At least I think it’s good news…from today’s Herald:
Math classes to get overhaul in bid to improve grades
A curriculum announcement by the Education Department Tuesday will add up to big changes in how math is taught in this province.
The department is changing the math curriculum for grades Primary right through to Grade 12, and also changing the Grade 10 academic math course from a semester course to a full-year course.
The change to how Grade 10 academic math is taught means students will learn the course material over 220 hours of class time spread over the year rather than 110 hours in one semester, Jennex said. The number of concepts students are expected to be proficient in is also being reduced, with the rest being introduced in later grades.
You can read the rest of the article here. Nova Scotia is also modifying the curriculum to be in line with the WNCP Protocol . I personally think this is a change for the better, but not everyone agrees.
