EC-12 Math


Students need to be empowered with mathematical literacy so they can value mathematics, reason and communicate mathematically, and become math problem solvers. Students need to make connections within mathematics, between mathematics and other disciplines, and between math and the real world. As students develop mathematical skills, it is important that they experience the enjoyment and fascination of mathematics, as well as the challenge of higher level mathematics.

The District 205 program is designed to help all students progress in mathematics. The importance of mathematics is independent of a student’s gender, ethnic origin, or socioeconomic status. All students need to develop number sense and an understanding of patterns and relationships. They also need a working knowledge of measurement, statistics, probability, geometry, algebra, estimation, and the ability to solve routine and non-routine problems. There is emphasis on concept building and problem solving with appropriate use of facts and definitions, algorithms, and technology.
