Math
The study of Mathematics provides a foundation for the learning of science, technology, and for the interpretation of quantitative information in other subjects. It teaches students how to reason logically and develop skills useful in everyday life.
Greater understanding of mathematics will be essential for today's students for them to be successful in tomorrow's job market. Students will need to be proficient in:

understanding mathematics

computing fluently

applying concepts to solve problems

reasoning logically

engaging in mathematics to make sense of it.
The links in this section are designed to connect and support schools as they work collaboratively to continuously improve knowledge and skills necessary for effective mathematics instruction, including the use of appropriate assessments to inform practice.

K5 Mathematics  Georgia Mathematics
The Georgia Mathematics Curriculum focuses on actively engaging the students in the development of mathematical understanding by using manipulatives and a variety of representations, working independently and cooperatively to solve problems, estimating and computing efficiently, and conducting investigations and recording findings. There is a shift towards applying mathematical concepts and skills in the context of authentic problems and for the student to understand concepts rather than merely follow a sequence of procedures. In mathematics classrooms, students will learn to think critically in a mathematical way with an understanding that there are many different ways to a solution and sometimes more than one right answer in applied mathematics. Mathematics is the economy of information. The central idea of all mathematics is to discover how knowing some things well, via reasoning, permit students to know much else—without having to commit the information to memory as a separate fact. It is the connections, the reasoned, logical connections that make mathematics manageable. As a result, implementation of Georgia Standards of Excellence places a greater emphasis on problem solving, reasoning, representation, connections, and communication
68 Mathematics  Connected Math Project (CMP)
The overarching goal of CMP is to help students and teachers develop mathematical knowledge, understanding, and skill along with an awareness of and appreciation for the rich connections among mathematical strands and between mathematics and other disciplines. The CMP curriculum development has been guided by our single mathematical standard:
All students should be able to reason and communicate proficiently in mathematics. They should have knowledge of and skill in the use of the vocabulary, forms of representation, materials, tools, techniques, and intellectual methods of the discipline of mathematics, including the ability to define and solve problems with reason, insight, inventiveness, and technical proficiency.
High School  College Preparatory Mathematics
The course balances procedural fluency (algorithms and basic skills), deep conceptual understanding, strategic competence (problem solving), and adaptive reasoning (transference and extension).
