Mrs. Higgins


Hi!  I’m Cari Higgins, your student’s math teacher for the 2018-2019 school year.  This is my 19th year in the Rio Rancho District.  I received my Bachelor’s degree from Central Michigan University and additional certification from University of New Mexico.  I have two children in Rio Rancho schools – my daughter is a junior in high school and my son is in 5th grade.  I also have a fabulous husband for over 20 years!  I love reading and spending time with my family.  Being from Michigan originally, my husband and I are both Detroit Lions fans (I’ve heard all the jokes – I know) and watch as much football as we can.

You are welcome to contact me at any time at (505) 867-0711 ext 111 or email me at Below if a brief syllabus for the year.    Thanks!

2018-2019 SYLLABUS


First Quarter will focus on proportions, ratios and rates involving fractions, scale drawings, and addition and subtraction of integers.

Second Quarter will focus on multiplication and division of integers, applying operations to solve problems using expressions, equations, and inequalities.

Third Quarter will focus on additional work with equations and inequalities to solve geometry problems, but most of the focus will be on percent problems.
