Translating Success: How Careful Planning within a Problems-Based Curriculum Can Prepare Students to Enter College-Level Math Classes
Fillmore, Jessica
Horace, v23 n2 Spr 2007
Amy Biehl High School (ABHS) is a charter high school located in downtown Albuquerque that serves students from Albuquerque and the surrounding communities. Despite its population's differences in skills, special needs, socioeconomic class, race, culture, and English proficiency, it has one common goal for all its students: that they are able to succeed in college. The curriculum that the school uses in its efforts to achieve this goal is the Interactive Mathematics Program (IMP). IMP helps to prepare students for success in college by instilling a deep understanding of the generation and application of various mathematical concepts. The school currently implements two strategies in an effort to help students become better translators: one is the use of its own standardized exams, and the other is its outcomes-based grading system.
