Mathematics Grades 6 - 8

  • Goals of The Mathematics Program Grades 6 - 8 
     
    All students should be afforded the opportunity to achieve mathematics proficiency through an integration of understanding, comprehending, applying, reasoning, and analyzing. The math opportunity for students must be rich and complex and connected to real life experiences. Through a specific math language, students will be able to communicate comprehension in both oral and written form. We must enable all of our children to acquire math skills, understanding, and attitudes that they will need to be successful in their careers and life.   
     
    Goals of Regional Algebra 1 
     
    All students in the High Point Region should be afforded the opportunity to achieve mathematics proficiency through an integration of understanding, comprehending, applying, reasoning, and analyzing. The math opportunity for Algebra 1 students must be rich and complex and connected to real life experiences.
