Curriculum Updates

October 2014

Math

  • All curriculum materials for 3rd and 4th quarters are complete. They will be posted to CMAPP no later than December 1st.


  • Be sure to use the resources on CMAPP (unit overviews and YouTube videos) to communicate with parents. We are working to get the overviews translated into Spanish, starting with 3rd quarter, and posted to the WCPSS internet site.


  • A free math contest is available for Wake County schools starting. This year, you take part as a class, and compete against other classes in your school and across Wake County. For questions, contact info@sumdog.com. In order to join in the fun, teachers must visit: http://www.sumdog.com/en/Contest_invitation/?hc


  • Please provide any feedback about the lessons and resources on CMAPP. Email me the feedback and I will forward the information on for the county to review.
