For this reason, Mathematics I, which is part of the new integrated mathematics pathway, would need to be added to the Education Code.â€œIt is important we update our laws to reflect the reality of what is being taught in our classrooms. I believe AB 220 accomplishes this,â€ stated Assemblymember Holden.Since 2010, California and other states have adopted the same standards for mathematics and other subjects. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).If signed into law, Assembly Bill 220 would update the California Education Code by removing an outdated reference to the 1997 mathematic standards, and by specifying that completion of Mathematics I would satisfy the high school graduation requirement so that pupils, regardless of what mathematics pathway school districts choose to follow, are able to meet the high school mathematics graduation requirements.

Their names were not immediately released.“There is no indication that this is a random act of violence…or that they were targeted,” Det. Lt. John Azzata, commander of the Nassau police Homicide Squad, told reporters Thursday. “If she died of natural causes and he committed suicide, it could be out of love.”The woman had been dead for “longer than days,” he said, noting that investigators found some signs of trauma on her body.He added that there were seven cats in the house, some of which were dead. Most of the live cats have been captured and sent to a shelter while the traps have been set for the remainder, he said.Glen Cove Mayor Ralph Suozzi said there had been more cats in the past at the house, which has been subject of complaints and “red flags” from city code enforcement officers.The bodies were taken to the Nassau County Medical Examiner’s office, where autopsies are being conducted to determined their cause of death.
LEICESTER, England, (CMC) – Without a win on tour and with confidence quickly draining, West Indies Women face a massive challenge in turning around their ICC Women’s World Cup fortunes when they face South Africa Women in their third game here today.The reigning Twenty20 World champions and 2013 50-overs World Cup finalists have been off the boil in the tournament, losing all five warm-up matches along with the first two games of the formal campaign.And with five games left in the preliminaries, the Caribbean side are well aware that another defeat would seriously put in jeopardy their chances of making the final four of the competition.Under-pressure captain Stafanie Taylor said Saturday the importance of the South Africa contest at Grace Road was not lost on her her side.“We know how important all games are going forward especially starting tomorrow,” the 26-year-old said.“I think we need to take things in stride and coming tomorrow we will be looking to play hard cricket and fight for this one.”A source of major concern for West Indies will be the way their batting has crumbled in the series. In the opening game against reigning champions Australia Women, they were 123 for two batting first before collapsing to 204 all out.And against India Women last Thursday, the Windies appeared in good shape at 69 for one but were held to 183 for eight.Their batting was also exposed in the official warm-up game against South Africa in Oakham nine days ago when they were bundled out for an embarrassing 63.Teenaged opener Hayley Matthews has been the best batsman with scores of 46 and 43 but no Windies batsman has managed to pass 50.However, Taylor said her side were focussing on pulling all facets of their game together and executing on game day.“We don’t want to think too much about the end result, that will take care of itself. We know how these pitches play, we’ve played here before,” the Jamaican continued.“All the pitches will play exactly the same because they are good pitches so if we bat first we have to get runs on the board and bowling first we have to bowl them out for a decent target to chase it down.”Their best showing on tour to date came at the Grace Road venue even though they went down to Pakistan Women by five wickets, 11 days ago.In that encounter, they managed to get up to 246 with consistent batting and then pushed the Pakistanis who only got home with 14 balls remaining.Taylor said it was important to repeat all the positive things from that game if they were to seriously challenge the Proteas.“We looked in pretty good nick so we could definitely look at the footage and see … the good things that we did so we can come out tomorrow and replicate that and put on a good performance,” she stressed.“They’re a good team so we expect a good game. All the teams are not going to roll over and say ‘take it’ so we know we have to play hard cricket.”West Indies are sixth in the standings without a point while Australia are top with four points, with India second also on four points but with an inferior net run rate.
