Welcome to the RCS Mathematics Department website!

 

The RCS School District follows the New York State Curriculum for grades K-12. It is our goals to teach your child the beauty of mathematics in order to help them become problem solvers who communicate and reason mathematically. In order to do this, we have integrated the recently updated New York State Curriculum with our local curriculum to meet your child's needs. Please visit the NYS website for curriculum information at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/ciai/mst/math/home.html

 

Elementary/Middle Level

In May, your child (grades 3-8) will take the New York State Assessment in Mathematics. Students enrolled in the Accelerated Math 8 Program will also take the New York State Integrated Algebra Regents in June. The curriculum integrates the five content strands with the five process strands. The five content strands are number sense and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement and probability and statistics. The five process strands are problem solving, reasoning and proof, communications, connections and representation. You may access more information on the NYS grades 3-8 curriculum at

High School Level

The primary goal of the mathematics department at the high school is to promote an increased participation and success in the study of mathematics. The Mathematics Department offers many courses including University in the High School Pre Calculus and AP Calculus. All students must complete at least three years of mathematics and pass one Regents examination to achieve a Regent’s diploma. The high school follows the New York State mathematics curriculum. For more information, go to http://www.p12.nysed.gov/ciai/mst/math/standards/core.html


The first year of assessments based on the Common Core standards will be 2012-2013.
The RCS Mathematics Department will be evaluating their curriculum to meet the needs of their students and the common core standards during the 2011-2012 school year. Information on the Common Core Standards can be found at New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics.
