The Math Department promotes a rigorous, coherent, and focused mathematics education program for all of our students. We teach the Common Core State Standards in a clear and in-depth manner, which allows our students the opportunity to be successful in math. In addition to mastering the math content that is taught, our students will also explain their understanding, justify and critique reasoning, apply problem solving skills to real world examples, and connect different math skills to each other and to the real world. By the end of 8th grade, our students master the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math curriculum. In 8th grade, they also take Algebra I, which is a Carnegie unit course.
