Math Design Collaborative Improving Math and 21st Century Skills

For several years, Boyle County Schools has been in the forefront of new developments in education, using many innovative instructional strategies to further improve student growth. One such strategy being used in 4th-12th grade classrooms comes from the Math Design Collaborative, a joint effort between the district, the Kentucky Department of Education, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. MDC structures are used to teach the Common Core math standards, as well as the 8 mathematical practices outlined in the standards. These practices include abstract reasoning, perseverance, and constructing and critiquing arguments. Assistant Superintendent, David Young, explains how MDC has been incorporated into the Boyle County evaluation system in an effort to measure skill growth in students: “Math Design Collaborative units, along with Literacy Design Collaborative and Project Based units, have been built into the Deeper Learning segment of PGES (the evaluation system) as a lens through which we see 21st Century Skill Growth in students. As a result, our students are learning how to communicate, problem solve, and think critically in mathematical settings – skills which will pay huge dividends for them in their lives.”
