A well-planned Mathematics curriculum provides opportunities for inquiry, experimentation and technological design. Teachers, when teaching Math, should provide opportunities for students to engage in the Eight Mathematical Practice Standards. These standards are: make sense of problems and persevere in solving them, reason abstractly and quantitatively, construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, model with Mathematics, use appropriate tools strategically, attend to precision, look for and make use of structure, and look for and express regularity in repeated reason.
The Middle School Mathematics Essential Standards focus on: Expressions and Equations, Number System, Geometry, Functions, Ratios and Proportional Reasoning, and Statistics & Probability. The High School Essential Standards focus on Algebra, Functions, Geometry, Number and Quantity, and Statistics & Probability. There are different courses that are offered based off of grade level.
