New Standards Designations

• For Notebook:
You will be seeing "the beginnings" of our "standards designation" system as we update to coordinate with the NY Next Generation Mathematics Standards, while also maintaining the Common Core State Standards for folks outside NY. The icons are designated in each section, and JrMath and Algebra 2 already have some content labeled.
The Algebra 1 and Geometry sections are now seeing the beginning of their standards designations.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

• For Subscription Areas: All subscription sections are now displaying the changes being brought by NY Next Generation Standards (click the "main" headings in the Table of Contents). Changes will be appearing slowly throughout the content this year.

• AlgebraBits Subscription: Your section now has its first icons connected to content, along with some adjustments to existing materials in these sections. More additions will be made periodically.

• GeometryBits Subscription: Your section now has its first icons connected to content, along with some adjustments to existing materials in these sections. More additions will be made periodically.

• JrMathBits Subscription: Your section already has its first icons connected to content, along with some new additions and some adjustments to existing materials. More additions will be made periodically.
NEW: Super Game - Paper Football-Ratios (grade 6+)
NEW: Super Game - Percents Wheel Spin (grade 6+)
NEW: Game - Counting Sheep Bingo - Ratios, Rates, Proportions

• Algebra2Bits Subscription: You have an advantage for the updating. As we are working on the PreCalculus, we are coordinating with the Algebra 2 section. As such, we are trying to upgrade your Algebra 2 section as much as possible as we go. You will see the icons appearing in the subscription content, and there will be new additions and some adjustments to existing materials. For example, if an icon designates NGMS, the content will not contain 3x3 systems or references to parabola focus/directrix. Some pre-existing materials have been altered to meet this designation. More additions will be made periodically.
NEW: Lucky Lottery Bingo - Complex Numbers
NEW: Eggo Game - Quadratics - updated to NGMS
NEW: Eggo Game - Polynomials - updated to NGMS

------------------------------------------------------------------------

• PreCalculusBits Work (Notebook & Subscription)
We are working on the PreCalculus materials. As you know, we are trying to develop the Subscription and Notebook sections at the same time, so that when it opens you will have all resources available at once.
We are including materials to address:
1. Common Core Fourth Year
2. NextGeneration (Plus) for New York state
3. CLEP-PreCalculus (College Level Examination Program)
4. Several extra topics from our high school courses
5. Several extra topics from our college
PreCalculus courses
We think we will have addressed "all" of the special topics that you have requested we include.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

We have so many things we want to add to our materials. We just keep finding more and more materials in our files and in our imaginations that we want to add. If there were only more than 24 hours in a day, we might be able to get it all included. Nevertheless, we will keep working at it. Smiles!

Live long and love math,
Fred and Donna
