Frequently Asked Questions
How do you recommend implementing the math curriculum bundle in the classroom?
There is a suggested pacing guide. It includes all of the notes, homework, and assessments for the unit. The activities are not included on that, since every district allots a different amount of time for each unit.
So, lets say that your students remember how to add decimals well, you might replace the notes day with just an activity for that concept, or skip it all together and move on to the next one. Overall, the bundle provides an excellent framework to pick and choose from, or if you are new to the grade level or without resources, you could start and day one and move forward.
Many teachers suggest using some of the activities and saving the others for intervention classes, tutoring time, or standardized test prep!
My curriculum pacing is a different order, will the bundle still work for me?
Yes, the units are organized in a logical manner, however your district may specify that geometry concepts be taught in the fall. While the unit in and of itself is not editable, you can easily rearrange the order and even adjust the pacing to meet your students needs.
My state doesn’t allow us to use CCSS on any of our resources, is the bundle a possibility?
Some states have moved away from the CCSS, but still have very similar standards. The resources within the bundle only include CCSS within the teacher directions, not on student pages.
My entire team is looking to use these resources. Is there pricing to meet our needs?
I do offer discounts to teams, campuses, and districts who are interested in implementing Maneuvering the Middle lessons. I have a few campuses around the country who have chosen to do this and have been very pleased with the ease of planning and preparation. Please contact me to inquire about the pricing and volume discounts.
