Mathematics education, kindergarten through grade twelve, provides curriculum, instruction, and assessment which
students an equitable opportunity to become mathematically literate citizens. Students acquire confidence,
competence, enabling skills, and those habits of mind which assist them to solve problems both independently
and collaboratively, in mathematics courses and in other endeavors. Communication of reasoning using the
language of mathematics, making connections between mathematical ideas and the real world, and using technology
to facilitate reasoning and problem solving are vital parts of the mathematics program. Outcomes aligned
with the Maryland Content Standards have been developed to support this curriculum.
In elementary schools, mathematics is a broad-based curriculum in which students build a strong foundation in
algebra patterns and functions; geometry; measurement; statistics; probability; and, number relations and
computation. Students demonstrate these concepts through the processes of problem solving, communication,
reasoning and proof, and making connections to the real world.
In middle and high schools, students continue to refine and extend mathematics knowledge. All students are
expected to master
algebra and geometry. Most students will continue the study of mathematics after geometry by taking subsequent
courses in Algebra II, Trigonometry, Precalculus, and Advanced Placement Calculus. Students are given
to enhance mathematics studies by taking courses such as Foundations of College Mathematics, Advanced Placement
Statistics, and Advanced Placement Computer Science.
