OUR GOALS FOR THIS YEAR
1. Improving student thinking and perseverance while working on math questions.
2. Increase the use of complex multiple choice questions so students are familiar with doing the math required to make the correct choice.
3. Support students in the dissection and understanding of questions when answering open ended questions so they can provide an accurate and thorough response.
