CURRICULUM & INSTRUCTION
The Glen Cove Mathematics Department has collaborated with other Long Island school districts to create Common Core Math videos as part of a project entitled “ccvidhelp”. These videos are meant to help both students and their parents to understand the Common Core Mathematics curriculum associated with the Modules released by New York State. Upon completion of this project, YouTube videos will be available for each lesson associated with the Modules for grades K-9 (Algebra).
A link to the entire project can be found at http://bit.ly/ccvidhelp. Here, you will find links to all of the videos created by Long Island school districts involved in this collaboration.
