Mathematics

District 52 uses the New Illinois Learning Standards to teach Mathematics to students in Grades K-8. Grades K-6 use the Everyday Math Curriculum and Grades 7-8 Math Curriculum is aligned to standards and integrates technology.

There are eight Math Practice Standards that are implemented in all grades. These are the practices students use while learning the mathematics content. They include:
  1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
  2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively
  3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
  4. Model with mathematics
  5. Use appropriate tools strategically
  6. Attend to precision
  7. Look for and make sense of structure
  8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

The Math Content Standards include:
