Other Notes and Suggestions:
1. Often the Grade 7 concepts can serve as a brief review for the Grade eight students
before focusing on Grade 8 content.

2. As a result of our new curriculum reducing content for us, we no longer have a
spiraling curriculum with overlap of content from grade to grade. This will require
teachers looking at their instructional practices for mathematics and considering different
approaches when they have a split grade. An option for teaching a split grade when the
content for each grade is different is to consider looking at scheduling. One grade works
independently in another subject area (social project, art) while the teacher works in
mathematics with the other grade. Or have one grade work on the “Practice” while the
teacher leads the “Explore” or “Investigate” and the “Connect” with the other grade.
