Math The Mathematics area of study is designed to build a strong foundation in mathematical understanding and procedural skills, as well as to prepare students to meet the standards for 21st Century critical thinking and problem solving. The Mathematics curriculum includes the areas of ratios and proportional relationships, the number system, expressions and equations, geometry, and statistics and probability. The courses are aligned with the Common Core State Standards and designed to cover the equivalent of a year-long, traditional school curriculum. The main goals of the Common Core State Standards are to establish the knowledge and skills necessary for college and career readiness among high school graduates, and to continually develop these skill sets at each grade level.

MATHEMATICS - The Learning Network Blog One example of the new Science Take video series. As our regular readers know, the mission of this blog is to find New York Times content suitable for teaching and learning — then, via lesson plans, writing prompts, quizzes and more, suggest ways for teachers to use it. In the course of our daily scavenging, we naturally pay close attention to the sections and features that most people think of first when they think “New York Times”: breaking news, Op-Eds and editorials, reviews, multimedia and photojournalism, important special reports and, increasingly, video.

Stella's Problems Welcome to the ORC Stella website. The core of this collection is a library of more than 600 non-routine mathematics problems known as Stella's Stunners to be launched set by set over the coming months.
