  • Purpose of Tonights Meeting
  • Chain of Events Leading up to Tonight
  • Goals of the Process
  • A. Consistency
  • B. Transparency
  • C. Communication

4
Dr. Huss K- 5
  • K-4 A Summary
  • Harcourt Text Series K-5
  • Focusing younger grades on the use of math
    manipulatives and hands on-learning
  • Heterogeneous Grouping
  • Math Compacting REACH
  • TERC Investigations

5
Curriculum is not changing!the materials
used to deliver instruction to prepare students
for middle school and the rigors of state testing
will change. All classes at grade 5 use the same
curriculum.
6
Grade 5
  • Math Grouping Begins High and Heterogeneous
    Classes fixed percentage of students in classes
  • Placement Process to be completed by the end of
    September of the 5th grade year
  • Criteria grade 4 end of year test (top 60 of
    class)
  • grade 4 math grades (all As
    on Report Card)
  • NJASK4 Score (top 50 or top
    30)
  • Waivers will not be permitted at the 5th Grade
    Level

7
Grade 5 Continued
  • Textbook Harcourt 5 Text/Glencoe Course 1
  • (Pacing and Sequence to be determined by 5th
    grade math teachers)
  • Compacting Groups determined at the beginning
    of each chapter to ensure all students are
    challenged. Glencoe Course 2 text may be used as
    one material for compacting.
  • Consistency in Content (high classes
    differentiate in depth)

8
Summer Fun Opportunity
  • Transition Math Class
  • 5th to 6th grade math students
  • Taught by WMS teacher
  • Design to help prepare all students transitioning
    from 5th to 6th grade math
  • Limited class size

9
Mr. Comba
  • Middle School Math Program
  • Grade 6
  • Grade 7
  • Grade 8
  • Sequence of Math Courses at WHRHS

Placement
  • To enter Grade 6
  • Placement Test 80 high range
  • Below 80 - hetero range
  • Teacher Recommendation based on

    maintained, student will be moved to appropriate
    class level).

12
End of Sixth Grade For A Small Cohort
  • Small cohort of students 6-8 on average
  • Identified during the sixth grade
  • Test into this cohort
  • Skip seventh grade pre-algebra and take 8th grade
    algebra J class as 7th graders
  • 8th graders take Geometry Honors at WHRHS
  • No waivers are permitted into this program

13
Placement
  • To enter Grade 7
  • Placement test 90gt for Pre-Algebra
  • Teacher Recommendation based on
  • First 3 marking period grades

    marking period if required grade average is not
    maintained, student will be moved to appropriate
    class level).

14
placement
  • To enter Grade 8
  • Test/quiz Grades from the first 3 MP periods
    Pre-algebra 85gt J level, other wise K level
    out of pre-algebra
  • If in Course 3 Hetero Class 93gt J, 83-92 K
    lower than 83 pre-algebra in grade 8
  • Algebra Pre-Readiness Identification Test 80gt
    J level, 70gt K level and 69lt Pre-Algebra
  • All 7th grade Pre-Algebra students are guaranteed
    entrance into Algebra K minimally.
  • Waiver requests will be granted, except students
    may not waive from Hetero 7 to Algebra J (after
    one marking period if required grade average is
    not maintained, student will be moved to
    appropriate class level 70 GPA in K and 83 in
    J).
