This year the middle school team is approaching math with a different spin. For each group of related learning targets, for example ratios and proportions, every learner will take a pretest to determine their level of understanding of the concepts, of from 6-10 related learning targets. Learners are grouped with one of three teachers and several students who are at a comparable level for a particular level for several of these targets. After learners reach proficiency for these targets they are regrouped with other learners and another teacher. This occurs until students reach proficiency in the 6-10 learning targets. Learners are then given a pretest for the next group of related learning targets and the process continues. In this way learners get the material that is just the right fit at just the right level for them. Learners also get the chance to work with three different teachers and different classmates on a rotating basis.
