    Exciting News for PI+ Mathematics or PI+ Mathematics Curriculum Alignment

    A team of elementary and junior high PI+ teachers have been meeting this year to ensure that the mathematics curriculum for PI+ is rigorous and aligned from fourth grade through eighth grade. During this process, teachers have and will continue to review the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics which have been adopted by the state of Illinois, the progression of learning outlined therein, and the resources that are used to meet those standards. As we work to strengthen and align the curriculum, teachers will be field testing various resources to support students and meet the learning standards.
