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.
