Engage New York is rigorous, grade level curriculum in English/Language Arts and Mathematics aligned to Common Core State Standards developed by New York State Education Department.  For more information, see https://content.engageny.org/.

SpringBoard is the college and career readiness program for all students in grades 6–12 developed by College Board. Its flexible framework integrates rigorous instruction, performance based assessments and professional development for teachers.  For more information, see http://springboardprogram.collegeboard.org/.

Agile Mind middle school mathematics courses for grades 6, 7, and 8 provide powerful foundations in ratios, proportionality, and algebraic and geometric thinking. Students use graphing technology, manipulatives, and other mathematical tools to develop conceptual understanding as they tackle and solve interesting problems.  For more information, see http://www.agilemind.com/programs/mathematics/middle-school-math/.

 

Agile Mind Intensified Algebra curriculum is a powerful combination of additional time; a challenging curriculum; and cohesive, targeted supports and interventions. With these tools and teaching supports in place, students can stay on track, graduate on time, and gain passage to advanced learning. For more information, see http://www.agilemind.com/programs/mathematics/intensified-algebra-i/.

 

Agile Mind Geometry introduces the tools central to the study of space and spatial relationships. Throughout the course, students will:  understand and apply the structure of—and relationships within—an axiomatic system, become adept with the tools central to the study of space and spatial relationships, use the classical methods of finding the area of two-dimensional shapes, including quadrilaterals and circles, learn basic geometry of three-dimensional shapes including methods of finding simple volumes and surface areas, develop spatial reasoning ability, including the capacity to represent shapes and figures concretely, pictorially, algebraically, and through the use of coordinate systems, use geometric representations and symbols to solve problems and prove theorems, strengthen their knowledge of the connections between algebra and geometry and solve real-world problems using a variety of tools.  For more information, see https://www.agilemind.com/programs/mathematics/geometry/.
