Nestell, Brittany P.
MetadataShow full item record
If you had two choices of high school mathematics curricula -- one that is traditional, one that is reform -- which would you choose? What factors, either personal or of the curriculum, would be important for you to consider? These questions are vital to students at P.C. High School, a large, suburban high school in southwestern Michigan. They have choices as to how they will learn mathematics, and this choice is incredibly empowering. When students choose based on compatibility to the program and personal goals, success comes naturally and easily. When the match does not work out as well, students still have a choice to change, which is an invaluable asset to the district.
