    Math Practices

    CHCCS K-5 Math curriculum is aligned with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study K-5 Mathematics.  The CHCCS curriculum gives all students opportunities to explore, investigate and apply real-life problems within a personalized learning environment. In K-5, students develop an understanding of algebraic thinking, operations in base ten, converting measurement and finding the area, perimeter, and volume of geometric shapes. Our goal is to foster a deep understanding of concepts while also building excitement about math.

     

    In K-2, our primary resource is Ready Mathematics by Curriculum Associates, which earned the top ratings in independent reviews by EdReports, the “gold standard” for K-12 curricular resources. In 3-5, we use resources from the NC Department of Public Instruction (DPI) to ensure close alignment with the End-of-Grade assessments. We also use iReady Math as a formative assessment tool K-5 to help monitor student growth and address students’ individual needs.

    Grading Practices

    Standards-Based Grading (SBG) is a grading system used by CHCCS that measures student mastery of content. We understand that learning is a progression; not all students master the same skills and concepts at the same time. We provide opportunities for differentiated pathways and empower students to be active participants in their own education.  All scores are based on a 1-4 scale with level 3 indicating grade-level proficiency. During the 19/20 school year, teachers in grades 3-5 have been trained in SBG and will be reporting on student progress using the SBG scale. K-2 teachers will be trained to apply the principles and practices with the goal of implementing in the 20/21 school year.

    Why use Standards-Based Grading?

    • Provides a clear picture of skills mastered and what still needs work.
    • Promotes opportunities for challenge and enrichment.
    • Allows students to monitor their own learning progress.
