NC high school math classes set to change this fall


RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCT) – The North Carolina Board of Education is preparing to vote on changing the course curriculum for high school math classes that would kick in next school year.

The Board heard a version of revisions for math standards for high school Math 1, 2 & 3 classes during the Wednesday meeting. Part of the goal is to integrate certain skills throughout the classes.

State Superintendent Dr. June Atkinson said changes include updated instructions for teachers to know exactly what is expected of them.

A high majority of schools have already responded to the proposed changes and Atkinson said the board will continue to look for more feedback.

“We’re walking a very thin rope in that many people say we need to change the standards and there are other people saying don’t change the standards too quickly,” said Dr. June Atkinson.

Atkinson said the board is expected to vote at the next meeting on the implementing the changes after more feedback is collected.
