GPA Plans Math Info Sessions for Families

Sept. 20, 2018 – Guilford Parent Academy (GPA) is inviting parents to information sessions on the new math curricula implemented this year across Guilford County Schools (GCS).

Illustrative Math, provided by nonprofit Open Up Resources, is GCS’ new math resource for middle schoolers where students learn by solving problems in mathematical and real-world contexts, making connections between concepts and processes when solving math problems. In elementary schools, students are building a math foundation with Eureka Math. Provided by the nonprofit agency Great Minds, it’s the only open source comprehensive math curriculum aligned to the Common Core State Standards at every grade.
