Comments, ideas and concerns about the math curricula at Andover Public Schools

Thursday, October 11, 2007

So, how is it going?

Please give some feedback as to how things are going in the math classrooms this fall. It is really important to have open and honest communication about what's happening in each of the middle schools. Posts can be anonymous.

So far 7th grade at WMS is more positive for us. My daughter is enthusiastic about the work. She is bringing home equations :) and is happy to be able to express herself in mathematical terms.
They completed the first module: Variables and Patterns. This week they took a pre-test before the next unit.

My 9th grade son is enrolled in Enriched Geometry at AHS. He is doing well but runs into difficulty with the more complicated algebraic manipulations, and he has trouble solving systems of equations.

It would be great to hear from some other people to find out how their kids are doing this fall. Thanks.

As far as 6th grade at Doherty, it is the same thing... a repeat of elementary math, with an emphasis on how the page is laid out and home work handed back to make it look "pretty". I am not surprised, but very much disappointed by the lack of differentiation and adherence to the Everyday Math curriculum.

I am also discouraged to hear that the same consultant who assured us there was plenty of algebra in the 8th grade curriculum and then told us that two years later that they all knew it was light on algebra.

I’m disappointed with the Math Curriculum at WMS – so much so that I have paid a huge sum to have an outside tutor teach my son algebra. I find the material light for even poor math students. It appears they are setting the bar to the lowest level. Last year my 6th grader was doing almost exactly what my 3rd grader was doing at Sanborn. If the administration doesn’t want to level math, why can’t they offer a program to send a group over to the high school for algebra? I was told my son was not responsible enough for this option. Why not have West take advantage of the fact that we are right next to the high school?

My daughter has had no major problems yet. She is getting her first test back this afternoon so we shall see. I do find her spending alot of time writing out the problems, wasted time. Math takes the longest to do of all her homework. I have a tutor on hold, pretty sad that nothing ended up getting fixed.

Buying memory cards is such a big hassle... You have to search online for prices, sort through which ones are genuine, go out to a bunch of stores,compare prices, finally buy your memory, and then constantly pray that the price doesn't fall in the next month or so.

I've been f'd over by crazy price changes in the past... especially this one time when I bought a Micro SD for my DS flashcard at what I mistakenly assumed was a steal, only to later see that it fell $5 in a week's time.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
[b][/b]
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
