Course Setup

  • Consider this your virtual "classroom tour". This page is designed to help you understand how to access the units, lessons, and assignments so that you can get started with your learning. Remember, you can always refer back to this page if you need a refresher.

     

    Objective:

    Understand the setup of the course so we can successfully navigate through it.

     

    Assignment:

    Read the information below and ensure you understand how to access all of your course materials. Please let me know if you have any questions. 

     

  • Standards of Mathematical Practice

    By now, you're probably familiar with the Standards of Mathematical Practice. You've most likely been referring to them in math since you started elementary school. They are guidelines that we use to ensure that we're making the most of our mathematics learning experience, and look like this:

    1.     Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them

    2.     Reason abstractly and quantitatively

    3.     Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others

    4.     Model with mathematics

    5.     Use appropriate tools strategically

    6.     Attend to precision

    7.     Look for and make use of structure

    8.     Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

     

    In February of 2020, the Florida of Department of Education adopted new standards that will begin to be introduced to you in classes over the next three years. One of the things that were changed was the above standards. They are now the Standards of Mathematical Thinking and Reasoning. Please review the posters below and familiarize yourself with these standards, as we refer to them throughout the course and will use them to facilitate the practice of learning mathematics.
