• College Preparatory Mathematics (CPM) 2018-2019 Syllabus

     

    Teacher:  John S. Coulter

    832.264.4017

     

                As required by HB-5 which was approved by Texas Legislation in 2013, the purpose of the College Preparatory Mathematics (CPM) course is to provide an opportunity for high school seniors to demonstrate college readiness in mathematics so they are able to begin taking credit-bearing courses their first year of college without mandatory enrollment in developmental mathematics courses.

                If, by the end of a student’s junior year, s/he has not yet demonstrated college readiness in mathematics via satisfactory performance on the Algebra I STAAR EOC, PSAT, SAT, ACT, TSI, or any other measurement accepted as a formal indicator of college readiness by the Houston Community College, the student will be offered enrollment in the CPM Course. The CPM course may count as a fourth-year mathematics course required for graduation starting the 2015-16 school year.

                The prerequisite for enrollment in the CPM course is Algebra II. In order for a student to be deemed “college ready” by HCC – that is, ready for enrollment into MATH 1314 as a college freshman – the student must pass the HCC-provided final exam for each semester of the CPM course AND earn an overall grade of C or better for each semester of the CPM course.

                The curriculum for the CPM course has been developed through a partnership involving Houston ISD mathematics teachers, the HISD Curriculum and Development Department, and the Houston Community College. The content of the course synthesizes concepts from the HCC developmental mathematics courses MATH 0409 and MATH 0312 and includes concepts from College Algebra MATH 1314.

    (NOTE: although students may NOT use graphing technology on the final exam provided by HCC, the use of graphing technology as a discovery and analytical tool is highly encouraged.)

    The Mathematical Process Standards are integrated throughout the course in all activities and lessons. Teachers should refer to these standards for instructional strategies and depth of rigor. Specific process standards have been highlighted for each unit, but these process standards should not be the only process standards associated with the daily lessons.

    Mathematical Process Standards. The student uses mathematical processes to acquire and demonstrate mathematical understanding. The student is expected to:

      CPM.1A Apply mathematics to problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace.

      CPM.1B Use a problem-solving model that incorporates analyzing given information, formulating a plan or strategy, determining a solution, justifying the solution, and evaluating the problem-solving process and the reasonableness of the solution.

      CPM.1C Select tools, including real objects, manipulatives, paper and pencil, and technology as appropriate, and techniques, including mental math, estimation, and number sense as appropriate, to solve problems.

      CPM.1D Communicate mathematical ideas, reasoning, and their implications using multiple representations, including symbols, diagrams, graphs, and language as appropriate.

      CPM.1E Create and use representations to organize, record, and communicate mathematical ideas.

      CPM.1F Analyze mathematical relationships to connect and communicate mathematical ideas.

    Teacher:  John S. Coulter

    832.264.4017

     

                As required by HB-5 which was approved by Texas Legislation in 2013, the purpose of the College Preparatory Mathematics (CPM) course is to provide an opportunity for high school seniors to demonstrate college readiness in mathematics so they are able to begin taking credit-bearing courses their first year of college without mandatory enrollment in developmental mathematics courses.

                If, by the end of a student’s junior year, s/he has not yet demonstrated college readiness in mathematics via satisfactory performance on the Algebra I STAAR EOC, PSAT, SAT, ACT, TSI, or any other measurement accepted as a formal indicator of college readiness by the Houston Community College, the student will be offered enrollment in the CPM Course. The CPM course may count as a fourth-year mathematics course required for graduation starting the 2015-16 school year.

                The prerequisite for enrollment in the CPM course is Algebra II. In order for a student to be deemed “college ready” by HCC – that is, ready for enrollment into MATH 1314 as a college freshman – the student must pass the HCC-provided final exam for each semester of the CPM course AND earn an overall grade of C or better for each semester of the CPM course.

                The curriculum for the CPM course has been developed through a partnership involving Houston ISD mathematics teachers, the HISD Curriculum and Development Department, and the Houston Community College. The content of the course synthesizes concepts from the HCC developmental mathematics courses MATH 0409 and MATH 0312 and includes concepts from College Algebra MATH 1314.

    (NOTE: although students may NOT use graphing technology on the final exam provided by HCC, the use of graphing technology as a discovery and analytical tool is highly encouraged.)
