Modifying Problems

Unfortunately we haven’t found any curriculum that meets all of our needs. We mostly write our own problems. However, we realize that not everyone has the time or the collaborative community to write their own curriculum. We wanted to share how you can modify current curriculum or other resources.

Here is an example of how we modified a problem from CPM Core Connections 3. The instructional goal of the problem was to address our standard 8.G.A.5 and for students to learn about the Exterior Angle Theorem.
