 Math Common Core Parent Night

Thank you to our many families who were able to join us for the Math Department’s presentation on the new Common Core Math Standards.  The math team shared information on our newly adopted math instructional materials and the Instructional (Teaching) Strategies that must be shifted in order to effectively prepare students for college and careers. 

If you were not able to join us, please view or download the PowerPoint presentation and peruse the other reference materials provided below.  We have also provided links to a Three-Minute video by Common Core: State Standards Initiative that explains the background and the goals of Common Core Standards and to a video by Dr. Jo Boaler, Professor of Mathematics Education at Stanford University.  (Mrs. Lomeli is actually participating in a research study on Growth Mindset with Dr. Boaler this year!)

If you have any questions after reviewing the information or how to best support your child through these changes, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s math teacher.  Cavitt JHS truly believes that building a partnership with families will support our adolescent learners in this significant and important change. 

Thank you for your support!

Cavitt Junior High is proud to offer students Project Lead the Way and S.T.E.M. classes to ready them for their futures.  To learn more, see the information below!
