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 math instruction will focus on number sense and algebraic thinking in order for students to develop conceptual understanding. In the primary grade levels, students will make tens, practice addition and subtraction, and progress into multiplication and division.
Fractions will become a priority in the intermediate grades. In all grade levels, students will focus on problem-solving, geometry, and measurement and data. Students will learn to reason mathematically, explain their thinking, and justify their answers.
Middle school math instruction focuses on ratios, proportions, algebra readiness, statistics, geometry, and the number system. Students engage in hands on activities in order to master fractions, ratios and rates, and use expressions and equations to develop statistical understanding. Students will learn to reason mathematically explain their thinking, and justify their answers.
High school mathematics instruction focuses on sequential experiences to lead students toward targeted post-secondary goals. A variety of elective courses allow students to pursue topics in their fields of interest. Students will learn to reason mathematically, explain their thinking, and justify their answers.
