Juan Acosta, Math, Independence High

Curriculum Unit (pdf)


Students are often taught basic math with only a computational focus math and then criticized for not knowing the concept or for being below grade level. This unit is designed as a starting point to infuse vocabulary and writing within the structure of the math classroom. Assignments will be crafted with a focus on technical and subtechnical words[i], concept exploration and short writing prompts.
