The goal of the Wicomico County mathematics program is for all students to develop as mathematical thinkers and problem solvers. By effectively utilizing Standards of Mathematical Practice, students apply reasoning to solve rich problems within a variety of authentic contexts.
Maryland's College and Career Readiness Standards
(based on the Common Core)--Video Intro
Standards of Mathematical Practice
Practice 1: Students make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
Practice 2: Students reason abstractly and quantitatively.
Practice 3: Students construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
Practice 4: Students model with mathematics.
Practice 5: Students use appropriate tools strategically.
Practice 6: Students attend to precision.
Practice 7: Students look for and make use of structure.
Practice 8: Students look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
Wicomico County has fully implemented Maryland's College and Career Readiness Standards (MDCCRS) in pre-kindergarten through grade eight, algebra 1, geometry and algebra 2.
This new curriculum addresses fewer standards so that teachers can deepen student thinking and understanding of the mathematics. Instruction focuses on problem solving, reasoning, and student perseverance. This curriculum is designed to teach mastery of the content.
