District 12's Math curriculum is aligned to the Illinois Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Our staff works hard to support students in meeting grade-level expectations while also delivering interventions and enrichment to students with diverse learning needs. You can learn more about each grade level's state standards at http://www.corestandards.org/Math/We use Big Ideas (K-8) as our core resource for Math instruction. Our teachers have access to supplemental resources such as BrainPop and IXL to help support our Math curriculum. Identified 7th graders have an opportunity to begin Pre-Algebra and take Algebra in 8th grade. Our 8th graders take the PSAT in October for placement at Lake Park High School. District 12 uses iReady's benchmark assessment to identify areas of strength and need in math and to assign students to a variety of intervention and enrichment opportunities.
