Note: This curriculum is based on a schedule with 50 minute classes. In addition, I’m a firm believer in having a very flexible pace. Specifically, I believe teachers should have discretion when determining how much time to focus on concepts. So, if your students need extra time with solving equations, for example, then spend extra days with them. This curriculum is definitely not one size fits all, and I’m actually going at a different pace this year. Please feel free to use it as a guide, but certainly do not feel like you’re doing something wrong if you can’t follow it day by day.
