The main source for developing the Mathematics Department standards and benchmarks document is Content Knowledge: A Compendium of Standards and Benchmarks for K-12 Education from Mid-continental Research for Education and Learning (McREL) and Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD).
The Mathematics Department document is a dynamic document, which is under constant review to be sure it is meeting the needs of the educational community. The purpose of a Mathematics Department standards and benchmarks document is to clarify what students are expected to understand and accomplish at each course and grade level, and provide a common set of expectations for the entire educational community.
Additional courses offered by the Mathematics Department include Honors courses in grades nine through twelve, a Mathcounts extra-curricular opportunity in grades six through eight and Advanced Placement Calculus in grade twelve. For more information about AP, go to our Advanced Placement page.
