• The goal of the mathematics department is to provide all students with a guaranteed and  viable curriculum rooted in the New Illinois State Standards based on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the Standards for Mathematical Practice (MP). The CCSSM are driven by two major evidence-based design principles: focus and coherence. These principles are meant to fuel greater achievement in a deep and rigorous curriculum, one in which students acquire conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and the ability to apply mathematics to solve problems and formulate mathematical models. We believe our Integrated Mathematics Curriculum will provide all students the opportunity to become College and Career Ready.
