School officials in the Community High School District in Downers Grove, Ill., are proposing changes to the district's math curriculum to align learning with Common Core State Standards and make the transition from middle-school to high-school math more cohesive. If the school board approves the measure, incoming freshman would have two course options -- Foundations of Math I and Math I. Foundations would offer extra support to students who may not be ready for more-advanced concepts, and Math I would be a blend of algebra, geometry and statistics.
