A new math curriculum coming to Waseca schools will offer a different approach for students from fourth through 12th grade, showing a shift toward more direct mastery of mathematical concepts. At the high school level, four different textbook series were examined. While the classes had online portions previously, Swanson said that they left room for improvement. “You really have to know the material and know the math to know what you’re looking at,” she said. The difference with the online portion for the new series is that the online lessons are aligned directly with lessons from the book, allowing students to have a lesson retaught if there was something they didn’t understand in class.
