Pre-Ap Mathematics

Concerns

Some comments from this years Pre-Ap curriculum


  • it is too much math for the time we have
  • the kids are barely scratching the surface before we have to move on
  • this math is critical and we are shoving it down their throats
  • having two different scope and sequences makes data difficult
  • Larger gaps to fill
  • No time

HOW CAN WE ADJUST TO MAKE THIS SITUATION BETTER?
