NY Next Generation Standards

The New York Board of Regents voted to drop the Common Core name in favor of "Next Generation Learning Standards" with a roll out in September 2020.

New tidbits for MathBits subscription areas:
• JrMathBits:
- Under QUIZZES: You have 8 on-line quizzes now for your students to submit as hardcopies or as emails to you.
- Under Interactive Games: You have a new Geometry Find game.
• GeometryBits:
- Under Interactive Games: You also have a new Geometry Find game.
• JavaMathBits: Remember that our past full course CD resources (with tests, quizzes and assignments) is now updated to the Eclipse IDE and enhanced with more mathematical items. These subscription materials are for educators only. We endeavor to avoid selling to students by requiring school association/verification.
In many states, including NY, computer programming can serve as a mathematics graduation requirement (after the required course(s) is (are) met).
Don't forget our free Java lesson site,
