I have written an outline of one possible version of the foundational topics of secondary school math, covering key concepts usually taught in grades 7 to 10. The idea was to write a one-year review course for seniors who have had trouble with math up to that point, but still intend to go to a two-year college.
I tried to incorporate the input I received from teachers at two-year colleges, as well as my own sense of what is at the same time important, accessible, and interesting.
I am hoping the course outline (entitled “Mathematics Overview”) will be useful to a broader audience, in addition to the one mentioned above. For example, it could be used in two-year colleges. Or it could be stretched out over two years, and serve as the skeleton of a middle school curriculum. Or it could be used by any secondary school teacher as a guide to a different approach to use when teaching various topics, instead of —or in addition to— what they would otherwise do.
The outline is available here for download.

It has everything in such a logical fashion! Loving it… Now I want to create an early algebra version of this course for my Moebius Noodles project.
I need to find out about your project!
