eMATH Curricula is Structured, Rigorous and Customizable
Molly Bordenkircher has been teaching mathematics for more than 30 years at the middle school and high school levels. She began using eMATHinstruction (eMATH) curricula seven years ago for the Algebra I and Geometry courses she teaches at River View Junior High School. The students in these courses are grade-accelerated 7th and 8th grade students who are taking high school math courses.
Molly says that eMATH has proven to be a good fit for her and her students. The eMATH curricula appealed to Molly because of the rigor and structure of the lessons, homework, and assessments. Molly appreciates that the materials are editable with a Teacher Plus membership, as she likes having the flexibility to customize without having to create anything from scratch. The students enjoy having a physical workbook and access to the online video lessons. Additionally, Molly says the eMATH curricula are well aligned to the Ohio state standards.
The structure that this curriculum offers makes it ideal for me. I think it meshes well with my personality and my style of teaching. The kids respond well within the structure and predictability of the lesson and homework. They have the capacity to work ahead if they want to or do some additional review work if they need it. It makes them a little more autonomous.Molly Bordenkircher, Mathematics Teacher
