At least according to our school's approach, simply passing is not good enough to move up.PeggyUnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-10348701.post-63939262170754609542013-05-25T11:12:46.074-07:002013-05-25T11:12:46.074-07:00How did they pass Algebra 1?

Students who, at the beginning of Algebra 2, aren't truly ready for Algebra 2--what do we do with them, have them go back to Algebra 1?<br /><br />As it stands right now, the need is unmet. It's "sink or swim" for those kids.Darrenhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15730642770935985796noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-10348701.post-5020666718566351912013-05-24T09:18:58.836-07:002013-05-24T09:18:58.836-07:00Darren,

I'm assuming that the original problem still wants/needs to be solved ...<br /><br />-Mark RouloAnonymousnoreply@blogger.com
