  • Videos

  • Group work

  • Active learning

  • Literacy strategies

  • Textbook / course materials

  • CRMS content

  • Direct instruction

  • Technology: Calculators and Spreadsheets

  • Current events

Created by faculty from GRCC and partner school districts.

Provides rigorous alternative to calculus track for high-school seniors.

Senior Course Development

Investigate deep and interesting topics in mathematics while preserving and improving algebra competency.

Rekindle the excitement and beauty of mathematics.

Senior Course Development

Pre-Development Issues

  • 1 semester or 2 semester course

  • Module based or stand alone course

  • H.S minimum math requirements

  • Competing AP math courses

Pre-Development Issues

  • Available high school math teachers

  • Time to meet

  • What’s in a name? Discrete MathBAT MathAdvanced Quantitative ReasoningCollege-Prep Math

  • Applications in Mathematical Reasoning

Graph Theory


Linear Programming


Statistics and Probability

Fair Division

Course Content Semester I



Modeling continuous functions: linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, and logistic

Game Theory

Course ContentSemester II

Assess students at beginning and end of year with WAMAP.

Administer student and teacher perception surveys

Observe students’ progress post-senior year

Course Assessment

Professional development: “just-in-time”

Content and pedagogy

Course materials and supplies


Calculators and sensor/motion probes

Substitute cost assistance


Engage in hands-on learning

Establish a learning community

Instructor Support

Excitement for new material

Administrative/counselor support

The magnitude of the project was a surprise

Always expect material will require more time than intended for writing and editing

Democratic approach takes time but leads to a richer course

Needed one decision maker eventually

Lessons Learned in Creating a New Course

Collaboration across and within sectors

Interest and awareness by administrators and instructors in other disciplines

Mathematical engagement of students

Teacher Reflections

Always expect that teaching the material requires more time than intended

Class preparation is critical

Additional information for the instructor resource manual

Teacher prep time and money

Administrative support

Need resource/content individual for help

Pilot test materials need enough polish to engage and support instructors, but will need significant revision

Assessment requires piloting: content and delivery

Lessons Learned Implementing this Course

Communication across sectors:

Summer Symposiums

COMING SOON! Summer Symposium - August 25, 2008

Revised Math Standards

Facilitated by Dr. Susan Hudson-Hull, UT Dana Center
