I have searched and searched and am unable to find a description of what Math SB is for 6th grade math at UMS. I have emailed my son’s dean because we suspect it is not the correct level for him, but in the meantime as we wait for a response; do you know what math level the MATH SB is? Thanks! 1. August 2017

A:  Thank you for your question.  SB means that the teacher uses the Standards Based (SB) grade book. SB could appear after any class depending on the assessment approach of the teacher. Mathematics at sixth grade is not a leveled class, and we provide a differentiated instructional model similar to elementary school.
