School Type: Catholic

PROBLEM

Students are not able to connect Math and Science in real world situations. We believe students Math scores reflect their lack of basic skills.

HOW MIGHT WE…

Innovate a redesign of our Math curriculum to enhance student performance while connecting Math to the real world experience?

SOLUTION

We are making a target to improve math scores school wide. We want to have our students to connect math to real life experiences
We will employ creative scheduling to teach math –create a hook : no math homework: a zero period may be at the beginning of the day for math to keep us closer to a target. We will have recognition of student improvement on a weekly basis on Mondays and monthly recognition with grade level groups.
