Spring is here!!!

Wow! You would think that with COVID still raising its ugly head, time would slow down. Nope! Days are flying by at warp speed. I am trying to think of it as a blessing, but there are still days that I want to curl up with a good book and hide away! Smiles!

Our materials were originally developed with the "Common Core" just starting to bloom. Well, it's been awhile and states around the country have updated or amended their curricula to meet their needs. From what we have seen, most of the Common Core standards still reside within these improvements.

Since New York state is on the cusp of testing their newest curricula standards, called the Next Generation, we have decided it's time to update, again.

So . . . we are:
1. amending some materials to be more standard specific.
2. adding new materials where needed
3. designating which materials we feel fall under which standards.
(CCSS and NGMS)

ATTENTION Junior High Folks!
You're being done F I R S T !!!!!
Both for MathBitsNotebook and for Subscription Folks!

NOTEBOOK: You will see NEW web pages appearing and other pages being amended.

SUBSCRIPTION:
You will see more emphasis on specific GRADE LEVEL materials.
BIG NEW ITEM - REVIEW materials by sub-topic sections per each main heading, and by grade level.
NEW quizzes by grade level
NEW Caching Games by grade level
NEW sub-topic areas where needed
NEW/amended materials by grade level
As each main section is completed, you will see a "What's NEW Stuff" link to show you specifically what has changed or been added to each sub-topic in that section.

Algebra, Geometry and Algebra 2 FOLKS: Behind the scenes work is still going on with planning your upgrades. Since you still have a little time yet before the "crunch" of new testing materials hits you, we hope you can hold on for us to catch up to your level.

PreCalculus: We had a great time earlier this spring working on more of the PreCalculus section. We originally created our website to address PreCalculus and Calculus (as RegentsPrep was dealing with the other sections at that time). When RegentsPrep died, we were deluged with requests to get something else up and running. Then Common Core hit and we updated for those. Now, Next Generation is hitting and we are upgrading for those.
WE WILL GET to PreCalculus and Calculus (as we love these areas). The problem with PreCalculus is it's size - so many topics.

Stay healthy and enjoy the sunshine!!!

Live long and love math,
Fred and Donna
