Fayette County Public Schools is committed to excellence in mathematics teaching and learning for all students. Mathematics provides a way to understand patterns, quantify relationships, and make predictions based on data.
The mathematics curriculum is based on the Georgia Standards of Excellence. The standards provide a pathway for teachers to help develop students into confident and competent mathematical problem solvers. Critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creative problem solving are key components that also help develop a deep understanding of mathematics for students. Using various instructional methods including modeling, manipulatives, hands-on activities, and technology, teachers actively engage students in experiences that provide opportunities for rich problem solving and constructing and applying mathematical concepts. Teachers also connect mathematical concepts to real life situations that are incorporated throughout the mathematics curriculum to promote relevance and engagement for students.
The Georgia Standards of Excellence for Mathematics for each grade level may be found at GeorgiaStandards.org.
