TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – The Vigo County School Corporation talked about a new math curriculum at Monday’s school board meeting.

The new guidelines are being implemented this school year. They were approved last school year.

“Everyday Mathematics” will help teach students with hands-on activities. Parent involvement is also part of the project. At the middle and high schools in the county, students are using “Alex.”

It’s an artificial intelligence software that adjusts to each individual student through a series of tests and lessons.”

“It will allow students to work at their own paces and master standards as they move through the learning spiral and go back and repeat some of the areas they might struggle with a little bit,” said Dr. Karen Goller, VCSC Deputy Superintendent.

Dr. Goeller says it’s early in the adoption process to tell how the new curriculum is working out.

However, she says school leaders are excited about the opportunity to help students grow.
