Honors/AP Math Summer Work 
 
CHECK BACK HERE IN MAY FOR THE 2018 SUMMER WORK!
 
All students taking Honors Sixth, Seventh, or Eighth Grade Math, in addition to those taking Honors Algebra I, Geometry Honors, Statistics, and AP Calculus BC, are required to complete summer math work. Summer work is designed to keep you engaged with mathematics during the summer break, review previously learned skills, and begin to build on those with new skills that will aid in your success in the next course.
 
Please encourage your student to work on these as independently as possible. Certain sections specifically mention that they should be completed without the use of a calculator. It is not recommended to complete the work all in one setting. Rather, the work can be broken into smaller chunks to be completed throughout the summer. Teachers will review the summer work with students upon return to school in August.
 
*STEM Scholars, if you are entering:
-6th grade, complete the Honors Math 7 Summer Work. 
-7th grade, complete the Honors Algebra I Summer Work.
-8th grade, complete the Geometry Honors Summer Work.

            The most common question students as math teachers at every level is, "When will I use

            math?" WeUseMath.org is a non-profit website that helps to answer this questions. This

            website describes the importance of mathematics and many rewarding career

            opportunities available to students who study mathematics.

K-12 New Math Standards Presentation
Scroll to the bottom to find the standards PD activity completed with teachers at their schools during faculty meetings.
 
 
2017 Revised TN Math Standards
 
KEY POINTS
  • The current focus of standards remains the same as the original instructional shifts.
  • The revised standards represent a stronger foundation that will support the progression of rigorous standards throughout the grade levels.
  • The revised standards improve connections within a single grade level (horizontally), and between multiple grade levels (vertically).
 
 
 
What Remains the Same?
  • The continued goal to prepare students to be college and career ready.
  • Instructional shifts already in place should continue to be part of classroom instruction.
    •      Focus: The standards are focused on fewer topics so that students can dig deeper within the mathematics.
    •      Coherence: Topics within a grade are connected to support focus. Additionally, standards are linked across grades to ensure vertical coherence.
    •      Rigor: The standards set expectations for a balanced approach pursuing conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, application, and modeling.
  • The Mathematical Practice (MP) Standards remain an integral part of supporting the math content standards.
    •      MP1: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
    •      MP2: Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
    •      MP3: Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
    •      MP4: Model with mathematics.
    •      MP5: Use appropriate tools strategically.
    •      MP6: Attend to precision.
    •      MP7: Look for and make use of structure.
    •      MP8: Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
  • The structure of the standards remains categorized in grade level (K-8), conceptual categories (9-12), domains (K-12), clusters (K-12), and standards (K-12).
  • The K-12 Mathematics Learning Progressions remain the same:
 
What is Different?
  • In addition to the Mathematical Practice (MP) Standards, the revised mathematics standards incorporate four Literacy Skills for Mathematical Proficiency. These are in place because communication in mathematics employs literacy skills in reading, vocabulary, speaking, listening, and writing.
    •      Use multiple reading strategies
    •      Understand and use correct mathematical vocabulary
    •      Discuss and articulate mathematical ideas
    •      Write mathematical arguments
  • Language was revised in the standards and examples were provided for clarity and consistency.
  • Specific modeling standards, aligned with MP4, appear and are indicated with a star (★).
  • The current standards are categorized as Major Work of the Grade, Supporting Work, and Additional Work. The revised standards are categorized as Major Work of the Grade and Supporting Work.
  • The revised standards have a new visual layout. For example:
What is Different? (continued)
  • There were more revisions to Algebra 2 than any other course or grade. This course is now better aligned vertically and to the ACT College and Career Readiness standards.
  • The fourth year mathematics pathway in high school was restructured. More can be found about the grades 9-12 revisions below.
 
 
 
Overarching Revisions

  • Most of the Major Work of the Grade remains the same.
  • Supporting Work of the Grade and Additional Work of the Grade is combined as Supporting Work of the Grade.
  • Revised language to provide clarity and continuity.
  • Revised a small number of standards to strengthen coherence by condensing, expanding, and removing standards.
  • Revised a small number of statistics and probability standards.
 
Grades 9-12
 
  • Supporting Work of the Grade and Additional Work of the Grade is combined as Supporting Work of the Grade.
  • Traditional pathway remains the same
    • Traditional Pathway

      • Algebra 2
  • Removed or shifted a small number of standards to the Major Work of the Grade to streamline vertical progression.
  • Revised language and examples to provide clarity and continuity.
  • Shifted a small number of Supporting Work of the Grade standards to fourth-year mathematics courses.
  • Restructured fourth-year courses to reflect post-secondary readiness by removing three courses and adding a new course, Applied Mathematical Concepts.
    • Current Fourth-Year Math Courses: Advanced Algebra and Trigonometry*, Discrete Math*, Finite Math*, Bridge Math, Pre-Calculus, Statistics, Calculus
    • New Fourth-Year Math Courses: Applied Mathematical Concepts, Bridge Math, Pre-Calculus, Statistics, Calculus.
 
Applied Mathematical Concepts Course 
  • Applications and modeling using mathematics are the primary foci.
  • Designed for students interested in careers that use applied mathematics, such as banking, industry, or human resources.
  • Designed with industry needs in mind.
  • Some content from Finite Math and Discrete Math was carried over for the new course.
  • Alignment with ACT College and Career Readiness Standards.
  • Sample potential applications for topics are: 
    • Counting, Combinatorics, and Probability
    • Financial Math and Linear Programming

Math Standards Comparison Activity
(K - Algebra I)
 
Using the recording sheet and standards chart for your grade level, compare the 2016-17standards to the 2017-18 standards to determine if a standard has been dropped from the course, added to the course, revised, or if there was no change.
