Utah BOE Recommends Walch's Supplemental Resources

Walch Education’s CCSS Integrated Math I, II, III Supplemental Resources Recommended by the Utah Board of Education

Walch's Problem-Based Tasks, Support, and Honors materials support Utah students at all levels of high school mathematics.

PORTLAND, ME (January 12, 2016) – Walch Education's Math I, II, and III Problem-Based Tasks, Math I and II Support Supplements, and the Math I, II, III Honors Supplement were recommended by the Utah Board of Education for use in Utah's classrooms.

The Problem-Based Tasks use engaging real-world scenarios to engage students with a problem-based approach to the knowledge and skills required by the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Optional coaching questions scaffold the tasks and guide students in solving the problems.

The Math I and II Support Supplements address the prerequisite skills necessary for success in Math I and II and recommend instructional strategies to support struggling students. These resources may be used in Support, Special Education or ELL classes, in Math Labs or RTI programs, or for individuals or groups requiring additional support. The Math I Supplement can be used in combination with Walch’s Math I program to provide a two-year supportive Math I course for students needing additional time and support to achieve the standards of Math I. According to the Utah reviewers, the Support Supplement “would be a great help and support for teachers with struggling students and would really help with assessment and differentiation.”

CCSS Honors Supplement for High School Math addresses the 37 CCSS (+) standards that will prepare students for advanced math courses may be used in honors or accelerated courses or with individuals and groups of students requiring additional challenge.

“The Problem-Based Tasks, Honors and Support materials can be used alongside any high school math curriculum and provide teachers with additional tools to ensure the success of all math students”, says Jill Rosenblum, Vice President of Education at Walch.
