
and all three courses may have an Optional Lab Course
49
00:02:23.240 --> 00:02:25.313
for those students who are struggling.
50
00:02:27.080 --> 00:02:30.180
I do want to point out that Geometry and Algebra 1
51
00:02:30.180 --> 00:02:32.030
can be taken concurrently.
52
00:02:32.030 --> 00:02:34.330
That means they can be taken at the same time.
53
00:02:35.310 --> 00:02:38.240
Also those students who have taken
54
00:02:38.240 --> 00:02:40.430
7th and 8th Grade Accelerated
55
00:02:40.430 --> 00:02:43.150
can skip Algebra 1 With Probability
56
00:02:43.150 --> 00:02:45.850
because they have fulfilled that requirement
57
00:02:45.850 --> 00:02:47.420
in middle school.
58
00:02:47.420 --> 00:02:49.580
So they can go from Geometry With Data
59
00:02:49.580 --> 00:02:51.380
and skip out Algebra 1 With Probability
60
00:02:51.380 --> 00:02:53.733
and go on to Algebra II With Statistics.
61
00:02:57.580 --> 00:03:01.770
Once a student completes Algebra II With Statistics,
62
00:03:01.770 --> 00:03:04.760
they have lots of options they can go from there.
63
00:03:04.760 --> 00:03:07.460
Students can take Applications of Finite Math,
64
00:03:07.460 --> 00:03:10.450
Mathematical Modeling or Pre-calculus
65
00:03:10.450 --> 00:03:11.940
there's an honors Pre-calculus
66
00:03:11.940 --> 00:03:15.180
that will help them go on to AP Calculus,
67
00:03:15.180 --> 00:03:17.100
or they can go into some extended content
68
00:03:17.100 --> 00:03:20.650
like AP Computer Science or AP Statistics.
69
00:03:20.650 --> 00:03:24.290
And there are other courses that state department approved
70
00:03:24.290 --> 00:03:27.743
that will satisfy that last math requirement.
71
00:03:34.000 --> 00:03:36.410
This is a 9-12 overview.
72
00:03:36.410 --> 00:03:39.840
Students must have four math credits to graduate.
73
00:03:39.840 --> 00:03:43.503
Students must take Geometry, Algebra 1 and Algebra II.
74
00:03:44.640 --> 00:03:46.040
Those students who took 7th
75
00:03:46.040 --> 00:03:49.100
and 8th Grade Accelerated can skip Algebra 1
76
00:03:49.100 --> 00:03:51.713
but must take two other math courses to graduate.
77
00:03:53.670 --> 00:03:56.340
There may be optional Math Labs for Algebra 1
78
00:03:56.340 --> 00:03:57.810
Geometry and Algebra 11
79
00:03:57.810 --> 00:03:59.883
for those students who are struggling.
80
00:04:02.190 --> 00:04:04.560
Geometry is now taken it in the 9th Grade
81
00:04:04.560 --> 00:04:08.253
and that started this year, the 2020-2021 school year.
82
00:04:10.340 --> 00:04:13.840
Those who want can take Algebra I
83
00:04:13.840 --> 00:04:17.590
with Geometry concurrently in 9th Grade
84
00:04:17.590 --> 00:04:21.193
for the opportunity to take AP Calculus their senior year.
85
00:04:23.280 --> 00:04:25.390
If a student passes either Algebra 1
86
00:04:25.390 --> 00:04:29.050
or Geometry in middle school and retakes Algebra 1
87
00:04:29.050 --> 00:04:31.300
and or Geometry in high school,
88
00:04:31.300 --> 00:04:33.870
then that student cannot count the middle school course
89
00:04:33.870 --> 00:04:35.223
for high school credit.
90
00:04:39.660 --> 00:04:42.690 line:15%
Thank you for your time for listening to this presentation.
91
00:04:42.690 --> 00:04:43.730 line:15%
If you have any questions
92
00:04:43.730 --> 00:04:46.550 line:15%
please contact your school counselor.
93
00:04:46.550 --> 00:04:47.383 line:15%
Thank you.
