The Georgia Mathematics standards are designed to achieve a balance among concepts, skills, and problem solving. The standards stress rigorous concept development and real-world applications while maintaining a strong emphasis on computational and procedural skills. At all grades, the standards encourage students to reason mathematically, to evaluate mathematical arguments both formally and informally, to use the language of mathematics to communicate ideas and information precisely, and to make connections among mathematical topics and to other disciplines.
The standards provide clear expectations for instruction, assessment, and student work. They define the level of work that demonstrates achievement of the standards, enabling a teacher to know "how good is good enough." The standards isolate and identify the skills needed to use the knowledge and skills to problem solve, reason, communicate, and make connections with other information.
Our mathematics department will empower and build confident students who connect mathematics to their everyday life, career goals, and community.
Our mission is to build and retain committed staff determined to deliver well-planned differentiated instruction that will reframe and grow students’ mindset towards mathematics. Meanwhile cultivating mathematically sound students equipped to conquer endless professional success after high school with confidence.
