Teaching middle school is not for the faint of heart. But if you're called to do it, you know there's nothing else quite like it. Join us in discussing what works - and what doesn't.

Judo Math

JudoMath.com I am passing this along to everyone because a couple of years ago, my daughter had the teacher who created this. What she learned in his class has carried over for the past two years and she still does very well at math. Last year, 8th grade at High Tech Middle (the grade he teaches) had a 41% Advanced and 33% Proficient score on the California Standardized Test for math, with only 8% in Below Basic and 1%(!) Far Below Basic. That is mind blowing. I haven't found any school yet in San Diego that comes close to those scores.

I can give you more information about how Judo Math worked for my daughter. This isn't a sales pitch, just information for math teachers if they are interested (because I REALLY dislike Connected Math and am tired of teaching my son REAL math when he gets home. Thank goodness he will be in 8th grade next year)
