We've adopted a new curriculum this year which I'm excited about. CPM allows students more time to work in groups and collaborate and discuss mathematics. I know as students talk about mathematical concepts, it helps them have a deeper understanding of what they are learning.
Since students can earn concurrent credit through BSU, it's as if the students are taking college calculus. That being said, this class is a very rigorous class which demands several hours a week for students to master the concepts. I not only want students to learn the material, but I want to help them understand the value of hard work in over coming hard things. I have had many students grow to love this class and the empowerment that comes from overcoming challenges and being successful.
