D205 Mathematics Resource for Parents

D205 Mathematics Resource for Parents - Are you looking to learn more about the District’s new math curriculum and our Eureka Math resource? There is a new website, click here, dedicated to providing math information for D205 parents. A number of linked resources, including the critical areas at each grade level, unit titles, videos and guides are posted.

As always, questions regarding your child's curriculum or experience should first be directed to your child's teacher.

This is an excellent resources for parents to learn about the math curriculum from Kindergarten through College Algebra.  

The information is divided by the following:

  • By grade tab (Kindergarten through 8th grade, geometry, pre algebra, advanced algebra and trigonometry, and college algebra 
  • Lists grade level specific critical areas of focus
  • Lists the different modules by grade
  • Provides parent resources to help your child with math 

Khan Academy

Khan Academy: If parents are looking to assist their child at home they can use their students MAP scores on Khan academy for recommended practice resources.  Khan academy  click HERE.

Math Pathways

See D205 Math REACH Acceleration here and below.

MATH ACCELERATION

Acceleration, as defined by the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC), is "a strategy of progressing through education at rates faster or ages younger than the norm." 

Beginning in Grade 3, REACH Mathematics is an accelerated program in which standards are compacted, resulting in students covering more content than is typically covered in a school year. This leads to students completing curriculum ahead of grade-level standards.

Identification & Placement of Gifted Students

IDENTIFICATION AND PLACEMENT OF GIFTED STUDENTS

In District 205, students are identified for gifted services based on a combination of assessments such as MAP performance, ability assessments, and teacher observations.  For a detailed overview of identification and placement of students visit the District 205 REACH website.

REACH Curriculum

REACH curriculum focuses on English and Math studies. REACH English focuses on either enrichment, extension of skills or above grade level studies.  Math is focused on above grade level studies.  For more details on the REACH curriculum, visit the District 205 REACH website.
