Connecticut District Tosses Algebra Textbooks and Goes Online - NYTimes.com
"Math students in high-performing school district used to rush through their Algebra I textbooks only to spend the first few months of Algebra II relearning everything they forgot or failed to grasp the 1st time...district’s frustrated math teachers decided to rewrite algebra curriculum, limiting it to about 1/2 of the 90 concepts typically covered in a high school course in hopes of developing a deeper understanding of key topics...replacing 1,000+ page math textbooks with their own custom-designed online curriculum...“In America, we run through chapters like a speeding train. Schools in Singapore & India spend more time on each topic & their kids do better. We’re boiling down math to the essentials.”...students focus only on linear functions in Algebra I, taught in 7th, 8th or 9th grade depending on student ability & leave quadratics & exponents to Algebra II, eliminating overlap & repetition typical of most textbooks & curriculum guidelines...result=less review+higher test scores"
