Welcome to CHCCS Middle and High School Math Page!
The secondary mathematics program engages students in meaningful learning through individual and collaborative classroom activities with focus on sense making of mathematical ideas and mathematical reasoning. Our mission is to ensure that all students have access to a high-quality mathematics curriculum, effective teaching and learning, and resources that will maximize the students' learning potential.
The secondary math curriculum develops important mathematics as well as connections between areas of mathematics and between mathematics and the real world. The middle school curriculum incorporates Open Up Resources, The Utah Middle School Math Project, and other curriculum resources . The high school curriculum incorporates Open Up Resources in Math 1, Math 2, and Math 3 and other curriculum resources.
Please refer to the Middle School Math Placement Guide for math placement in middle school. School Principals/Guidance Counselors will follow up with families about final waiver decisions. Families who are new to CHCCS, please contact your child's school for waiver information upon registration.
According to the state graduation requirement policy, students must earn four mathematics credits at the high school level, which include Math 1, Math 2, Math 3, and a fourth level mathematics course.
