Rockwood mathematics curriculum reflects the importance of mathematical literacy for all students.
The curriculum is designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills our students need for success in college and careers. To meet these expectations, our curriculum is student-centered and will allow for exploration, discovery, conjecture, and application of mathematics.
In an effort to produce a curriculum that meets the needs of Rockwood students, our work has been guided by parent, teacher, and student recommendations; guidelines from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the Missouri Learning Standards, including the eight Mathematical Practice Standards.
Mathematics is a fundamental skill used in all areas of life. Because students need to become lifelong mathematical learners to be successful in society, the Mathematics Department's goal to provide students with the necessary tools and opportunities to understand mathematical concepts. Another goal is to continually relate mathematics to real-world applications and situations.
