Request for Course Descriptions

ESE is requesting course descriptions for help with DDMs.  See emails highlighted below.  If you have questions, feel free to email me at aldick@doe.mass.edu.  Thanks!

The purpose of this request is to solicit a collection of course descriptions and/or class syllabi for the courses below. These descriptions will be useful in the DDMs meeting, which are also listed below.

Please send any course descriptions and/or class syllabi to Beth Peabody bpeabody@doe.mass.edu or Ron Noble rnoble@doe.mass.edu.

*Course descriptions will be useful as the MA Curriculum Frameworks in Mathematics—while very useful as a source document—do not present course-specific standards. Brief descriptions also may help panelists focus on a common understanding of the course scope as a starting point.
