Math Curriculum Resources
Math instruction in Rock Hill Schools is designed to provide students with concepts and skills that enable them to use math in their everyday lives and future careers.
Instruction also prepares students for success in the state testing program. The curriculum at every grade level is based on the South Carolina College- and Career- Ready Standards for Mathematics. The standards include key concepts that organize the content into broad categories of related standards. Students also receive instruction in the processes of problem solving, reasoning, connections, communication, and representation.
Instruction is provided through a variety of strategies. Teachers give students work that is meaningful and engaging. There is a focus on problem solving (with real world applications) and using math in ways that make sense to students at every grade level.
Students have a variety of appropriate digital tools to use in learning math.
