    I.  DESCRIPTION

    IB MYP Mathematics curriculumprovides a powerful universal language while promoting analytical thinking,problem solving, abstract thinking, and critical thinking.  Using math with confidence allows for problemsolving and decision-making in everyday life. 

     

    Throughout this course students willwork toward developing the qualities of the IB Learner Profile throughthe course curriculum. IB Learners strive to be:  Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers,Communicators, Principled, Open-minded, Caring, Risk-takers, Balanced, andReflective.

     

    A strong emphasis will be placed onthe MYP fundamental concepts.

    o  Holistic- Holistic learning connects the class topics andprovides a global view of issues. Holistic learning allows students to become aware that knowledge is aninterrelated whole and the relevance of learning.

    o Intercultural- Interculturalawareness focuses on developing students’ skills, knowledge and skills as theylearn about other cultures.  Examiningmultiple perspectives helps to foster respect and tolerance.

    o Communication- Communication supports inquiry andunderstanding and is fundamental to student expression and reflection.  Language acquisition is emphasized and allowsstudents to explore many forms of expression.

     

    II.  MYP AIMS ADDRESSED BY THIS COURSE

    IV.  MAJOR INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS/RESOURCES

    The primary source of material willbe Envision Math book (Scott Foresman). Canvas is used to enhance the curriculum offering more review,practice, and/or challenge.

     

    V.  KEY INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES/APPROACHES TOLEARNING/TYPE

    The methodology used in the classincludes centers (to meet individual needs), group work and activities, gradelevel discussions related to real world math, interactive technology,vocabulary building, individual reflections on concepts learned, chapterprojects, homework assignments that differentiate for all learners.

     

    VI.  FORMATIVE AND SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENTS USED,INCLUDING MYP ASSESSMENT

     

    Students will complete a variety offormative assessments including centers, quizzes, tests, projects, homework,daily work, presentations and work characteristics (behavior, respect,cooperation, following directions, participation, and the ability to workindependently). Students will be provided rubrics that were modified from theIB MYP assessment criteria. There will be a final exam after each chapter.

     

    The overall evaluation will begiven by comparing the achievement to the ability level.  The evaluation will be O (outstanding), G(good), S (satisfactory), and N (needs improvement).
