DISTRICT GOALS AND MANDATES
Goals
Understand that the following information is and should continue to be
regularly reviewed. Scope and sequence and many of the tests change on a
yearly basis. There are differences in the use and implementation of many
of the activities listed below. There should continue to be a desire and
interest in exploring alternatives to meet our goals more effectively.
Where a plan exists to accomplish the following goals in a more effective
fashion, this plan should be communicated to the building and district
level. As has been done in the past, if an appropriate plan is developed,
it has been honored. There are a number of legitimate and appropriate
deviations from our program that are presently going on with everyone's
knowledge and the Instructional Department's full support. Our commitment
is to find the best possible program. Every child is entitled to the best
possible program that our district can provide.
The overall goal of the District 59 Mathematics Program is to provide
students with those skills necessary to be successful in their later
education and careers. A quality mathematics program is more than simple
arithmetic or computational skills. While these skills are important and
are fundamental to the understanding of mathematics, our goals include
mastering mathematical concepts, understanding problem solving, and
learning to apply mathematics. Additionally, as a result of recommendations
from our 1998 District Mathematics Committee, we have the specific
operational goal of providing all students with a well balanced program
that is strongly linked to the Illinois State Goals for Learning. As a
result of these goals, the following aspects of the program should be
considered mandated and/or optional.
MANDATED PROGRAM COMPONENTS
1. Scope and Sequence
A well defined scope and sequence developed to ensure that all students
receive instruction in a relevant mathematics curriculum that best supports
our attempt to achieve the goals indicated above.
2. Assessment
To assure that student achievement is closely monitored so the success of
our program can be continually improved the following activities have been
mandated.
A. Chapter Tests
B. Math Local Assessments: Objective (Grades 1, 6)
C. Math Local Assessments: Performance (Grades 3, 5, 6, 7)
D. Achievement Test (Grades 2, 4, 6)
E. State ISAT Tests (Grades 3, 4, 5, 7, 8)
F. High School Placement Tests (Grade 8)
3. Program Direction
The direction is to integrate problem solving applications and vocabulary/
comprehension with the development of basic computation skills and
mathematics concepts. These are optional resources that are available to
accomplish this important direction:
- Library Media Center Support Materials
- Computer Software Programs
- Video Programs
- Videodisc Materials
- CD-ROM Programs
GRADE LEVEL MANDATES
Mandated: A balanced program using a basic text (Scott Foresman/Addison
Wesley Middle School Math Courses 1, 2, & 3, Glencoe Pre-Algebra, Glencoe
Algebra One, and their supplementary materials)
1) Basic Computation Skills and Math Concepts
2) Problem Solving and Application
3) Readiness for success in the high school curriculum
To achieve mastery in these areas at the junior high level, it is required
that a four-year plan closely linked to the State of Illinois Learning
Standards for Mathematics be followed:
