  • What’s new in the Kentucky Academic Standards for Mathematics?
  • How will the new Mathematics Standards affect classrooms? 
  • What is the coherence between the new Mathematics Standards and the proposed Financial Literacy Standards?     
  • What does The Opportunity Myth say about mathematics assignments?
  • What is the 4-step investigative process for statistical reasoning - state, formulate, solve conclude? GAISE Report 
  • What is the mathematical modeling process? GAIMME Report
  • What mathematical content do students need to be college ready?
