    About Me

    Welcome to High School Math.  Math is taught from the state mandated Common Core which contains Foundations of Common Core Math, Common Core Math I, Common Core Math II, and Common Core Math III.  For students on the old track of HS math, the subjects are still listed as Foundation of Math, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, and Survey of Mathematics.  There is a Common Core Math IV which is the higher maths such as Statistics, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus.

    The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
