Curriculum Update - 6th grade Pre-AP Math

Our campus will continually strive to serve children in an authentic, meaningful and challenging manner. LEISD Math curriculum specialist, Dr. Kelli Mallory, has worked diligently alongside our math staff to find a creative way to do so in Math. We began with end STEM goals in mind and so our campus goal is for EVERY student at Prestwick STEM Academy to take Algebra I (high school credit) in 8th grade.


We looked critically at the best ways to accomplish this goal. It was determined that we will work through our Math curriculum in such a way that all 6th grade learners, beginning in fall 2014, will take Pre- AP 6th Grade Math. This means that in 6th grade, learners will complete all of the 6th grade curriculum, as well as a great portion of the 7th grade curriculum. When students then move to 7th grade they will continue in the 7th grade Pre-AP which continues the 7th grade standards as well as all of the the 8th grade curriculum. Once these students then reach 8th grade they will take Pre-AP Algebra 1. This sequence will allow students to go to high school with one completed high school mathematics credit and sets them up to be able to take 4 additional years of math. This will allow students to have room in their schedule to gain the STEM endorsement credit for their diploma, which requires 5 high school mathematics credits. We believe this will translate into increased college/career readiness.


We know that this will be a challenge and will require various levels of support to ensure success of our learners. We commit to doing so. We are excited to raise our expectations and provide children with a quality Math education!


This year's 7th and 8th graders have not all received this same accelerated curriculum so they will still take Regular or Pre-AP sections of Math based upon what they took last year to ensure they have the adequate foundation they need moving forward.
