"Numbers are the highest degree of knowledge. It is knowledge itself." - Plato
We live in a mathematical world. Whenever we decide on a purchase, choose an insurance or health plan, or use a spreadsheet, we rely on mathematical understanding.
The level of mathematical skills needed in the workplace has increased dramatically. In such a world, those who understand and can do mathematics will have opportunities that others do not. Mathematical competence opens doors to productive futures.
Students have different abilities, needs, and interests. Yet everyone needs to be able to use mathematics in his or her personal life, in the workplace, and in further study. All students deserve an opportunity to understand the power and beauty of mathematics. Students need to learn a new set of mathematics basics that enable them to compute fluently and to solve problems creatively and resourcefully.
The mission of the Mathematics Department is to develop in our students the mathematical abilities they will need to become productive citizens. We are committed to providing curriculum, instruction, and assessment that will actively involve students in constructing and applying mathematical ideas, to solve problems and enable students to express the mathematical connections in the world around us with algebraic, geometric, or numeric representations.
In Math there are no problems, only solutions.
Starting with the freshman class in the school year 2016-2017, District 230 transitioned to an Integrated Math Model. Integrated Math is a style of Math that integrates topics from Algebra, Geometry, Number Quality, Functions, Statistics, and Probability. For more information, please refer the Presentation Slides and the Questions and Answers documents. Our curriculum is aligned to the Mathematics Vision Project based out of Utah.
