PLANTATION, Fla. -- Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) is increasing the number of middle school students enrolled in the Elements of Mathematics: Foundations (EMF) curriculum from 40 to several hundred over the next several years. EMF was created for mathematically talented children by the Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science (IMACS), an independent teaching and educational research institute based in South Florida.
EMF is an online curriculum that covers Florida’s math standards for sixth, seventh and eighth grades, which allows BCPS to offer EMF as a complete math curriculum for the district’s middle school students.
A survey of current BCPS/EMF parents found:
• 100 percent said that their child’s focus, study skills and ability to analyze complex problems have improved since beginning EMF.
• 92 percent believe that EMF has made their child more ready for high school and college mathematics.
• 92 percent report that their child finds EMF enjoyable and challenging.
