Resource students are assigned to classes on the basis of their own choices and with recommendations of resource teachers and parents. The Individualized Education Program (IEP) sets forth a plan of goals and objectives, which specifies accommodations and services necessary to meet the students’ needs.
Learning Recommendations: Math placement test and teacher recommendation
General Description: This class focuses on continuing to develop number sense and teach problem-solving strategies that are later applied to story problems throughout the book. Using the Transitional Mathematics Level 2 book, topics covered include operations involving fractions and decimals, estimation and rounding, graphing, measurement using the metric and U.S. customary systems as well as study of geometric transformations and tessellations as well as classifying polygons. Concepts involving critical thinking and problem solving are taught through guided practice and application of math concepts in everyday living situations.
Course Fee / Materials: Spiral-bound notebook and Scientific Calculator needed. If you need to purchase one, the TI-34 MultiView is recommended. A graphing calculator is not required until Algebra 2 and above.
