Happy Summer!


New tidbits for MathBits subscription areas:
• JrMathBits:
• New practice hardcopies under "Functions"
• The last 2 QUIZZES in our (31) quiz series are still in development.

• AlgebraBits, GeometryBits, Algebra2Bits:
The on-line quizzes are receiving positive reviews, so we are planning to expand them to the other areas. The software we are using had a recent "update" that created a problem for "math" entries. So, we are working with them to clear this up. Hopefully we will get the issue resolved so we can begin creating more quizzes for the fall.


New at MathBitsNotebook:
Junior Level
for grades 6-8 is completely OPEN.
Functions now open!.
The JrMath Notebook sections are Common Core/ Next Generation compatible.


We have started developing PreCalculusBits!
We are attempting to develop the Subscription and Notebook sections at the same time. We will see how this idea progresses. The Notebook web pages take much longer to develop, so if we get too bogged down, we will finish the Subscription first. We are attempting to include a wide range of materials which will cover CCSS, NY-NextGen, CLEP, as well as the materials from our high school and college PreCalculus courses. NOTE: these materials will not be available this school year as we have just started working on this level.

NY Next Generation Standards

The New York Board of Regents voted to drop the Common Core name in favor of "Next Generation Learning Standards" slated for a roll out in September 2020.
