      Success in Mathematics provide the instructional framework for developing the skills
      students need for both AP and college-level work.

      on best practices for helping students learn, as well as underlying research on how best to
      present and reinforce new content learning.

      is organized into short, interactive activities that require students to participate through
      discussions, making their own notes about concepts, and demonstrating learning through
      multiple means of evaluation.

·         Integrated teaching and learning strategies:  Embedded in each activity in are
      Suggested Learning Strategies that help students use a methodical approach to learning
      new content.  These learning activities are designed to encourage students to take control
      of their own learning by identifying which strategies work best for them.

·         Assessment for learning:  Multiple opportunities are provided to assess student learning.

      capacity to deliver challenging curriculum to meet the needs of all students while honoring
