The Hanover County Mathematics Curriculum
is focused on building students’ Mathematical Proficiency as identified
by the National Research Council (2002). The five strands:
Understanding; computing; applying; reasoning; and engaging students in sensible, useful and doable mathematics help guide the Hanover program.
The Virginia Department of Education Standards of Learning (SOL) are fully incorporated into the Curriculum. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (2000), Curriculum Focal Points (2006) and Focus in High School Mathematics, Reasoning and Sense Making (2009) also serve as valuable resources. Our goal is to prepare students for life, the workplace and the scientific and technical world of tomorrow. The 21st Century skills related to life and career, learning and innovation, information, media and technology are all incorporated into our work.
Mathematics courses include: Mathematics K-7; Pre-Algebra; Algebra I; Geometry; Algebra, Functions and Data Analysis; Algebra II; Algebra III with Trigonometry; PreCalculus; AP Calculus AB and BC; AP Statistics; IB courses; and semester courses in Statistics, Discrete Mathematics and Computer Programming. Workshop courses and resources are offered for students needing extra assistance. Our goal is for all students to be successful in mathematics by problem-solving, reasoning, communicating, making connections and representing their mathematical ideas.
