• Mathematics

    Mathematics is a language used to identify, describe, and investigate patterns and problems of everyday life.
    The District 205 Mathematics Program provides all students with the opportunity to become productive members of today's technological society.  Through the concepts of measurement, estimation, data analysis, geometric relations and algebra, the program develops mathermatical problem solving, computational and communication skills.  Lifelong learning, the making of mathematical connections and an appreciation for mathematics is promoted.  We use a dynamic, multi-faceted approach that includes use of the latest technology, manipulatives and remediation.
    The District 205 Mathematics Program follows the guidelines set forth by universities, the State of Illinois, professional organizations, the NCTM Standards and School District 205.
