Math teachers are getting creative in Georgia -- branching away from using a single textbook because none follows the state curriculum, which was overhauled in 2006. "I use old textbooks from a plethora of subjects because of the way it's changed," one middle-school math teacher said. "A lot of the eighth-grade stuff [under new standards] is in old high-school books, like the old Algebra 1 books." Teachers are also using online materials to supplement their lessons.
