New Math Standards In Texas

DALLAS (AP) - Some Texas children are finding their teachers are moving at a faster pace after a shift in math test standards has forced educators to cover more ground.

The Dallas Morning News (http://bit.ly/1oR0wct ) reported Saturday that the changes moved some content that previously was covered in higher grades - to lower grades and introduced new standards.

Students in upper grades will have to scramble to get up to speed with content that, according to the new standards, they should've covered in previous years.

A chart produced by the Richardson Independent School District shows that 46 percent of fifth grade students' curriculum remained the same, 28 percent was moved down from the sixth and seventh grade and 26 percent is new content.

Math standards for higher grades won't change until next fall.
