Secondary Math Grades 6-12

Guiding Philosophy:

The mathematics curriculum guidelines envision that all students achieve mathematical competency through a strong mathematics program that emphasizes problem solving and communicating mathematical reasoning. Acquiring such competency depends in on a clear, comprehensive, coherent, and developmentally appropriate set of standards to govern curriculum these expectations.

Mathematical problem solving requires the solver to search for a method for solving a problem rather than following a set procedure. Students will formulate questions, model problem situations in a variety of ways, generalize mathematical relationships, and solve problems in both a mathematical and an everyday context.

The ability to communicate mathematical ideas coherently is an essential component of a student's mathematical development. By talking and writing about mathematics, students will make convincing arguments that represent mathematical ideas both verbally and symbolically.

Primary Objectives:

The mathematics curriculum for students grades 6-12 is based upon the strands outlined initially by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics in The Principles of Mathematics Education and formulated by the Massachusetts Department of Education in Massachusetts Mathematics Curriculum Framework.
