Agenda Item #30


Title
Secondary (Grades 7 through 12) Mathematics Textbook Adoption

Discussion

With the state-wide implementation of the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) and the changes in the mathematics state assessments as of the 2010-2011 school year, there remains a disconnect between the instructional materials adopted in 2003 and the NGSSS to be assessed.  The recommended textbooks address the NGSSS and are aligned to Florida's assessment program.  Teacher training in the use of both textbooks and the ancillary materials will be provided during the summer, pre-planning, and on district inservice days.  Teacher Notes for each course will be produced and provided to all teachers.

The District Secondary Mathematics Textbook Adoption Committee is recommending that the district adopt the instructional materials on the attached list.



Recommendation
Adopt the instructional materials listed as recommended by the District Secondary Mathematics Textbook Adoption Committee.
