Mathematics uses the language and science of patterns to describe the world in which we live, employing logic, observation, simulation, and experimentation. Mathematics is a universal means of communication.
To be well informed adults and to have access to desirable jobs, today's students require an education that goes far beyond what was needed by students in the past. All students must develop, deepen, and sharpen their skills, their understanding of mathematical concepts and processes, their abilities in problem-solving, reasoning, and communication abilities and hone their ability to make sense of and to solve compelling and complex problems. In order for this to occur, rigorous mathematical content must be organized, taught, and assessed in a problem-solving environment. Their mathematical knowledge must be connected to the ideas and skills found in all grade levels and content areas, as well as to real life situations outside the classroom.
Math Path I
*Three high school math classes during high school are required for graduation.
Math Path II: See our online assessment tool!
For a small number of exceptional math students, a more intensely compacted and even more rigorous math curriculum may be appropriate. While there is no perfect way to predict if students have the necessary requisite math knowledge and ability to apply that knowledge, our online assessment tool
may help determine if your incoming sixth grader is ready for this intense and rigorous path.
