Mathematics Articulation ProjectSummer 2005 | Admin | June 1, 2005 at 2:02 pm
The Mathematics Articulation Project was developed to promote greater consistency among middle and elementary school teachers, to improve student skills in mathematics, and to meet California State Standards. Teachers become a professional learning community on strategies to address the achievement gap and improve student test scores. The project is funded by the California Postsecondary Education Commission through the Improving Teacher Quality grant and has served school districts throughout the State.
During the first year of the project, school teams developed an articulation framework in mathematics and a detailed matrix of standards and activities that are used by participating teachers and shared with other schools. This project assists students in the transition from elementary to middle school mathematics curriculum and reinforces high expectations for all students at GEAR UP schools. Middle school mathematics and feeder elementary school teachers will participate in forty hours of articulation in mathematics during summer 2005. Orientation meetings have been scheduled for each school site.
