In alignment to District 300’s central mission, to ensure all students are college and career ready upon graduation, students who graduate from our schools will be critical thinkers, risk takers, and utilize skills and technology to address real world problems and situations.
Elementary mathematics students will focus on number sense and algebraic thinking. In the younger grade levels students will start with making tens, progress to addition and subtraction then multiplication and division. In each grade level students will focus on problem-solving, geometry, measurement, and data. Students will learn to reason mathematically and explain their reasoning.
In middle school students will focus on ratios and proportions, algebra readiness, statistics, geometry, and the number system. Students master fractions, ratios and rates, and using expressions and equations to develop statistical understanding. Students will learn to reason mathematically and explain their reasoning.
In high school mathematics students will focus on college and career readiness. All high school mathematics classes are one full school year. All students will start with Algebra I, then take Geometry, followed by Algebra II. After completing Algebra II, students will have additional options in higher mathematics targeted towards their post-secondary focus.
