How West Virginia Does Common Core
I haven't written in a while! I have been so busy learning about our new state standards for mathematics, and I have to say that I am really excited! I love the integration of Algebra and Geometry, and I really think that it will make an impact on students. Here is a link to the new state standards if you are interested: WV NxG CSOs.
As a part of this shift, the state was nice enough to employ some very qualified teachers to develop units for us to teach. Check them out here: Math 1 Unit Plan Search.
These unit plans are very good, and I have started creating PowerPoint lessons for them. I will start to post those as I get them finished. Since I am only teaching Geometry and Algebra 3 this coming school year, I am focusing on Units 5 and 6 as they are the Geometry units for Math 1. As I get them finished, I will post them here. Wish me luck, and I'll let you know how it goes!
