High School Courses for Mississippi
Mississippi educators have access to 13 online secondary courses and expanded digital mathematics tools and resources thanks to a $1.5 million award to the Mississippi State University Research and Curriculum Unit through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund.
The projects are part of $4.3 million allocated to MSU in January during a second round of funding by Gov. Tate Reeves. The GEER program is funded by federal COVID-19 relief legislation and administered by state governors.
The following courses launched this fall: AP Computer Science Principles; Biology I; College- and Career-Readiness English I, II, III and IV; Chemistry; Exploring Computer Science; Foundations of Algebra; Foundations of Biology; U.S. History from Post-Reconstruction to Present; U.S. Government; and World History from Age of Enlightenment to Present. Some of the courses slated for release in late spring of 2022 are Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Human Anatomy and Physiology, Physical Science, and Physics.
All courses, aligned to the Quality Matters K-12 standards, include presentations, assignments, and a teacher resource guide that can be modified and used in conjunction or independently of the courses.
