TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Jo Lynne DeMary

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

K-12 Mathematics Standards of Learning Enhanced Scope and Sequence

 

I am pleased to inform you that the K-12 Mathematics Standards of Learning Enhanced Scope and Sequence is available in Word and PDF format on the Department of Educations website. This resource is intended to help teachers align their classroom instruction with the revised Mathematics Standards of Learning that were adopted by the Board of Education in October 2001.

 

Teachers and curriculum specialists are encouraged to use the Enhanced Scope and Sequence as a resource for developing sound curricular and instructional programs. These materials are intended as examples of how the knowledge and skills from the Mathematics Curriculum Framework might be presented to students in a sequence of lessons aligned with the Standards of Learning.

 

A companion resource that describes strategies for differentiating instruction for limited English proficient (LEP) students and students with disabilities will be available within the month to assist school divisions in adapting mathematics instruction to meet the needs of these subgroups. Additional information about how to access these resources will be forthcoming in a future superintendents memorandum.

 

If you need further information about the K-12 Mathematics Standards of Learning Enhanced Scope and Sequence, please contact Deborah Kiger Lyman (dlyman@mail.vak12ed.edu), secondary mathematics specialist at (804) 786-6418; Karen Grass (kgrass@mail.vak12ed.edu) elementary mathematics specialist at (804) 225-3458.
